We are a small family owned, well-respected childcare centre located in the heart of Ponsonby. We are dedicated to providing quality childcare, within a nurturing and homely environment.  In our last ERO report, we were very well placed to promote positive learning outcomes for children.

We are an unusual centre and we practise continuity of care, so you would be willing to work with all age groups, and willing to begin a cycle with infants or older children.

You would be:

  • An ECE qualified teacher
  • Have a provisional or full teaching certificate
  • Have some experience of teaching
  • Have a good understanding of what healthy attachment relationships looks like.

Are you interested in the works of Magda Gerber and Emmi Pikler? Are you keen to put this into practice in a centre fully committed to RIE© and Magda Gerber's Educaring© approach? Our commitment to RIE is evident in the mentoring approach used in daily practice with teachers, and the value we place on key caregiving, small group sizes and excellent ratios and continuity of care for children where possible.

What's great about our centre: 

  • Competitive salary (we recently reviewed this to make sure we are competitive)
  • Subsidised childcare for staff children
  • Health and wellbeing allowance ($500 a year for you to spend on what you think will support your health and wellbeing – e.g. the dentist, or a massage)
  • 2 extra days sick leave 
  • Long service benefit of extra leave (after 5 years, you get up to 20 extra hours leave, after 10 years you get an extra week)
  • Leadership opportunities if you want them
  • A friendly and welcoming team
  • A friendly and welcoming community
  • Good professional development opportunities (including but not limited to Magda Gerber's Educaring approach).

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