Company Seedlings Early Learning Centre
Location Christchurch City, Canterbury
Listed Fri 11 Oct, 3:53 pm
Type Full time, Permanent
Reference LH PS Teacher
There has been something in the water at Seedlings Longhurst with quite a few of our teachers having babies! We believe in a healthy work/life balance and for that reason some of our teachers are returning to work in a part time capacity. This means that we are looking to recruit a new teacher for our Preschool.
Maybe you could be our new teacher?

Seedlings is proudly owned and operated by two local families who are committed to the important role that we play in our community.

We have a strong team of experienced teachers who do what they love and love what they do! We pride ourselves on the fact that we all have shared values, which in turn supports a positive professional culture. A culture that demonstrates gratitude and kindness.

Our centre is well resourced with a strong emphasis on the provision of a natural and purposeful learning environment with strong links to the Reggio and RIE Philosophies. Whilst it would be an advantage if you have had experience working within a Reggio based philosophy it is not imperative as long as you have a growth mindset and are open to learning. We provide primary caregiving in our Nursery and have key teachers in our Preschool.

We are possibly somewhat biased and think that our tamariki are some of the most fun loving children to teach. There is such a love of learning and enquiry that happens here at Seedlings.

We pride ourselves on the level of high quality professional development and learning opportunities that are provided to our teachers along with the support and guidance that is extended from our Owners/Directors and Team Leaders.
We would be keen to hear from you if you are looking for a position where your strong professional attributes and values not only align with ours but they are acknowledged and valued.

This position does require you to be at least provisionally certified as an ECE teacher or currently in training working towards your ECE qualification.


We will support you with the following:

+ Owners who are supportive of the "super human" job that you do.

+ Guidance and mentoring programme

+Wellness programme (EAP)

+Comfortable uniform

+10 days sick leave

+Paid day off on your birthday

+ Opportunities to study both the RIE and Reggio approach

+Competitive pay rate
