This is a rare opportunity to join the leadership team within Bear Park Remuera. This role would ideally suit an experienced leader looking for a new challenge within a very professional and innovative environment, or an experienced registered teacher with a thorough understanding of the values and practices of Reggio Emilia who is looking for their first step into a leadership role.

As the room co-ordinator of our Tui Room (3½–5-year olds) you will have daily support from a proactive and experienced senior leadership team who truly believe in maintaining an authentically collaborative environment.

Within our thoughtfully designed, purpose-built centre you will work within an environment that offers separate atelier spaces, a performing arts room, designated sleep mezzanines and a separate dining space, all of which create an environment that is supportive and conducive to meaningful learning opportunities for children and teachers.

We are committed to offering a high quality learning and working environment for both children and teachers, ensuring you have the resources and materials needed to implement a purposeful and intentional learning programme.

Working alongside an Atelierista and pedagogical mentor, you will have ample opportunity to extend your own professional knowledge and practice within a strongly Reggio inspired setting.

As the co-ordinator, you will be the first point of contact for teachers and families of your room, including daily communication and guidance. You will work closely with our centre director and pedagogical team to co-ordinate the daily programme, creating inspiring learning environments and documentation.

With inspiration from Reggio Emilia, our teachers have a passion for inspiring wonder, creativity, imagination and investigation, fostering children's hundred languages and unravelling their theories alongside them.

  • Ratios 1:6 / 1:7 preschool
  • 3 hours paid weekly team planning time + an extra 3 hours p/fortn non-contact time
  • Regular paid PD
  • Experienced mentors
