The Otago University Childcare Association is an association of five purpose built centres on the University campus. Te Uru is one of four separate centres that make up Te Pā.  It's one of our centres for children over two years of age. We operate with a maximum of approximately 40 children in Te Uru with 100% qualified registered teachers who provide ratios of 1 to 8.  This position is for 28 hours a week over 4 days.  The successful applicant will become a part of a diverse, collaborative team that are passionate about children's learning.

Te Uru, like all of our centres is part of a diverse, predominantly University community.  We make the most of getting to know our rich local learning environment, the bush, botanical gardens, museum and University.  We are looking for a qualified and registered ECE teacher whose commitment to high quality teaching is evident in their practice.

We’re looking for a team member who is an enthusiastic participant in teaching and learning, has evidence of being an active reflective practitioner, is able to establish respectful and supportive relationships with diverse whānau, children and teachers, has strengths in te reo and tikanga Māori. We welcome applications from new graduates. We offer mentoring for registration, extensive collegial and professional support and a fantastic work environment.  Teaching in a large association also allows for long term professional growth as there is an opportunity over time to teach in a variety of centres, all of which offer different education settings and environments.  ECECA terms and conditions (see NZEI website for more info).
