Our boutique, 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. 

With one of our teachers on maternity leave, an opportunity has come up to join our team on a fixed-term contract. This position will be based primarily in our baby/toddler room, but you would also get to spend some time with our preschoolers. 

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:

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

We offer competitive remuneration, and a supportive workplace environment. 

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

If this sounds like the career move for you, get in touch now to arrange a visit and find out more about joining the whānau.
