We are looking for a collaborative teacher to join our shared leadership round table! Inspired by a flexible, blended Montessori approach with Te Whāriki at the centre. 100% qualified team, driven by genuine relationships, passionate about teaching, strong sense of belonging and appreciation of diversity.  We believe in pay parity, offering extended pay parity.

We value and care about our children, families and each other, especially our own teacher wellbeing. We have a well-established culture that we strive to protect, reflected in our September 2023 ERO review. Tamariki learn in a mixed-age setting (2–5, 30 children, 6 teachers) with Montessori equipment/other open-ended resources supporting children's learning through play. 

Learn from our external teachers, experts in their field, sharing their love of te reo Māori, spanish, physical movement, dance/drama, music and circus performance. Privately owned/operated by “teachers”, we share leadership in all aspects, growing future leaders. We believe in having happy teachers and whānau by having enough teachers for routines and learning to occur simultaneously. We’re all about teaching and are well resourced, both inside and outside. 

Don’t be afraid of the fact we’re Montessori; we’re created a blend that will work for someone who is flexible minded, co-constructs knowledge, capable of weaving purposeful learning into play, values inquiry and believes that “better never stops”!  Beginning teachers welcome; this role is about openness, willingness to learn and flexible thinkers.        

Looking for an ECE/primary qualified, certificated (provisional/full) teacher.  Full time position, involving 8 am starts, combination of “late closes” at 5.30 pm and “early finishes” at 3.45 pm. Open from 8am–5.30 pm, closing for four weeks at Christmas. Available due to a teacher moving overseas for family reasons.
