Our boutique, family-owned, nature-based centre in Birkenhead provides specialised care and education for 30 tamariki aged from 0–5 years.

Our centre is made up of 2 separate learning spaces, one for U2s and the other for our preschoolers. We also have a large shared outdoor space where we all explore together. 

Due to one of our teachers relocating at the end of April, an opportunity has come up to join our team. This position will be based in the preschool room.  

What’s different about our centre?

  • Small numbers: our small numbers and good ratios allow us to create deep-rooted relationships with our tamariki and their whānau
  • Home away from home: we offer a home-like, relaxed environment, intertwining the Reggio Emilia philosophy with Te Whāriki. We focus on creating calm days for our tamariki to explore their interests and develop and learn alongside our kaiako
  • Beautiful natural setting: surrounded by native bush, our spectacular backyard has plenty of room for exploration, outdoor learning and fun!
  • New ownership: new owners who are passionate about supporting the staff to ensure their ideas come to life.

Our ideal candidate:

  • Has a passion for the outdoors, and will encourage our tamariki to explore their natural environment
  • Wants to work in an environment where they can really make an impact
  • Is enthusiastic, nurturing, and fun
  • Is qualified and registered. 

What we offer:

  • Competitive remuneration – including a sign on bonus (equivalent to 1 week’s wages)
  • Paid teacher registration and first aid course fees and renewal
  • Regular professional development and mentoring
  • 50% off childcare fees
  • A supportive, welcoming team and owner, who are always open to new ideas. 

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
