We have a unique opportunity available for a passionate, heart-led head teacher to join our dedicated team of kaiako.

We are a small independently owned preschool located in central Mt Maunganui. This is your chance to make your mark and be involved in something truly special – we have an active, supportive learning community, and we are uniquely positioned adjacent to the local primary school. This provides us with amazing opportunities to support our tamariki in their learning pathways.

Our philosophy is anchored on relationships and creating a home-away-from-home for our learners and kaiako alike. Loose parts play, place-based education, rituals and small group work form the cornerstones of our daily practice.

We are looking for a head teacher who shares our team commitment to being prepared for our learners in the head, hand and heart. Our preferred candidate will embrace the values and vision that we hold for our community of learners, someone who can hit the ground running. Excellent curriculum, planning and assessment knowledge, a thorough working knowledge of the ECE licensing criteria and regulations, experience in leading internal evaluation and an indepth knowledge of the Teaching Council Code and Standards is a must. As a pedagogical leader within our learning community you must also have the confidence and passion to take a lead role in these areas.

Are you...

  • An ECE qualified teacher with full or provisional teacher certification?

Do you...

  • Have an absolute passion for teaching and love for children?
  • Have experience of, and a passion for coaching and supporting a teaching team?
  • Have a sense of fun and wonder?

If this sounds like the sort of environment that you would like to teach and learn within, we would love to hear from you. We offer a fun, supportive teaching and learning environment with great remuneration and benefits!
