Preschool Director Job Opening, June 2022

Preschool director opening in Albuquerque, beginning July 2022, for an interim role for the 2022-23 school year. Shepherd of the Valley Preschool is a developmentally appropriate program that offers children from 2 1/2 – pre-K a positive environment in which to explore and learn through play.   



The Interim Director should guide and support the school’s staff and families through this upcoming transition year.  The preschool enjoys a relationship based, collaborative culture between staff and with students and their families.  An ideal candidate would be willing to maintain the existing culture, curriculum, structure and schedule to the greatest extent possible.  Given the interim nature of this position, a strong communicator who is willing to work for program continuity is desirable. 

The Interim Director would also handle the daily leadership of the school, including welcoming families, weekly staff meetings, outreach events, the school’s budget and routine administration.  This position oversees the required annual reporting for accreditation, ensures compliance with state and local regulations, and tracks and completes requirements for current grant funding.  The director is supported in these roles by an executive board, a parent group and liaisons with the church leadership.  



The interim director should have:

 – a bachelor’s degree, preferably in early childhood education

 – previous preschool experience as both a teacher and administrator

 – ability to pass a federal background check



Salary $37,000+/year dependent on education and experience for 30 hrs/week with 2 weeks paid vacation + federal holidays.  

The preschool is a non-sectarian outreach of the church and an EOE employer.
