We are looking for another ECE teacher to join our team.

Our centre consists of a babies and toddlers centre and a preschool centre. The preschool centre operates 2 classrooms, 1 contains Montessori activities comprising literacy, numeracy and sensorial materials, while the other room has practical life activities consisting of cultural, cooking, care of the environment, art, science and music. This room also has a strong Reggio influence with ongoing project work woven into the programme. Preschool children are free to flow between the buildings and outside onto the patio. We have a large outside play area with artificial turf, lawn, raised gardens and 2 pet rabbits. We have regular walks to the nearby native bush of Dunedin’s Town Belt.

The ideal candidate will have the following attributes:

  • A professional attitude and a commitment to maintaining an organised, high-quality learning environment
  • Energy, initiative, enthusiasm and a genuine love of young children
  • A desire to connect children to nature as well as fostering their holistic development through the implementation of Te Whāriki and Montessori methods (Montessori qualification desirable but not required)
  • Great positive guidance skills, planning and assessment skills, creativity and flexibility
  • The ability to work alongside other teachers and contribute positively to the team.

Talk to us about our competitive salaries and how we can assist you in making the move to our well established Dunedin centre soon.
