We are looking for someone who knows how to have fun! Who knows how to get down and play and believes they are a true resource for a child's learning. The environment is seen as our third teacher – this closely links in with our philosophy so we would love you to have an understanding of this. 

Our centre treats each of our children as the individual they are. We nurture our children's curiosity, their confidence and sense of belonging. The culture at our centre is very warm and supportive, and we are looking for another team member who values these qualities in a team as well. Relationships are at the core of what we do. Whānau plays an important part of our children's learning journey, teachers working with families to ensure that culture is maintained, encouraged and shared.
