We provide an all-day care service for children from 3 months up to school age. The centre is located in the Frankton suburb of Hamilton in a building modified with 3 large inside areas attached to outside areas. We have a large group of Māori and Pacific children. The centre is licensed under the umbrella of BestStart for 80 children with the opening hours 7.15am–5.45pm Monday to Friday.

As an effective head teacher, you will need to have the ability to build relationships with staff, whānau and the community.

Our ideal candidate will be able:

  • To demonstrate and promote high-quality and effective teaching
  • Have the ability to coach and mentor a team through to achieve the centre's strategic plan
  • To drive the delivery of high-quality education and care
  • To ensure compliance standards are exceeded
  • To be proficient with centre documentation and self-review.

You will need to be highly organised to manage both the teaching and leadership components of the role. Ability to motivate a team is essential and a passion for bicultural curriculum would be an advantage.

Of course, you must be fully certified and registered in ECE and hold a current first aid certificate. Previous management experience is preferred.

In return, we will provide you with a new challenge where you can really make a difference in the lives of our tamariki and see your achievements. Our support will assist your leadership journey and our growth opportunities will help you achieve your career goals.
