All Saints’ Preschool Director Job Description

All Saints’ Glen Rock, NJ is seeking an exceptional leader to assume the role of Director of the All Saints’ Preschool.  The anticipated start date for this position is September 2024.

Previously, All Saints’ Preschool served the Glen Rock community for nearly 40 years until the school was forced to close during the Covid-19 pandemic. We are now in the midst of a major renovation to modernize and enhance the preschool spaces, with the goal of opening our Preschool in Fall 2024.  This is essentially a “start up” of the Preschool and the Director will have responsibility for hiring the staff, selecting the curriculum and associated supplies.  This is a unique opportunity to co create the next version of the All Saints’ Preschool.

All Saints’ Preschool will offer a year-round, full-day childcare program to meet the needs of families in and around our community. We look forward to again providing infants, toddlers, and 2-5 year old early learners with a warm, supportive, engaging start in life. As in the past, All Saints’ Preschool will be open to all (regardless of faith tradition) and will seek to share our common values of welcome, love, peace, and service with our students and families.

Our values are:

  • To create an environment of love, peace, trust and inclusivity, easily connecting with diverse groups of people, respecting and celebrating all faith traditions.
  • To nurture the whole child – mentally, emotionally, physically, academically, and socially.
  • To work with parents and teachers as partners in the education of their children.

  • Work with the Board to select furnishings and materials to appropriately ready the school to welcome the children.
  • Guide our teachers and staff members in implementing our vision of nurturing the whole child – mentally, emotionally, academically, socially, and physically leveraging your passion for learning.
  • Partner with the Board and Treasurer to develop the annual Preschool budget.
  • Communicate frequently with parents and engage them in programs and fundraising, acting as the social connector for the community.
  • Attract prospective families through a strong presence in the community, effectively showcasing the benefits of the All Saints’ Preschool. Organize and execute community marketing events to raise awareness and drive enrollment.
  • Drive consistent business results, measured through family retention and conversion, enrollment growth, and efficient business operations. Partner with All Saints’ Treasurer to ensure fiscal operating excellence.
