Are you currently relieving, but would like some support and mentoring for re-certification?

Are you looking at re-entering the workforce after time away?

Are you looking for a change but don’t want to commit to anywhere new until you have given it a try?

We are looking for an experienced ECE teacher to cover some maternity leave for around 12 months. We would prefer full-time, but job sharing is a possibility also.

Our dedicated team need maternity cover for 2 certified teachers over the rest of this year and into 2022. We are locally owned and operated with great ratios and a wonderful reputation within our Avonhead community.

This position will suit you if you: teach from the heart, are a team player, understand and practice intentional teaching and the project approach, have a firm theoretical grounding in Te Whāriki and value exploring the outside community with our tamariki. Your professional experience will have given you a special understanding of how to work closely with parents and whānau, as well as having a strong knowledge and understanding of the programme and assessment process.

In return for your commitment and contribution we can offer you a place in our fun-loving, vibrant, tight-knit team, great leadership support, professional development, mentoring and payment for certification, first aid and a uniform. We will also support you to to journey through our Professional Growth Cycle.

We are also looking for experienced unqualified relievers.

Please email for more information, and/or to arrange to visit us for a ‘play’ so you can see how you might fit within our community.
