FTE Teacher (40 hrs per week), Permanent - Torbay Kindergarten
40 hours per week, Monday to Friday
2019 is going to be a great year for someone
We are looking for a keen, energetic teacher who loves 3-4 year olds to join our fabulous Torbay Kindergarten teaching team. We already have a great team of part time teachers and the Head Teacher. This person would be a great support to the Head Teacher and gain considerable benefit from her leadership.
Torbay kindergarten on the North Shore has attractive wide spaces – the usual (swings, sandpit, grass, climbing equipment) but also a garden area, verandah and covered outdoors. Inside is a hive of activity with an emphasis on art as well as ample floor space for blocks, trains, projects and more. Children are very much in charge of their own learning and teachers are fully engaged with following and supporting their learning with provocations and conversations.
Torbay Kindergarten has an exceptional reputation in the community and is well supported in all its community events and the regular excursions to the beach.
The children attend 8.30am - 2.30pm with the younger age group on Thursdays and Fridays and older children Monday to Wednesday.
Teachers enjoy excellent working conditions under the Kindergarten Teachers Collective Agreement (KTCA) (8am – 4.30pm, 6 weeks annual leave, 3 weeks professional time, generous non-contact time) along with the security of being part of the supportive Northern Auckland Kindergarten Association.
We’d love to hear from you if you:
· Share our commitment to ensuring all children experience an exceptional early childhood education
· Have strong documentation skills
· Are a supportive and fun team member
· Have recent successful teaching experience with 3-5 year old children
· Hold a NZ recognised ECE teaching qualification,
· Hold current NZ Teacher Certification and a First Aid certificate, and
· Are a NZ citizen/resident or hold a NZ work visa
Feel free to visit the kindergarten. Term begins on 21 January 2018.
