Montessori Children's House of Nantucket Nantucket, MA
The Montessori Children's House of Nantucket, a highly respected early childhood program with 40 students age 3 - 6 years, has been serving the island community's education needs since 1982. In the midst of a leadership transition, MCHN reached out to KSC to provide support and guidance for its board, faculty, and parent community.
KSC helped MCHN's Board of Trustees develop the necessary strategic initiatives to assess and navigate a critical leadership transition, to secure an interim Head of School in an extremely timely manner, and, ultimately, to identify and retain a dynamic permanent HoS. KSC continues to provide leadership coaching for the Board and MCHN's administrative team.
- Type: Board of Trustees and Head of School transition and leadership support
- Outcome: Parallel support and oversight structures were set successfully in place to ensure a seamless transition to a new Head of School. Ongoing Head of School mentoring and Board guidance has lead to the development of an updated strategic action plan and preparation for a full review of the school’s policies, programming, identity, and facilities. Concurrently, MCHN’s board is focusing on its own growth and ways to best support the school community.
