Are you an experienced kaiako looking for a new beginning in 2020?

We are growing from strength to strength and due to continued roll growth we are once again looking for a passionate early childhood teacher to join our friendly team.

We are a boutique centre located in Opawa and have an opportunity for a dedicated teacher to join us whose passion and enthusiasm will provide creative learning experiences for our tamariki. We are looking for that special someone who is organised, takes the initiative and has a can-do attitude, but who also loves spontaneity and fun.

Do you have:

  • Diploma or Bachelor of Teaching ECE or primary with full or provisional registration
  • Current first aid certificate
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • An indepth knowledge of Te Whāriki, curriculum planning and internal evaluations
  • A personality that can build strong and harmonious relationships with staff, parents and whānau. 

We want you to feel valued for your commitment and dedication and offer:

  • Paid teacher registration and first aid
  • Regular non-contact time
  • Support and mentoring for teachers
  • Play-based curriculum
  • Discounted childcare
  • A beautiful modern, purpose-built working environment which includes a large staffroom (with a sunny balcony and coffee machine), separate non-contact room, and free parking.

We have great connections with our local community and ensure our children are exposed to life out of the centre. We are in a location that is brilliant for our teachers and children to get out and about in our community.

We welcome you to apply and be a part of our team. Our beautiful centre could be your new home.
