*$2000 (gross) Sign on Bonus


Are you looking for a centre committed to Pay Parity and growth, with fun, creativity, relationships and integrity at its heart? Truly underpinned by inspiring tamariki to develop a lifelong love of learning and enacting our vision of “You Care, I Care, We Care”?


Our phenomenal and close-knit Nursery team at The CubbyHouse Pioneer Highway are looking for that special someone to contribute to our shared vision in our purpose built Under Twos building. Small primary caregiving groups of 6 tamariki mean that the relationships you build are meaningful, and a well-established buddy system ensures that no tamaiti are ever left behind.


A position with us in Nursery isn’t just about turning up and doing your job, as our Kaiako genuinely care for each other, for our tamariki, and for our whānau. We are a close team and communication and the opportunity to grow capability and leadership skills thrive here.


In Nursery, we use NZ Sign Language with our tamariki, open the day with a mat time where tamariki share their pepeha, shape our transitions around individual needs, plan according to whānau aspirations and child interests, and always practice respectful care.


Within CubbyHouse we have a committed leadership team consisting of our Centre Manager, Assistant Manager, Curriculum Leader, and a Team Leader for each building, meaning you’ll never be short of support and guidance. Our Curriculum Leader works with you every week on a 12-week induction so you always know the ins and outs of Centre life. Our Support Office is also truly amazing, with real, tangible acknowledgement of the special mahi we do each day.


We can offer a minimum 30 hours contract with a day off each week, giving you the best of both worlds. If you’re thinking about a change but aren’t quite sure if you’re ready to make the move, email Sarah and organise a time to come and have a look around – we can guarantee that you will feel the manaaki, dedication and care that CubbyHouse offers and won’t want to leave.


We offer an exceptionally competitive salary package, this includes:

·         $2000 (gross) Sign on bonus

·         Competitive remuneration – we have opted into pay parity

·         Discounted childcare

·         First Aid Certification and Flu vaccination

·         Full reimbursement of teacher registration costs

·         Staff uniforms

·         A generous PLD budget where you can choose PLD for your own learning

·         Comprehensive induction, mentoring and appraisal processes and ongoing opportunities for career growth and personal and professional development!
