What will I be doing?

This is where you come in! Whānau are at the heart of everything we do so you'll be playing a key role in building relationships with our children and families here at BestStart Leeds St.

BestStart Leeds Street is conveniently situated in the Wellington inner city, our extended learning environment. We provide opportunities for children to develop their independence, building self-esteem and pride in themselves. We also leave the city to go on our weekly nature connection programme where the children head to the bush for the morning to discover nature at its best, giving them opportunities to be active and adventurous. Alongside our primary caregiving practice, which is inspired by the RIE philosophy, we believe partnership with whānau is important in providing quality care and holistic education for our children.

This position is full-time (40 hours) and permanent working in the preschool.

Role requirements:

  • B Ed/Dip Teaching Level 7 (ECE) and current teacher registration/certification
  • Demonstrate a strong understanding of programme planning, curriculum and individualized planning
  • A fun and energetic approach to learning and a positive outlook with proactive approaches to learning and relationship building
  • Demonstrate good knowledge of Te Whāriki and the current ECE regulations.
