We believe children will have a true appreciation of nature if they have exposure to it from a young age. We therefore take our children on excursions to our local park 3 days a week on our Forest Kindy programme.
We are currently looking for a qualified teacher to join our energetic and busy preschool room. With a strong outdoor focus and a curriculum based on Montessori and Reggio philosophies we provide a unique learning environment for our children.
We have open-ended resources available at all times and encourage freedom to express creativity.
We are lucky to be culturally diverse and this means we celebrate a range of events throughout the year including Matariki, Eid, Chinese New Year and Queen's Birthday!
Our ideal teacher will have an eye for nature and will be passionate about the learning in the environment. Experience in outdoor excursions will be beneficial but not essential, as is exposure to a Montessori or Reggio Emilia environment.
We offer benefits galore:
Onsite car parking and a bus stop outside the centre
Fully subsidised healthcare
Competitive pay rate
Team building and appreciation events.
This is a fantastic centre to develop your own practice with a team who enjoy sharing their knowledge and expertise with others. BestStart offers fantastic opportunities for professional growth and future career options, including day-to-day mentoring from a hands on centre manager.
Talk to our team and they will tell you our biggest benefit is the support network we provide. You will have a professional services manager to provide support relating to your curriculum and teaching practice, along with access to incredible training opportunities provided by our learning and development team.
Come and join our happy, motivated and inspiring team today!
