A New Shoots centre director is someone who leads from the heart, someone with a true passion for their centre and its people, someone who has their children in every thought and decision made. 

We are currently seeking their new centre director to lead with love and strength. Found on the main road into town, our eye-catching early childhood centre is easy to spot and access for many Bay of Island families. Our architecturally-designed centre reflects the local culture and blurs the boundaries between indoors and out. Taking advantage of the winterless North’s climate, our spacious outdoor area gives children endless hours to discover nature, challenge themselves through outdoor play, and learn to love our planet. Out here, tamariki can run, climb, splash, and play to their heart’s content.

To be considered for this role you will:

  • Have a full current teachers practising certificate
  • Possess a strong knowledge and experience with programme planning, curriculum, and pedagogy 
  • Lead from the heart, be a mentor and guide for kaiako 
  • Have a minimum of 6 years experience as a fully qualified and registered ECE teacher with leadership experience 
  • Have knowledge of the day-to-day running of an ECE centre as well as the ability to form solid relationships with everyone that walks in the front door 
  • Be able to start mid to late August.

At New Shoots you will be surrounded by strong leaders, 14 other centre directors to lean on and plan with, as well as a management team that pride themselves on being supportive, available and passionate about their wider New Shoots whānau. Your strengths will continue to develop with many leadership learning opportunities and professional development. You will be able to immerse yourself as a part of our wider Kerikeri community.
