Our centre at Northland Childspace is licensed for 30 children from 6 months to 6 years of age. Experience teaching and knowledge of all pedagogy for all age groups would be beneficial. Our organisation supports teachers and leaders with professional development, further study, and career advancement opportunities. We are proud that we have 20% male kaiako at Childspace and we encourage and support male involvement in ECE.

We welcome applications from anyone who shares our leadership team values of respect, playfulness, excellence, courage and empowerment. We can be flexible on hours per week but with a minimum requirement of 32 hours.
