Due to one of our kaiako relocating an opportunity has become available for an exceptional teacher to join our fabulous team. 

Are you a fun, dynamic team player who is able to adapt their teaching to cater for the needs of all tamariki?

We have been providing quality care and education for children and families since July 2003. We now have 3 community-based preschools located on the east side of Christchurch.

Two of our 3 services recently received a Very Well Placed report from ERO. The third centre has only been open for 19 months and received a Well Placed report. 

Communication and positive contributions to team work are something we value, as well as supporting and growing our teachers to maximise their potential.

We are looking for someone to join our fantastic team of kaiako at our Merrington Crescent centre. This is a mixed-age centre, with a licence of 28 (6 U2s and 22 O2s).

We are looking for a confident and caring teacher, who is passionate about the local community. A dynamic teacher who can adapt their practice to cater for the care and education of children aged 0–5 years. Someone who has sound knowledge of planning and assessment; who is eager and able to contribute to the team in all aspects of the programme including internal evaluation. 

If this sounds like you and you'd like to join our innovative team, please contact us today.

Visit our website if you want to see more about our centres. 

Please only apply if you have a teaching qualification in early childhood and have a practising certificate (provisional or full).
