- Qualified and registered with the NZ Teaching Council (or in 3rd year of study).
We are looking for a teacher who is passionate about natural environments, who enjoys the great outdoors, understands the value of learning through play.
We are located on a 10-acre lifestyle block in Swanson, only 5 minutes from Henderson. We have been open since 1997 and cater for a mixed-age group of 36 children, 2–5-years-old.
Our teachers work a 40 hour week alternating between 8am–4.30pm, or 9am–5.30pm. We have scheduled weekly non-contact time in a separate teachers lounge and are paid for professional development, meetings, first aid and renewal of teaching practice certificates.
Be prepared to wear gumboots, play with mud, climb trees and generally enjoy natural experiential learning and teaching.
Our setting is very unique, allowing for the appreciation and care of our natural forest environment, hand-rearing and hands-on care of our farm pet animals – with the opportunity to learn about life cycles, active outdoor play and to experience the spacious country grounds.
