This very important position leads our team in the day-to-day running’s in our under's room. There are too many facets to what this entails to list here but a few of the big ones include rostering for the room, maintaining MOE licensing requirements, supporting the room planning, extending interests and creating meaningful provocations.  

While you will have a head full of all these important things, you will have a passion for getting the best outcomes for our tamariki, our families/whānau and our team. We like to do the serious stuff well and have a bit of fun along the way.

Perks for working with us include:

  • Good remuneration
  • Great ratios
  • Some flexibility with working hours (we can look at part-time/job share)
  • Non contact off the floor
  • Payment of your first aid
  • Payment of your teacher registration
  • Paid PD
  • Free gym membership
  • Free childcare if needed
  • Breaks cover
  • The benefits of working for a smaller private centre, alongside the owners.

Things that will get you the gig:


  • Able to demonstrate your experience achieving great outcomes for tamariki
  • Effective leadership experience, maintaining a positive high performing team culture
  • Strong understanding and implantation experience of Te Whāriki
  • Pedagogy of teaching and maintaining quality learning environments.


  • Knowledge and experience with the licensing criteria, internal inquiry and self review.

If the above resonates with you, we would love to hear from you.

If you are looking for a great position within our team but are thinking taking on so much responsibility isn't for you at the moment we also have a teaching position in our preschool room.
