Are you a team leader, ready to take the next step?

We are seeking an assistant centre manager, who can uphold and support our commitment to the Treaty of Waitangi, Te Whāriki, and the Educare vision of Learn, Laugh, Play. This role is 40 hours per week.

So what makes us special?

  • Our children and families are supported by a team of highly qualified teachers who are passionate about providing quality care and education to our tamariki
  • Our centre environment is regarded as the ‘third teacher’ to evoke curiosity, and support learning through careful attention to aesthetics and creative spaces. Our comprehensive outdoor area encourages children to take safe risks and grow socially competent.

You will be responsible for supporting the centre manager in the day-to-day running of a 'Well Placed' centre, including centre enrolments, developing strong relationships with tamariki, whānau and the Whitby community, coaching and mentoring your team and ensuring our excellent standards of education and care are met.

As our assistant centre manager, you will need:

  • An ECE teaching qualification
  • Full NZ teacher registration
  • 2–3 years' leadership experience.

We are whānau-focused and pride ourselves on building strong whanaungatanga (relationships) based on trust, respect and open and honest communication.

We are passionate about actively supporting staff to continually grow, both personally and professionally. On top of our competitive salary package, we also offer ongoing subsidised professional development, payment support for teacher certification and 50% of childcare costs at any Educare centre.
