Looking to extend your intentional teaching practices? Fascinated by Reggio-inspired child-lead investigations, exploring nature and art? We have an open mind for this role. You could be just starting out, or very experienced, or anywhere in between. What matters most is your passion and enthusiasm for working at Daisies.

Daisies has a strong focus on learning for all, including our kaiako. Three times each year we run in-house wananga lead by our directors, head teachers, education leaders and external experts. Our team has a good mix of teachers who all bring ideas and passion to our teaching and learning environment.

We are looking for a kaiako for "Te Pihinga" house.  Te Pihinga means a young plant, and our tamariki range in age from around 3 to 5 years. Most children at Te Pihinga are initially enrolled next door at Te Purapura and transition across to Te Pihinga sometime before their third birthday. So if you have a passion for teaching older toddlers who are blossoming into pre-schoolers then this is the role for you. 

Daisies was created 13 years ago with a vision of intentionally applying best practice in ECE – drawn from research and observations from Dr Anne Meade and Rachel Denee, our lead pedagogistas - and inspiring others to do the same.  In 2019 we opened our second centre which enabled us to create two distinctive houses with a stronger focus on each age-group.  There remains significant interaction between the houses, with a number of teachers having worked in both.  We are active participants in the Reggio Emilia Aotearoa community of practice, and we also have a strong interest in RIE/Pikler philosophies.
