Executive Director


South of Market Child Care
780 Folsum Street
San Francisco, CA 94107

Start Date: December 1, 2019



ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND: SOUTH OF MARKET CHILD CARE was founded in 1970 and will be celebrating next year a half century of distinguished service. Noted for its Reggio Emilia curriculum and its dedication to low income children and families, SOMACC has earned its reputation as a leader in the provision of highest quality early childhood education, and support services to children and families.

SOMACC is one of the very limited number of organizations in this field with a business model dedicated to a socioeconomic classroom mix of subsidized children and private-pay children, reflecting the blighted/gentrifying neighborhoods served, projecting the deeply-felt institutional commitment to social justice, and believing that such a socioeconomic mix of children and families amplifies the value of the educational experience. In its Judith Baker Center, 20% of the class is private-pay; in the Yerba Buena Center, 50% is private-pay; in the soon-to-be-opened Transbay Center, a 50% private-pay balance is planned. The total number of children served in the first two centers is 132, with an estimated 40-80 children to be added when the third center opens later this year. Pre-school services include children from 2 ½ – 5 years; infant and toddler services include children from 3 months – 2 ½ years. Because of the quality of services and the reputation of SOMACC, the demand for services far exceeds their availability (e.g., more than 200 private-pay families are on the waiting list; City-wide waiting lists for subsidized families are far longer).

SOMACC places a premium on its philosophies of child development and early childhood education. The infant-toddler programs are guided by the Resources for Infant Education (RIE) approach; the pre-schools by the Reggio Emilia approach – both emphasizing the reinforcing power of parental/teacher relationships with children, together with the sense of self and capacity of explorative learning, self-direction, and the natural power of curiosity in children. There is a considerable body of research and practice since the mid- 20th century in the international early childhood development field supporting this “constructivist” approach. The classroom environment, the relationships between teachers and their children, the pre-service and in-service training of teachers, and the involvement of parents and families are all defined by these philosophies.

The new Executive Director of SOMACC will find a board and staff eager to maintain the high level of service for which the organization is known, and to build upon these services in the future. A values-grounded entrepreneurial leader, dedicated to RIE and Reggio Emilia principles, with a high level of business acumen, will be capable of shaping effective responses to the challenges above, and others – and will cherish this institution-building opportunity.

RELATIONSHIPS: The Executive Director reports to a dedicated 7-member Board of Directors. Direct reports to the Executive Director include the three site managers (Judith Baker, Yerba Buena, Transbay child development centers), the Director of the Family Resource Center, the Finance Director, the Business Manager, the Human Resources Manager, and the Development/Admissions Manager. In a very flat organization below the Executive Director, most of SOMACC staff are direct service providers.

QUALIFICATIONS: The ideal candidate will have:

• Sincere affection for low income children and their families, understanding of their challenges and needs, and an infectious passion – the proverbial “fire-in-the-belly”- for early childhood education and mental health. Will be committed to RIE and Reggio Emilia principles of curriculum and teacher engagement, promoting the empowerment of children of all ages to master their learning. Multicultural sensitivity, dedication to social justice, and comfort surrounded by diverse stakeholders. Expertise in early child development and dedication to the education of inner-city children, understanding of the clinical needs of children and their families, appreciation of the special needs of traumatized children. Ideally, extensive classroom experience and understanding of such organizations at every level.

• A history of and reputation for uncompromising integrity, inspiring trust in SOMACC, its board, its staff, its relationships with students and families, partnering organizations, funders, the community at large.

• Visionary ability to conceive new, expanded, improved services, both comfort with and ability to strategize and scale, and the capacity to execute on plan.

• Fundraising skills and the ability to recruit and fuel the efforts of volunteers.
• Extensive non-profit and/or philanthropic leadership experience, ability to manage the boundary between executive leadership and a governing board, and a lifelong history of public service.

• Profit and loss experience, a strategic perspective, entrepreneurial ability, and proven leadership, with a broad array of skills transferable to a mid-sized non-profit organization.

• Comfort with information technology and the ability not only to employ new technologies but to engage internal and external technical expertise to update infrastructure in support of efficient and effective operations.

• Exceptional communication skills, most importantly with a highly evolved capacity for active listening; facility with synthesizing information, and promoting interactive processes eye-to-eye, in groups, before audiences, in writing. Appreciation of the importance to leadership of high visibility to all staff and parents, of frequent presence in classrooms, in meetings, at stakeholder events, projecting an image of total involvement at all levels. Sincere enjoyment of community-wide activities, promoting a high profile of the SOMACC as the face and voice of the organization.

• Ability to identify, recruit, and engage able staff, and to motivate and mentor colleagues. A genuine understanding of and commitment to staff development through internal trainings and external associations. Commitment to high level performance of staff, of accountability by staff, ability to reward quality performance as well as to make difficult personnel decisions when necessary.

• Ability to delegate to staff and to micromanage only when necessary; ability to maintain a healthy executive balance among managing up, managing out, and managing down responsibilities; ease with completing any task, however minor, if the interests of SOMACC are served.

• Flexibility to be accessible and present to all constituencies; the ability to lead from behind or by example; the mature judgment and confidence to follow and to give credit wherever due; the internal strength and humility to inspire respect.

• Persistence, sensitivity, and attention to detail.

• High energy, durability, a healthy sense of humor.

Director & Founding Team Member


Chicago, IL

Start Date: January 6, 2020

At Village, we’re on a mission: create a more equitable, kind, and innovative world by more fully supporting little ones and their hardworking parents.

To fulfill this mission, we are building Reggio Emilia childcare communities where both parents and their kiddos are supported.

For kiddos, this looks like:
-Emergent curriculum rooted in mindfulness, movement, wellness, equity, and nature.
-Focus on emotional resiliency, boundary setting, and open communication in an effort to create self-actualizing adults.
-Anti-bias education & commitment to equity in all forms.
-Year-round outdoor immersions.

For parents this looks like:
-Support services like meals, dry cleaning, laundry, and errand running managed by non-educator staff. Parents can request these services during pick-up or drop-off (or online) for maximum convenience and time-saving.
-Monthly coaching sessions focused on conscious discipline and parenting principles.
-Weekly events focused on building community, strengthening family bonds, wellness, and overall growth.

We believe that by taking things off parents’ plates and providing support in this way, we can create space for self-care, growth, release, ego-work, and reparenting–space that will ultimately allow them to thrive as people and parents.

We are looking for a Director to join the founding team of Village to help us bring this vision to life.

Who You Are?
You’re an experienced educator with a big heart and big dreams. You believe in the power of Reggio, mindfulness, nature, equity, and wellness in changing the world.

You are excited about starting a school from scratch and redesigning parts of our care economy to more fully support the entire family. You know the challenges that may await us but understand that with aligned intentions and inspired action, we will bring our vision to fruition.

As the CEO supports parents, community partnerships, programming and events, and all administrative responsibilities, your experience allows you to take charge of the classroom. While you feel alive and aligned in the classroom, you are also passionate about cultivating skills and abilities in other teachers. You know how to effectively train folks and enjoy seeing them learn, grow, and succeed.

You’re committed to mindfulness, conscious discipline, equity, diversity, and inclusion and are ready to ensure it is the bedrock of our school. You also understand that it is pivotal we make quality, early-childhood-education more accessible while also paying teachers thriving wages and serving as advocates for our educators.

Most of all, you love to laugh, appreciate the wild and wonderful journey that is life, and are ready for your next Adventure with Village. You are excited by responsibilities that include:

-Serving as a teacher-leader during initial phases of launch.
-Identifying top talent through equitable, inclusive approaches.
-Training and coaching lead and assistant teachers while supporting them as independent leaders.
-Overseeing the effective and intentional implementation of Reggio Emilia, conscious discipline, outdoor immersion, and anti-bias education in Village schools.
-Ensuring our core values of growth, exploration, curiosity, kindness, and equity are embodied by all teachers and throughout the classroom.
-Managing and licensing and regulatory guidelines around early childhood education and daycare/pre-school operations.
