We have created an environment that is calm and unhurried, with flexible learning spaces and a wide range of resources. We encourage curiosity, inquiry and exploration both inside and outside the centre. Teachers and children are partners in learning.

As teachers, we promote children's sense of belonging, security and wellbeing and we are looking for a qualified/certified head teacher to join our dedicated, fun team, working in our preschool room.

  • Exposure and development in ECE management for your next step up
  • Subsidised childcare (50% in your first 12 months, 75% after 12 months).

To be successful in this role, you will have:

  • A NZ recognised ECE teacher qualification and be certified as ECE educator in New Zealand
