At Red Kite Preschool we believe our teachers are our most important asset.  In practice, that means we ensure our staff have the resources they need to do their jobs – regular non-contact time, investment in their professional development and a say in the resources we buy.  We offer mentoring for both qualified and non-qualified staff, with plenty of support in achieving and maintaining New Zealand teacher certification. We want our teachers to be growing in their profession, with career pathways available to them and the knowledge that they are supported and valued by the centre management.

NZ Qualified Early Childhood Educator

Our small, attractive Epsom centre is looking for another teacher to join a warm, friendly team.

You can feel the great atmosphere when you walk in the gate. We're Reggio-inspired, with a passion for getting our children in touch with the environment by getting them out in our community and local parks. Our converted bungalow offers a great working environment and has a home-like feel. We're looking to grow our roll and so we need another qualified teacher to come on board.  With a number  of our beautiful children coming from Mandarin-speaking homes, an interest in Chinese culture and a working knowledge of Mandarin would be an advantage.   

We believe our teaching team is vital to our success as a centre, and so we are willing to invest in your development as a teacher.  Over the last year we have invested in PD in the fields of Forest Kindergarten,  and more recently, the Virtues Project, which provides a great life skills foundation for children.  Both of these have implemented as a key part of our programme.

What we can offer:

  • Competitive rate of pay
  • Generous PD and non-contact time
  • A fun, welcoming environment
  • Stylish uniform

What we need:

  • A recognised NZ ECE qualification (Degree or Diploma). Full or provisional certification. New graduates welcome.
  • Excellent written and spoken English
  • Fluency in a second language is desirable, but not essential.

Please email us your cv, or call Anita on 09 638 5674 for more information.

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
