Mangere Bridge Kindergarten is currently looking for a head teacher to join and lead our dedicated team, and help us contribute to the high level of service that we are proud to provide our local community. If you are a registered and fully certificated ECE teacher, and experienced ECE head teacher with proven leadership experience, this is a fantastic opportunity to be part of the “magic” that is the AKA!  

You enjoy being a great example to your team as an exceptional leader, through your open communication style, collaborative approach and focus on strengthening relationships. Balancing professional leadership with management of the day-to-day kindergarten operations and teaching duties means variety and intrinsic reward.

You will also:

  • Have 5+ years’ experience in an ECE environment, and hold a current practicing certificate (experience working in a multicultural community would be advantageous)
  • Have demonstrable skills in relationship building
  • Display a firm-but-fair approach to leading a team, where collaboration and development is key
  • Share the organisation’s commitment to the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi, informing and leading bicultural practice
  • Share our kindergarten’s philosophy of care and respect for the natural environment and sustainability
  • Value the use of ICT as a teaching tool
  • Have demonstrable analytical skills and financial acumen
  • Have a strong focus on inclusiveness, recognising and valuing the rich diversity of the tamariki, whānau and local community
  • Enjoy working directly with our tamariki and getting your hands dirty.
