Child's View Montessori School Infant and Toddler Lead Guide


Portland, OR






CVMS has been serving Southwest Portland for over 36 years and value the community around us. Currently, we are seeking a Lead Guide to join our amazing infant and toddler teams. Our authentic spaces are nestled within SW Portland and boast large properties with plenty of space for discovery and gardening.

Our infant and toddler spaces serve children between the ages of 4 months and 3 years old; children transition from our Toddler rooms directly into our Primary classrooms. We are looking for a confident, respectful role-model with a sense of humor, growth mindset, positive attitude, environmental aesthetic and flexibility to boot! While we know there are so many options in this wonderful field, we feel confident that CVMS would be a meaningful work environment for either a newly-trained or experienced guide. We have a full time, trained Pedagogical Director to support all team members on their Montessori journey.

Qualified candidates should be trained (or be finishing training) by a MACTE accredited training institution and have a strong sense of the Montessori scope and sequence. This position is full time, year-round and offers a competitive benefits package consisting of health, dental and vision insurance, retirement benefit matching, paid sick, personal, mental health and vacation time, paid professional development training as well as the little perks in life that help us along the way, like chocolate, coffee/tea, treats and immense administrative and parental support! Our Parent Advisory group ensures that our staff gets extra love throughout the year.

Ideal candidates will have experience leading an infant and/or toddler community; comfortable being outside each day as well as comfortable with daily observation and recordkeeping. If you have strong communications skills, a passion for Montessori education, love to work collaboratively with adults and children, and want to be a leader in a rooted Montessori program, then this may be a positive fit! Please email your resume to Stacey Russo at or Amy Livingston at We are looking forward to welcoming another great human into our community!
