Early childhood teacher, team leader
We have a full-time team leader position available for a qualified and registered ECE teacher for our toddler room.
We are a beautiful rural centre in Warkworth (50 minutes’ drive north of Auckland City) where the wild woods grow, orchards bloom and chickens roam.
The successful applicant must have experience in inclusive leadership and be genuinely committed to Nature’s Nest, to early childhood, to children and to our families.
Team leaders are a key part of our team...they role model quality practice, mentor, inspire and guide teachers and support our centre manager with centre projects and curriculum.
You must be willing to take risks, be a leader and be willing to be led. Be gentle, kind and resilient, flexible and understanding. You must be willing to implement initiative, to be true to our philosophy and strong enough to guide a team to be true to it also.
You must highly value natural environments and be inspired, as part of our team, to make a difference to our living world.
We want someone who loves gardening, their feet in the earth, rain on their face….. and going on adventures to our very own ‘wild woods’ outdoor classroom
We recognise the importance of a secure emotional environment with responsive adults who are in tune with the needs and wants of each child; therefore we strive to maintain a peaceful and unhurried environment where daily routines and rituals are relaxed and flexible.
