A rare nursery teacher position available in our small nursery.

We're a small centre, licensed for only 48 children split across 3 spaces. We have a team of experienced teachers and teachers in-training.

We are searching for a qualified teacher with a gentle, engaging manner who demonstrates empathy, initiative and patience to work with our wonderful U2s. Our nursery classroom has only 12 children daily with the support of 3 teachers. 

The centre philosophy is based around active movement with an onsite gymnasium available for all ages to enhance their gross motor skills. The daily programme has a variety of teacher-led and free-play activities. The genuine and caring relationships we share with children and their wider whānau is reflected through the strong community feel within our centre. Check out our Facebook page for a snapshot of what we get up to.

Although each of our spaces has a room leader, we encourage all of our team members to grow their leadership capabilities and strengths in areas of their interest. Ideally you are flexible, positive, have a readiness to learn, while also having the confidence and initiative to help our team continue to grow and thrive!

This role is flexible within 30–40 hours across either 4 or 5 days. Each team member has regular non-contact and administration time, as well as 1-on-1’s with an allocated mentor and guidance to support their professional growth cycle.
