Qualified Preschool Teacher (full-time)

Our Henderson centre has a great combination of shared collaborative areas and small cosy nests of space, with a fabulous outdoor area, lots of light and natural resources.

With inspiration from Reggio Emilia, our teachers have a passion for inspiring wonder, creativity, imagination and investigation, fostering children's hundred languages and unravelling their theories alongside them.

We are looking for a registered preschool teacher to join our team, either full-time or part-time on a job-share basis.

We are committed to providing inspiring professional development, including paid in-service sessions held every 2 months, where all of Bear Park comes together to connect and enrich our practice. We also offer external workshops and conferences, and invitations to a one-week programme held in Reggio Emilia in Italy.

We invest in teacher wellness, with a wide range of benefits and rewards, including our annual Wellness Programme focussed on your holistic wellbeing.

Our Teaching Team:

    • Ratios 1:3 infants, 1:4 toddlers, 1:6 / 1:7 preschool
    • 3 hours paid team planning time per week
    • Regular paid PD
    • Qualified teaching teams
    • Trips to Reggio Emilia for top performers (yes – in Italy!)
    • Experienced mentors
    • Leadership Development Programme

“Our working environment is respectful, it’s a place where you are supported, a place where you are challenged, a place where you are encouraged to do your best and acknowledged for your achievements.”

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