We are on the search for a teacher-in-training to join our centre.  We have always been passionate about having students working alongside our experienced kaiako, and have recently had students complete their studies, leaving availability to support someone new.

We have a position available in both our Preschool room (3 - school aged) and nursery (2 months - 2 years) for a part-time teacher-in-training.  We are a small, privately-owned centre with only 48 children across 3 classrooms. We also have an onsite gymnasium for children to explore and improve their gross motor abilities.  
Our philosophy provides a mixture of child-lead, structured, routine and free-play opportunities with relationships being the most important aspect of our day-to-day interactions.  Check out our Facebook page to see what we get up to (Fundamentals Preschool and Nursery Merivale).

Ideally we are looking for a passionate, motivated student who is flexible between 7.00am - 6.00pm at least 4 days per week - unfortunately we cannot accommodate only school hours.  This role is for approximately 20 - 30 hours but additional shifts available regularly based around staff leave. 

You would need to either already be in study towards your early childhood qualification, or have a start date pending. 

You must demonstrate a bubbly personality, the ability to have fun, great interactions with children and initiative. We are happy to support you through your studies, growing your knowledge and experience. 

If you think this could be the right opportunity for you, we'd love to hear from you.
