We are seeking an experienced Y0–2 teacher for free play based, child led learning in a democratic school, where children choose their own learning contexts and help to run their school. Learning largely emerges from play and curiosity; we also teach literacy and numeracy skills in small groups. Our learning culture is one of expectation and inclusion but not compulsion.

Classes often contain a range of ages and they occur both inside and outside. Timatanga is a full primary of 28 students with a teaching principal and two staff supported by daily whanau involvement.

 We are seeking the right person to teach:

  • Y0–2 literacy and numeracy in both skills groups and integrated curriculum (mornings)
  • Y0–2 Te Whāriki curriculum
  • Y1–8 supporting play, provocations and child led learning, and sharing what you are into (afternoons).

Experience sought: Playcentre or similar play and provocation based learning a must. Hand-making, early literacy, music, outdoor experiential education, te reo, experience of Te Whāriki, preferred.

Qualities sought: Emotional intelligence, the ability to be self-reflective and collaborative; the ability to teach responsively and to learn from, and with, your students, creative, passionately interested in teaching practice as an inquiry into the nature of true learning.

Start term 1, 2021.
