Where the wild things come to play! Our diverse childcare centre specialising in adventure, discovery, excitement and enthusiasm in learning now has a vacancy for an inspiring preschool teacher.

Our centre is a place where children can come to explore, research and investigate, and where making a mess is a part of everyday life. The outdoor space is set up to encourage exploration of our natural environment. 

We take the job of preparing children for a love of life-time learning very seriously and we do this by encouraging open thinking and discussion, problem solving, risk taking, independence and leadership.

What you can expect from our wonderful centre:

  • A planned programme reflecting adventure and discovery
  • The development of life skills through hands-on exploration
  • Experienced and qualified teachers who know how to extend children's learning in a fun and exciting way
  • Individual portfolios set up through Storypark for every child.
  • Healthy heart approved menus for all children.
  • Weekly bush walk adventure into Percy's Reserve.

Who is our ideal new teacher?

  • Level 7 ECE qualification, teacher registration and a current practising certificate
  • Confidence and commitment to working in collaboration with parents and families
  • A strong understanding of the Te Whāriki, and commitment to working with staff and parents to achieve continuous improvement and progress.

If this sounds like you, we are looking forward to receiving your application.

Here at BestStart, we are committed to providing you with ongoing personal development to ensure you and your career are being well looked after. BestStart teachers enjoy many benefits including:

  • Competitive salary
  • Quality uniforms
