Are you an experienced ECE teacher looking for a new leadership opportunity? We are looking for a dedicated, energetic and nurturing registered teacher to join our team as our new centre manager/head teacher.

We are no ordinary childcare centre; we are a spacious, purpose-built semirural preschool nestled in the heart of Tauwhare, right next to Tauwhare School. Being included in the wider school community is a wonderful part of our preschool. The successful applicant will love being part of a small community and working closely with them. We have an educational programme that is unique, innovative and holistic focusing on our children’s strengths and interests and encouraging their enthusiasm for learning.  

As our centre manager/head teacher, you will be responsible for the full cycle of business operations (including but not limited to administration, staff recruitment and management, marketing and enrolments, resourcing, financial management, compliance, programme planning and assessment and policies and procedures) ensuring the centre provides exceptional care to the children, and supporting and growing the team of wonderful educators while working closely with the Board of Trustees overseeing the preschool. 

You must also have strong written and verbal communication skills and will use your expertise and knowledge to lead the team with planning and internal evaluation. You will be confident in your ability to work alongside others in the day-to-day running of the centre.

As a valued member of our centre, we can offer you a great benefits package including:

  • Competitive remuneration
  • Subsidised childcare (if required) 
  • Reimbursement for teacher registration costs
  • A robust induction programme with regular and ongoing mentoring and professional development
  • The opportunity to work alongside a committed and dedicated team.

If this wonderful opportunity sounds like you, don’t hesitate, apply now!
