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, in Beckenham, is a natural play garden with fruit trees, vegetable gardens and large trees providing natural shade.

We require a professional, nurturing teacher, with skills to work collaboratively and be an excellent role model. The position is for 19.75 hours over 3 days, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, with the option of relief teaching on Mondays and Tuesdays by negotiation. There is also a paid 2-hour staff meeting fortnightly. We have excellent teacher:child ratios, and work with 33 children aged 2 to 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 inquiry learning, intentional teaching, and individual learning programmes would be an asset. 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 not necessary, but 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 will be as soon as successful candidate is available.
