'If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a Leader.' John Quincy Adams

We are looking for an inspiring leader, responsible for providing exceptional role modelling, who is a great organiser and who will bring along plenty of ideas which will maintain our welcoming and caring environment that our families just love.

Our preschool has an educational programme for children up to the age of six years based on the Montessori philosophy and the national early childhood curriculum, Te Whāriki. Teaching and learning all happen in our friendly home-away-from-home environment where our well-established, professional teachers deliver the curriculum with passion, flair and creativity. With a focus on freedom to play, our daily routines support and encourage our children to develop independent decision-making skills.

Your role will be to ensure that the team continue to deliver exceptional learning opportunities through inspirational planning and curriculum delivery, and where the outcomes will be captured, documented and shared with parents and whānau. An interest in supporting the development of newly registered teachers and promoting the growth of our more experienced team would be highly desirable and we are excited to hear from an individual who is keen to bring their own influence to an already thriving environment.

This role would suit an individual with either an interest in the Montessori philosophy or with a Montessori background.

In return for your commitment we offer you a great package which, along with a competitive pay rate, performance-related bonus and additional benefits, also includes operational and mentoring support from our highly qualified support team.

Our preschool and nursery is part of the Provincial Education Group.
