'(The teacher) will be able to say: 'I have served the spirits of those children, and they have fulfilled their development, and I kept them company in their experiences.' (Dr Maria Montessori, 'The Absorbent Mind')

What can we offer you:  We are a purpose-built, community-based Montessori school with four casa classrooms and a beautiful outdoor environment and programme. Ours is a strong Montessori community linked to a nearby Montessori primary unit (which is part of a local state school).  Our classrooms are all well-resourced and stocked.  Each casa class is led by a Montessori-trained teacher and supported by 1–2 teachers.

Our school has a strong focus on professional development and a commitment to continuous improvement.

Are you looking to teach in an environment with a commitment to Montessori principles?  Do you believe in the importance of both peace and environmental education?  If you see your role as a facilitator – introducing the world and its wonder to the children, nurturing within them a love of learning and a sense of themselves as capable, confident and independent then we would love to talk to you.

What we are looking for: 

A passionate Montessori teacher with good leadership, communication and team skills for either our indoor or outdoor environment. (We have a degree of flexibility with where we place this teacher). New Zealand teacher certification and AMI training preferred. Only applicants with a face-to-face Montessori training will be considered. 

This position is available from term 2 (May) with some degree of flexibility.
