We have an exciting opportunity for a qualified teacher to join our amazing team!

The children are at the heart of our centre and community. We are guided by the principle whānaungatanga which for us means an open door policy that allows for strong reciprocal relationships with parents, whānau and the wider community leading to partnership in learning. We offer a stimulating natural environment including venturing out to explore and learn about our own communities natural environment. We empower our children by fostering independence that leads to a sense of achievement and well-being (whakamana).

Our available opportunity is working with our 2–3½-year-olds in the Paihamu Room (preschool). This is where our tamariki begin to build their independence and social skills while taking risks and undertaking projects that reflect their individual interests. 

This is a permanent full-time position working 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday.
