YMCA in Whanganui has a proud history of working with children, young people and families in our community for over 100 years. We have an opportunity for a qualified early childhood teacher to join our team in a leadership position and work with our youngest children and their families.

Our YMCA team has recently undergone some changes and we’re pleased to now offer the chance for a professional, motivated teacher to directly contribute to the growth and development of our centre.

In this position you will:

  • Use your leadership skills to lead and manage a small team of teachers
  • Develop your professional expertise by having responsibility for planning and implementing a curriculum-based programme
  • Work alongside other senior staff in the overall management of the centre.

Our ideal candidate will not only be ECE qualified, but will have experience in a senior teacher position and have proven skills in all aspects of high-quality programme delivery. A can-do, positive attitude is required.

YMCA Central is committed to child protection and the safeguarding of children and young people in our care and it is our expectation that all staff will operate in a way that reflects this intent. The successful applicant will need to return a satisfactory police record check before commencement of employment.

Applications close on Monday 24 June although we may interview suitable applicants before that day.
