Exciting opportunity for experienced leader.

We opened our doors to the Pegasus community on 31 October 2016. We are a 65 licence centre, under the company umbrella of Evolve Education Group.

We have a warm and homely nursery for our 0–2½-year-olds, whose focus is on primary care, relationships and exploration. We also have our preschool classroom for 2–5 year olds designed to surprise and delight, with a focus on engaging children in meaningful learning experiences, beautiful and stimulating environments, and extending their working theories with an emphasis placed on inquiry and investigation. 

Our separate dining room for the children, separate art room and sleep rooms for both classrooms are also a massive design benefit, so is the added privacy of your own office!

You will take direct accountability for centre presentation, security and performance, including financial, educational, compliance, team leadership, staff management, family/whānau, parent relationships and administration.
