Looking for the right centre to apply your well-honed intentional teaching practices? Fascinated by Reggio-inspired child-lead investigations, exploring nature and art? 

We are looking for an experienced and ECE-qualified kaiako who is interested in being a pedagogical coach to our less experienced teachers. Importantly, you will have a passion and enthusiasm for working at Daisies. You will be working closely with the head teacher helping to design to design and implement the curriculum, and as a second person responsible.

Daisies has a strong focus on learning for all, including our kaiako. Three times each year we run in-house wananga lead by our directors, head teachers, education leaders and external experts. Our team has a good mix of teachers who all bring ideas and passion to our teaching and learning environment.

We are looking for a kaiako and education leader for "Te Pihinga" house.  Te Pihinga means young plant; our tamariki range in age from around 3 to 5 years. Most children at Te Pihinga are initially enrolled next door at Te Purapura and transition to Te Pihinga. So if you have a passion for teaching older toddlers blossoming into pre-schoolers then this role is for you. 

Daisies was created 13 years ago with a vision of intentionally applying best practice in ECE – drawn from research and observations from Anne Meade and Rachel Denee, our lead pedagogistas - and inspiring others to do the same.  In 2019 we opened our second centre, enabling us to create two distinctive houses with a stronger focus on each age-group. There is significant interaction between the houses, with a collaborative leadership model. We are active participants in the Reggio Emilia Aotearoa community of practice, and have a strong interest in RIE/Pikler philosophies.
