We are an association of 5 purpose-built centres on the University campus. Due to us improving our ratio for children O2 we have a permanent 33½ hour a week position for a teacher/kaiako. College is one of our mixed-age centres with a maximum of 32 children, including 10 U2.

The position is predominantly working with children O2 however being a truly mixed-age centre means we recognise the value of akō and therefore tuakana-teina is valued and supported.

College, like all of our centres offers ratios of 1–4 and 1–8 in a diverse, predominantly university community. We are looking for a qualified and registered ECE teacher whose commitment to high-quality teaching is evident in their practice.

We’re looking for a team member who is an enthusiastic participant in teaching and learning, has evidence of being an active reflective practitioner, is able to establish respectful and supportive relationships with diverse whānau, children and teachers, has strengths in te reo and tikanga Māori and has a philosophical commitment to mixed-age teaching.
