We are seeking a centre manager to join Island Bay Childcare for a full-time, permanent position starting the end of October 2021.

Island Bay Childcare will turn 10 this December! We have a license for 106 children, in 3 age defined and designed classrooms. We are in the final stages of a completing a renovation of our U2 room, which will now have a dedicated infant space, and our 2–3-year-old classroom. Both classrooms will also have a complete upgrade of their playgrounds.

It’s really exciting to have fresh, clean, fully resourced classrooms for the children that have been designed by the teachers! We are also really fortunate to have a massive separate rumpus room for the children to use throughout the day.

We have a teaching team of 17, with room leaders in each classroom who support the manager. We have a stable team with some members here since we opened 10 years ago! We are proud to offer our teachers pay parity rates. We also have a dedicated cook who makes the best food and a full-time administrator who looks after everything from inquiries to invoices to fees.

As a family-owned centre, we are committed to providing excellent support, encouragement and space for our manager to enact their vision.

Our perfect candidate would be:

  • ECE trained and registered
  • Experienced in a manager’s role
  • Confident and knowledgeable in the ECE regulations, licensing criteria, MOE funding handbook and Te Whāriki
  • Passionate in supporting teachers to meet the standards of the teaching profession and
  • An advocate for their community.

Most importantly, our team wants a manager who likes to have fun, understands and promotes respectful practice, offering support and mentoring.

If you have the right attitude, spirit and enthusiasm, we would love the opportunity to chat with you.
