Our inspirational centre manager is off to start her own family, so we are looking for an amazing ECE leader to support the centre during her maternity leave. As our new head teacher you will train alongside our experienced centre manager before stepping into her role during her maternity leave (fixed-term for 1 year). 

This newly renovated centre is focused on their local curriculum of sustainability and the environment and is set in a gorgeous coastal community. This is an awesome opportunity for someone who is ready to shine and take their ECE leadership career to the next level. 
We are part of a small community in Beachlands which means local beach excursions are only a hop, skip and a jump away! We place a strong emphasis on partnerships with each other, our parents and whānau and supporting our tamariki to become valued members of society.

This position involves supporting and leading the team, communicating with families, and ensuring that our centre operates as a high-performing centre based on quality and genuine interactions between staff, tamariki and whānau. 
Our ideal candidate will have:

  • A passion for building meaningful relationships with tamariki and their families
  • A strong team spirit who values the importance of all in the centre
  • A strong belief in supporting staff moral and a positive, solution-based outlook
  • A strong understanding of pedagogical strategies, to be a fountain of knowledge to others
  • An ability to set a 'big picture' direction, while making sure the day to day details are attended to
  • Sound business and finance acumen
  • Bachelor/ Diploma of Education Teaching Level 7 (ECE) and current certification.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our teachers, offering ongoing professional development, a competitive wage which includes discounted childcare, free healthcare insurance, paid staff meetings as well as further opportunities to grow your career.
