Are you interested in working for a community-based organisation that places children before profit?

We are like a richly resourced treasure tucked away in our local community. Our large centre is privileged to have a positive reputation, full rolls and an ever-growing waitlist.

After 6 years with us, our preschool team leader is leaving some big shoes to fill!

Do you:

  • Lead and teach from the heart?
  • Model respectful practices and value relationships?
  • Enjoy and grow professional collaboration amongst your team, with the ability to draw out individual strengths for the benefit of all?
  • Value reflective practice and professional discussion?
  • Foster a healthy culture for teachers and children to live and learn in?
  • Have strong and effective communication skills that build Whanaungatanga with a diverse learning community?
  • Have sound working knowledge around planning, assessment and evaluation?
  • Write high-quality authentic documentation that captures learning journeys?
  • Value and create beautiful learning spaces that foster ongoing inquiry and wonder for children?

We will offer you:

  • High-quality teaching and learning spaces with a very large natural outdoor environment
  • The leadership of a team of 7 passionate preschool teachers who keep children at the heart of what they do each day
  • 6 hours non-contact a week, 6 weeks' annual leave, a mid-year 2 day team development hui and other quality professional development opportunities
  • The opportunity to work alongside a supportive, experienced centre manager and additional team leader of our infants and toddlers.
