We are Reggio Emilia-inspired community-based centre with an extensive natural outdoor environment and are seeking an ECE qualified and registered teacher to join us in our O2 section.

We provide excellent working conditions for our teachers and generous amounts of teacher release time. We have small centre sizes and low ratios to enable quality relationships. We provide an employment package that includes 10 days' sick leave and substantial professional development leave. We will consider those in their third year of training, and we provide a mentoring support programme for PRTs.

We are based within a semirural environment that offers amazing opportunities for outdoor exploration and local walks within the community. We pride ourselves on our stimulating environments, implementation of a quality curriculum that embraces and reflects our bicultural practice, and the relationships formed with our children and families who are at the heart of the centre vision.

  • Are you a warm, compassionate, dynamic teacher who values open communication, is motivated and enjoys working collaboratively with teachers, parents and whānau?
  • Are you excited about building relationships, viewing your role as critical in enabling the educational achievement and wellbeing of our learners?
  • Are you passionate about the outdoors, believing in the value of all-weather play and have an understanding and acceptance of your own comfort levels in trusting tamariki as capable and competent, so you can fully support them to explore their own limits through courageous play?
  • Are you passionate about growing your practice through continuous professional learning and practice?
  • Are you willing to become part of a centre transforming itself into the Reggio Emilia philosophy?
  • Do you hold a New Zealand accredited ECE teacher qualification?
