We are looking for a qualified / registered early childhood teacher to work full-time in our unique mixed-aged centre. We are licensed for 8 U2s and 22 O2s; this position is to work primarily with O2s.

We are a private family owned and operated centre, with a unique curriculum which involves our world famous ‘Wild Woods’ programme. You must have a keen interest in Papatūānuku and connecting tamariki with the natural world. Our outdoor area is one of the largest in Whangarei, and our tamariki definitely make the most of it with outdoor play being the core focus, water play, mud play, the sandpit, gardening and harvesting all topping the list of our favourite activities. The Wild Woods is an old growth forest situated on the back of the 133 acre working farm on which the centre is located. Accessed 3–4 days a week, every kaiako and child gets the chance to connect with our surrounding natural environment.

We are looking for someone with a fun personality that can fit in to our close-knit team, a sense of humour, a passion for the outdoor environment and sustainability, a strong leader that works well in a team.

We can offer you:

  • Excellent remuneration based on experience
  • Generous weekly non-contact time
  • Registration renewal costs covered
  • First aid certificate renewal (plus paid day off for attendance if needed)
  • On-going Professional Development with potential to attend the Natural Phenomenon conference.

We run on a 1:8 O2s ratio, 1:5 for the Wild Woods, and 1:3 U2s.

This position will initially be a 6 month contract to cover maternity leave, starting in November.

Applicants for this position will have New Zealand residency or a valid New Zealand work visa. You must be ECE qualified and registered.
