We have an exciting opportunity for a leader to join our team.

About us: 

Our spacious outdoor area allows tamariki to lose themselves in their play, challenge themselves, take risks and gain confidence by learning through play. Our bird aviary, fish tank and worm farm provides learning opportunities and encourages tamariki to be curious and kind with all living things. This all links with the value we place on te ao Māori, and respect for Papatūānuku.
