Early childhood teacher
We are a purpose-built centre, 100% passionate about tamariki learning and growth, situated in Papanui.
We are licensed for 75 tamariki. We offer small Kaiako to tamariki ratios and we believe that this supports our passions for the care of tamariki and their individual needs.
We offer a structured Montessori curriculum in a prepared environment with freedom of choice for tamariki.
We are currently looking for a teacher to join us in the new year who can work a minimum of 30 hours+ a week in our Kahikatea room (age 3½ to 6 years). Be able to work flexible hours and attend staff meetings twice a month.
We are looking for someone who is either Montessori trained or has experience in a Montessori centre. But we are also looking at Kaiako who have an interest in the Montessori curriculum, its philosophy and its approach to learning.
Be motivated, passionate about teaching and learning and a willingness to learn from both your team and our tamariki. Most importantly, you must be a team player and want to have fun while working with all our amazing tamariki and teaching team.
A minimum of a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and current registration with a practising certificate is required for this position. Provisional, full or subject to confirmation.
Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a working visa.
