The Hearth Room

Have you dreamt of running/launching your own school?  The Hearth Room is seeking a Head of School to lead the charge as we prepare for major growth in the next 18 months.  Since the school has only been open for 8 months, it may feel quite like owning your own business…without the startup costs!
