At our centre we strive for everyone who comes through our doors to experience a welcoming and peaceful place where you quickly become part of our family. We provide a fun and interesting environment where friendships and memories are made between children, teachers, and families. Here, you will see a place where familiar rituals are embraced and shared to create a warm and homely learning environment.

We have two rooms in our centre:

Our Mokomoko Room (3 months to 2 years): a small, warm room which caters for our smallest children, and their ages and stages of development.
Our Purerehua Room (2 years to 5 years): our preschool space which offers a dining room and art space, intimate play room and an ever-changing playground  to provide a fun and engaging learning environment.

We're looking for someone to bring their experience and passion for quality ECE to this Head Teacher role, taking pride in contributing to the professional reputation of the centre and creating a warm and welcoming environment for children and families. Working alongside the centre manager and with a fantastic group of teachers, you’ll support Assessment, Planning and Evaluation across both rooms so experience and strength in leading this would be a real advantage.  Experience with the Reggio Emilia project approach to learning would also align with our centre direction. With proven leadership and communication skills, you will also enjoy mentoring and growing your team.
We are committed to providing you with ongoing support to ensure you and your career are being well looked after. Teachers enjoy many benefits including: competitive salary, free medical insurance and uniforms, professional development, subsidised childcare and excellent career advancement opportunities.
