Karamea Area School is looking for a motivated, inspired educator who has an interest in play based learning to provide a nurturing environment for our Y0–2 children.

Our ideal candidate would have some knowledge of ‘Reggio Emilia’ philosophy, setting up areas of play, provocations, and an understanding of the play schemas. The right candidate needs to be able to allow children to explore, imagine, create and thrive in our soon to be, purpose built, new modern learning space.

We need an educator who will work in harmony with whanau to reinforce family values and maintain/build a warm and trusting environment for everyone involved. We need someone who can deliver a diverse programme by using open-ended play and art experiences to enable the children to make their own choices around learning centres, in and outside of their classroom.

Experience is desirable but ultimately the successful candidate will have opportunities for professional development to upskill.

The successful candidate has the option of a school house if needed, to teach with small class numbers, and the opportunity of teaching in a brand new school in 2022 with autonomy to build a space. We seek a primary teacher who sees this type of professional lifestyle as exciting and rewarding and who will be committed to us. In return we will also be committed to you and offer you an amazing opportunity to be the very best teacher and leader you can be.

You may qualify for removal expenses.
