Great things are happening! If you are looking for a well-functioning, quality-driven, passionate and super-friendly team – we might be just the centre for you!

We are looking for a head teacher (of a 3–4-year-old classroom) who loves what they do and chooses to make a difference every day for the children around them. We are looking for someone who wants to continue to grow and be supported to develop their own teaching practice.

What we can offer:

  • Great working spaces
  • Well-resourced classrooms
  • Amazing vibrant children
  • Wonderful teachers
  • Teacher certification support and mentoring

Ideally this is a position for someone who loves engaging and extending children through play, and providing intentional learning opportunities. You will need knowledge in planning and assessment and implementing creative ways of encouraging learning within the Te Whāriki curriculum.

You'll be flexible, organised and committed to working collaboratively with a team. An ability to build strong relationships will be among your key strengths, as well as a sense of humour and high levels of initiative and professionalism.

As a strong communicator, you will lead the team. Applicants must have a BED/Dip Tch (ECE) level qualification and current teacher registration.

As a BestStart employee you will receive a competitive wage, as well as 2 hours minimum of non-contact time per week, paid staff meetings, childcare discounts, extra sick days, healthcare insurance, training incentives and more.
