Vacancy reference #: 1HARdP

We require a dedicated, nurturing teacher, to work collaboratively and be an excellent role model. The position is part-time, 3 days a week on a Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, a total of 24.5 hours. These are not school hours, and relieving could be available on Wednesdays and Fridays if wished. We are licensed for 12 children aged 11 to 24 months and have excellent teacher:child ratios.

A strong understanding of ways to foster learning in all children is vital as is a sound knowledge of Te Whāriki. Experience with internal evaluation, inquiry learning, intentional teaching, and individual learning programmes is necessary. It is vital to have strength in the documentation of our children's learning, and to be articulate and organised. Experience with Educa or Storypark and Appraisal Connector would be an advantage.

Our applicant will understand the importance of care routines and a respectful approach to these. Above all we need a kind, passionate individual with a genuine understanding of the capabilities of our infants and toddlers and an ability to foster and grow a love of learning within a caring environment. Our teaching team is welcoming, experienced and very supportive.

We are proudly committed to all things sustainable, as our centre is an Enviroschool with GreenGold status. A focus on sustainability as a core belief would be an asset. Our learning environment is in a home-like setting with natural materials and a play garden, with trees and vegetable gardens.
