When we have an amazing leadership opportunity within one of our centres we truly can't wait to share! Though it is tough on our teaching teams and children when a super valued and loved teacher ventures off elsewhere, we have to look on the bright side and in this case, we hope to meet you! 

Don't you love the 'aha!' moments when a child reaches their goal after persisting for a period of time? We definitely get the proud feels when we see this recognition – one of the many reasons we love ECE.  

Our team is extremely innovative and committed to developing their own teaching practices – got to love this! This year we are embedding our new philosophy within our centre, through our planning, environment and teaching practices. Our philosophy is based on relationships, communication and allowing children their own time to explore. Both teachers and whānau had equal contribution in creating this – so inclusive! 

What you'll need to succeed:

  • A qualified and registered ECE teacher who is caring, responsible, and has a natural knack for leading
  • Someone with a true passion for curriculum and preschool preparation
  • Sound knowledge of Te Whāriki and RIE/Pikler
  • Experience with internal evaluation preferred
  • Previous leadership experience considered an asset.

What we can offer you:

  • A beautiful spacious learning exclusive environment
  • A friendly and supportive team environment 
  • Subsidised childcare 
  • Support and mentorship for teacher registration
  • Ongoing opportunities for career growth and professional learning and development
  • Competitive remuneration and staff benefits.
