Infant and toddlers teacher
We are looking for either a qualified teacher or a student in their final year of study, to fill a full-time role within our team – new graduates welcome! We are committed to finding the right person for our centre and we are happy to wait.
We are a small, privately owned centre with an ECE qualified owner, located in an old villa in the heart of Merivale! Our nursery and preschool are licensed for a small number of children, with a maximum centre-wide roll of 48 children. You’ll join our team of fun, caring, creative and passionate teachers.
This role is for an U3s teacher – with a variety of work across the centre depending on your experience and preference.
Relationship building is the most important quality we look for in our teachers and you will need to be passionate, empathetic and possess a readiness to learn. Ideally you have a good understanding of children’s individual learning needs, assessment practices and the ability to connect well with parents/whānau and other teachers. A great sense of humour, as well as a belief in your ability to positively influence the lives of children and families are a must!
Our philosophy is based around active movement, respect, fun, love of learning and relationships. We provide caring, responsive relationships and engaging activities that cater to the individual needs of children and their whānau. Check out our centre Facebook page (Fundamentals Preschool and Nursery Merivale) for a snapshot of our daily activities.
