Are you looking to be valued? Want to be part of something special? We are searching for a new team member in our preschool room of 30 tamariki. We strive to enact our philosophy, which is born from relationships- equal partnerships between children, caregivers, whānau, community, and the environment. These relationships are established within a culture of kindness, through caregiving moments, rituals and our daily interactions. 

We are a privately owned centre in the grounds of North Shore Hospital, a community within the DHB for 60 children. We are passionate about the philosophies of Emmi Pikler, Reggio Emilia, and the Virtues Project.

The successful candidate will:

  • Has a passion for this unique age group
  • Role model our values within their practice
  • Be authentic, respectful and joyful
  • Have some working knowledge of the Reggio philosophy
  • Have the ability to make learning visible to all stakeholders
  • Be able to have open dialogue and collaborate with your team
  • Love to reflect, learn and collaborate- learning is a journey.

In return we offer:

  • Trust and kindness
  • A brilliant supportive management team
  • Lots of PLD and support in your learning journey
  • The opportunity to work in a truly collaborative team
  • The opportunity to work in a centre whose mission is to empower and inspire everyone to learn together
  • An environment that feels like a home-away-from-home and a centre that lives and breathes its philosophy.

We will continue to search until we find the right person, with the position becoming available in February when our teacher goes on maternity leave.

The right applicant must find delight in reflection, work collaboratively and value real connection.
