We are a family-owned and operated centre in the heart of Ohaupo, southern Hamilton.

Set in a rural community, we offer our children 'real-life' experiences and space to explore, with chickens, bees, veggie gardens, a centre cat and a big backyard.

We promote sustainability and growing kai from seed.

Children learn through hands-on, real-life experiences with real-life resources.

We foster independence, acceptance, resilience, curiosity and respect for ourselves, one another and our world.

We are seeking a qualified, fully registered (or provisionally registered) teacher who is friendly, fun, down to earth, patient, respectful, accepting and a real team player, to join our U2s room. 

We aim to operate at ratios of 1:3 in our infants room most of the time, with a maximum of 1:4.

There is a maximum of 12 children in this room, providing opportunities for strong, meaningful, respectful relationships built on trust.

Here are the reasons we are right for you! 

We offer:

  • The opportunity to be part of a team that will become your family
  • Competitive pay rate
  • Support and mentoring
  • Professional development and team building
  • Free uniform
  • Free childcare for your child
  • A variety of shifts
  • Paid meetings and PD
  • Weekly non-contact time of 2 hours
  • Regular walks/outings and strong relationships with the community and rest home
  • Play-based curriculum
  • Support to gain full registration.

If you want to be part of a team where you are recognised, appreciated and valued for your strengths and contributions and always supported to continue both your personal and professional growth, then Grasshoppers is the place for you!
