Wanted: Registered, motivated, energetic and passionate teacher to join our teaching team. Consideration will be given to provisionally registered teachers.

This diverse teaching environment requires the following abilities: you will need to be open, authentic, and understanding in order to connect with this truly special community. You will need the superpower of being able to transition from addressing the complex needs of infants, to toddlers, to preschoolers, and back again in the space of minutes . . . or maybe all at the same time! Versatility is the essence of this centre.  You will teach in a way that considers the holistic needs of each child and whanau. You of course will need to bring plenty of love to share around and be prepared to receive back in return.  

There is a panel of tiny judges waiting to be wowed and they deserve the best. The applicant will be part of a strong and supportive team; have strong kaupapa Māori knowledge; offer something new, interest us, teach us, and grow with us . . . no pressure!. Above all be prepared to laugh . . . a lot . . . even at yourself!

Does this sound like you?

Are you prepared to go above and beyond for our tamariki?

We are a mixed centre that caters for up to 50 tamariki (up to 20 U2’s), with a brand-new outdoor space that caters to all of our unique wonderfulness. We are looking at employing a kaiako to help us achieve outstanding learning outcomes for all tamariki.
