Welcome to Whitianga, the heart of Mercury Bay!

An attractive township with a deep-water harbour, Whitianga is a place where you can do a little or a lot – the pace of life can be as busy or as calm as you choose. 

We are looking for a passionate, inspiring and motivating centre manager.

The position involves supporting, teaching and leading the team, communicating with families and ensuring that the centre operates as a high-performing centre based on quality and genuine interactions between staff, children and family. 

Our teachers all have a genuine passion for teaching and ensure that our Te Ao Māori approach provides meaningful learning experiences for the children in our care. We are proud of our relationships with our children and whānau as we value our diverse cultures within our local and wider community.

Our centre environment is regarded as the ‘third teacher’ to evoke curiosity, and support learning through careful attention to aesthetics and creative spaces. Our outdoor area encourages children to take safe risks and grow socially competent.

As the manager, you will role model excellent leadership qualities, inspiring and motivating others to do the same. Alongside this, you'll be responsible for meeting administrative expectations, compliance requirements and striving to achieve financial performance targets.

We are a privately family owned early childhood centre.

In turn we will value and support you to do your job well. Your efforts will be rewarded through a competitive salary and flexible working hours. Teacher registration and first aid are paid in full and a budget is provided for professional development.

If you are looking for a change or feel it's time for the next step in your career, please apply.

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
