Our children need a hand to hold as they discover the wonder and beauty of the world.

We are looking for a full-time experienced centre manager at our Te Awamutu Centre who is just as curious and eager to learn as our tamariki are.

Who we are: 

Creators Educational Trust is made of a kind-hearted bunch who care an awful lot about our future. Our children have ideas and voices and through our curriculum we work hand-in-hand to shape a world we’d all love to live in, founded on the values of aroha and manaakitanga.

We believe in:

  • Love and connection
  • The Reggio Emilia Approach
  • Nature play
  • Value-based learning.

What you can expect:

Our centre is a licensed early learning centre for 40 children.

As centre manager you’ll be inspiring our team to create a culture of:

  • Research and discovery
  • Liaising with local social agencies
  • Working alongside whānau and the wider community
  • Contributing to the centre’s internal evaluation and strategic direction
  • Being the first to celebrate the individuality and potential of every child
  • Have at least 3 years centre management experience.

Our Waipa centre features innovative design which encourages beautiful interactions, with relationships being at the heart. Our inquiry-based curriculum is founded on Christian ethos and values and is strongly inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. We believe in celebrating the beauty and individuality of tamariki and their whānau. Our kaiako are passionate about creating a culture of innovative learning which is represented in our beautiful and inspiring learning environments. Our kaiako understand children are born capable, competent and strong and this is reflected in everything we do at Creators Waipa.

Why you should apply:

  • Great administrative support
  • Fantastic team culture
  • Freedom and support to bring your authentic self
  • Daily opportunities to build the future on respect.

How to apply

Interested? Send us your CV and cover letter outlining why you’re the person for the role. Please also include your relevant management experience, personal goals and values, and any familiarity with Reggio Emilia.
