We are, proudly, a Green Gold status Enviroschool, with a dedication to all things sustainable, and we need another like minded, passionate teacher to join our highly skilled team. Our learning environment involves a natural play garden with vegetable gardens and large trees providing natural shade. This is a privately-owned centre operating in Christchurch since 1991.

We require a professional, nurturing teacher, with skills to work collaboratively and be an excellent role model. The position is for 32½ hours over 4 days, Monday to Thursday, with a high likelihood of relief teaching on Fridays if required. There is also a paid 2 hour staff meeting fortnightly. We have excellent teacher:child ratios, and work with 33 children aged 2–5 years.

A strong understanding of ways to foster learning in all children is vital as is a sound knowledge of Te Whāriki. Experience with internal evaluation, inquiry learning, intentional teaching, and individual learning programmes is necessary. You would need to have strength in the documentation of our children's learning, and be articulate and organised. Experience with Educa and Appraisal Connector is an advantage.

Above all we need a passionate individual with a genuine understanding of the capabilities of our young children, an ability to foster and grow a love of learning within a caring environment, and develop excellent professional relationships with our parents. Our teaching team are welcoming, experienced and very supportive, and we celebrate and nurture each teacher's diverse talents.

The start date is early February.

Applicants need to hold a current NZ teacher's practising certificate and have an appropriate ECE qualification.
