  • Our large natural outdoor learning environment in a relaxed, peaceful country setting
  • Our learning through play philosophy
  • Our commitment to the development and growth of our centre to ensure positive learning outcomes for amariki. 

We are unique, as it is a Community Governed and Managed Preschool which is a Not for Profit Organisation/ Charitable Trust.

Our centre follows the school term (40 weeks per year) and is open from 8.30am–3.15pm daily during those 40 weeks. 

This is a full-time salaried position.
