Job Description:



BEACH Church, a growing and vibrant United Methodist church is seeking a full-time Director of its Early Learning Center – a Christian-based, licensed preschool that provides quality care and education for young children in the Beaches communities of Northeast Florida.  This school honors the family as the child’s most influential teacher, and our professional education staff partners with those closest to the child to support safe, active learning in environments purposefully designed to inspire wonder that engages the whole child.

If you believe that early childhood is a critical time for intellectual and spiritual growth in a child, then the BEACH Early Learning Center is a place where you can have influence on a child’s experience and understanding of the love of God during this time in their lives.  We are committed to walking with families as they grow in faith and seek to inspire a love of learning in their young children.

This Preschool Director is a servant leader that displays the clear ability to communicate vision and provide strong management skills for developing and leading staff.  This leader is a teacher, a mentor, a team builder and a compassionate colleague.

As the Early Learning Center Director, you must be an exceptional listener and communicator with strong verbal and written skills.  You will be the principle liaison between the church, the preschool staff and the preschool families, and a visible presence on campus.

Your responsibilities will include: teacher development and staff management, registration and enrollment oversight, curriculum research and implementation, development of school-year calendar, budget preparation and oversight, facilities assessment and utilization, and compliance with all local and state laws and licensing authorities.

Additionally, you will participate with honesty and frankness at the Beach Church staff level where we take the mission seriously, but not ourselves.  You are expected to put your family first and maintain your heart for God’s work in a fun-loving staff environment that is dedicated to team-based ministry.

A degree in Education and practical administration/management experience is a must.  State license and Director Credential will be required.
