18 Sep Executive Director Opportunity
Tiny Trees Preschool is looking for its next Executive Director: someone deeply committed to affordable, high-quality early learning opportunities for all children and passionate about an emergent education model where children learn by exploring and playing in nature.
At Tiny Trees, there are no preschool buildings – the children learn in outdoor “classrooms” using a play-based curriculum that gives them the reading, math and science necessary to succeed in school, social emotional life skills, and a vibrant, nature-rich childhood. Tiny Trees offers kids a joyfully muddy preschool experience full of play, exploration, and wonder in the great outdoors, and helps them enter school ready to thrive.
With a vision of offering affordable preschool to all families, Tiny Trees has been in high demand since it opened three years ago. Tiny Trees seeks a talented leader who can build organizational capacity to support its initial rapid growth, and also create a strong foundation for future program expansion throughout the Puget Sound area and beyond. The successful candidate will have expertise in building infrastructure, a strong foundation in board and staff development, and experience scaling programs or organizations. The Executive Director will be experienced in forging and maintaining public/private partnerships to support the mission of the organization. Tiny Trees’ next Executive Director should share the organization’s commitment to equity and environmental stewardship, and be excited to occasionally pull on a pair of rubber boots and hike in the woods with 3-5 year olds.
