Songbird Early Childhood Centre is growing, and we are looking for a qualified and registered early childhood teacher to join our team.

Our small family-owned and operated centre is located in Aongatete, just south of Katikati, licensed for 25 children aged 2 to 5 years. Our inviting learning environment is a nurturing home away from home for our children.  There is plenty of outdoor space, trees to climb and bush to explore. At Songbird our teaching team, children and families feel valued and enjoy positive relationships with each other.

You will have the opportunity to work in a supportive team with great ratios, receive subsidised childcare, have some flexibility with hours, paid staff meetings, and professional development.

We are looking for:

  • A teacher who uses their initiative and can work within a shared leadership role
  • Someone that inspires a culture of kindness and respect
  • A teacher that is passionate about play, nature and our rural environment
  • Someone that has a great sense of humour and a positive outlook
  • A teacher who’s personal teaching values fit with our philosophy and values of Aroha – Love “Leading with love, teaching with heart”, Takaro – Play “We love puddles”, Whanaungatanga - Relationships “Relationships are at the heart of everything we do”.
