Ready to step in and take the reigns of a much loved family-owned centre (licensed for 50), while the manager takes leave for a year? 

Early Explorers Childcare is a spacious and well resourced centre located in the heart of Avondale. Our natural park-like outdoors area is a treasure!

We are looking for a manager who has a passion for delivering high quality education and care, who also:

  • Brings out the best in people; is able to guide, support, work collaboratively and empower kaiako.
  • Knowledgeable in the ECE regulations, licensing criteria and Te Poutama, being able to meet administration expectations and compliance requirements.
  • Demonstrates a strong understanding of Te Whāriki and programme planning.
  • Embodies our values and commitment to respectful practices.
  • Cultivates a  sense of whanaungatanga for our whānau, kaiako and tamariki.
  • Is organised, proactive in achieving goals, and has attention to detail.  
  • B Ed/Dip Teaching Level 7 (ECE), holds a current Practicing Certificate from the Teaching Council of Aotearoa, New Zealand.
  • Demonstrates a growth mindset, being open and willing to grow and change to bring about strengthened learning outcomes for children through internal evaluation.

Whether you have managed a centre already or you are an experienced team leader and you are ready to take on a new challenge, you’ll be provided with all the support and mentoring you need to flourish in this role, by our centre owner with more than 15 years experience. Furthermore, you will be supported by an amazing team (including an administrator) who are committed to professional growth, problem solving and working together to provide a fun, safe and stimulating environment.  

Start date is flexible.  There is the possibility that this role could lead to a permanent position.
