Our centre manager is having a baby, therefore we have an exciting opportunity for an experienced centre manager to join our team. 

About us:

Our centre is privately owned. We provide access to high-quality professional development, mentoring and leadership opportunities and ongoing professional support to maintain quality teaching practice. 

Our centre caters for children 0–6 years-old and operates an U2s and O2s area.

Our guiding principles of our philosophy include:

MŌHIOTANGA - Knowledge

MANAAKITANGA - Caring and supporting

WHANAUNGATANGA - Belonging and connection

TINO RANGATIRATANGA - Independence and autonomy. 

Teachers individualise centre routines to respond personally to each child on the basis of information shared with parents. Transitions into the older children’s area are well-planned in partnership with whānau.

Tamariki are involved in planning excursions that follow their interests and enable them to explore the many natural gifts our local environment has to offer.
