Our teachers are what make Bear Park successful, and behind our teachers are progressive, and inspirational leaders.

If you have strong leadership aspirations, this role could be the perfect step in your career. Due to one of our Classroom Co-ordinators going on Parental Leave the opportunity has arisen for someone to step into this role for 12 months, growing your leadership capabilities and leadership skills within a truly supportive environment.

As a Classroom Co-ordinator you will be responsible for supporting and mentoring a team of 4 passionate teachers, building strong relationships with the families, guiding the educational programme and overseeing the daily organisation of the classroom.

To ensure you have every opportunity to succeed in your role and the opportunity to progress your career even further, you will have:

  • daily support from a proactive, experienced and supportive Centre Director.

  • regular collaboration with a Pedagogical Team for support with the educational programme, environment, documentation and much more.

  • bi-monthly professional development with an external consultant, focussed specifically on developing your leadership capability.

  • fortnightly network meetings with an experienced team of Classroom Co-ordinators.

  • regular non-contact time to organise and facilitate collaborative planning and documentation processes.

The role of the Classroom Co-ordinator is directly reflected in the commitment, engagement, and success of the teachers, the delight and learning opportunities offered to children, and the strong partnerships with parents. Would you like to be one of these people?

Within Bear Park Remuera is a unique Infant and Toddler space, with professional and dedicated teachers, who are passionate about working with children aged 3mths to 18mths. We are looking for a Qualified and Certified Early Childhood Teacher, with proven leadership capabilities to guide this team of teachers, whose practice is inspired by the values and principles of the Reggio Emilia approach.

In excess of what you will be offered as a Classroom Co-ordinator, you will also receive:

  • Regular professional development opportunities, both internally and from external experts. This will offer you real learning opportunities, and through these will come opportunities both for your personal growth, and your career.

  • Exceptional teacher ratios that reflect a rich learning program for all children.

  • A modern, purpose-built and innovative centre that offers optimal teaching and learning environments and resources to support both children and teachers in their learning journeys.

  • Opportunities for overseas travel to attend international conferences.

  • The opportunity to attend a range of Wellness workshops throughout the year, focussed on looking after you!
