We are a community based Preschool with three (age specific) awesome and high quality learning programmes O2 centres in beautiful Arrowtown. Being community based means all profits go directly into supporting learning programmes for tamariki.  

Our programmes are authentically inspired by the Reggio Emilia & Nature Based approaches to teaching and learning. Two nature based programmes  mean our oldest children get to spend unhurried time in the beautiful river reserve areas of Arrowtown each week. Te Aō Māori is strongly embedded throughout our programmes. 

This position would suit a beginning teacher who is / about to be registered as they would be working with a friendly, supportive & experienced team who have awesome mentoring skills. 

We are looking for someone who is kind, a team player with a great sense of humour and is committed to ongoing learning.  A ‘can do’ attitude is a must!

Other advantages would be a teacher who is creative as well as passionate about Te Ao Māori & nature based learning. An interest and/ or understanding of the Reggio Emilia approach to teaching and learning would be an advantage. 

In return we can offer you pay parity with kindergarten teachers and 6 weeks holiday per year, including when the Preschool is closed for 3 weeks at Christmas and one week in July. But most important is the opportunity to teach in an awesome preschool with supportive management and very cool teachers! 

Tamariki are enrolled for either part days (8.30am–1pm)  or full days (8.30m–3.30pm) with kaiako hours of work 8am-4.30pm (5pm finish on staff meeting days / team cluster meetings)
