You will notice the difference when you visit us. Our preschool is a beautiful character villa with three separate rooms each with its own natural playground. Our tamariki are engaged in their learning and our kaiako are passionate about the service we provide.

An opportunity has arisen to join our long standing teaching team working 32–40 hours per week in our nursery (0–2 years). This is a maternity leave position for one year. If you are a qualified, self-motivated, passionate kaiako with initiative and a strong work ethic this could be the position for you! Experience writing learning stories is a bonus! 

The successful applicant would have:

  • An NZ recognised ECE qualification, NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa
  • A calm and nurturing personality
  • Great communication skills – able to build relationships with tamariki, whānau and colleagues
  • Good written skills – experience using Storypark is helpful
  • A great sense of humour bringing a sense of fun to the day
  • A passion for sustainability and the natural environment.

In return we offer:

  • A well resourced preschool with natural playgrounds
  • Free uniform, fully funded teacher registration and first aid training
  • Subsidised childcare (50% fees) if applicable
  • An excellent advice and guidance programme and ongoing PLD opportunities
  • A great supportive team and a privately owned family business
  • Three separate areas both inside and outside with great teacher/child ratios
  • A programme that offers the children numerous opportunities throughout the day to have fun while meeting their individual goals.
