If you’re looking for a new centre to call home, our extended whānau are looking for passionate Early Childhood Education (ECE) Teachers who are creative, empowering and positive. 

Early Childhood Education attracts a special type of person. You might be known for being creative, nurturing or task focused… but ultimately, you were attracted to Early Childhood Education because you care deeply for the education of the littlest members of our communities. We understand this, because this is what attracted us too. 

Our desire is to gather people who care deeply about quality, and then empower those people to bring their unique gifts and talents together for the benefit of our tamariki. We value each member of our team, and we know that by supporting you in your journey, you’ll be the positive and supportive influence in theirs.

At Provincial Education, we are exceptionally proud to offer our ‘Wellbeing at Provincial’ programme. Throughout the year, we launch new initiatives and organisational focuses with our centres and teams to put a special emphasis on supporting the overall wellbeing of our staff as individuals. Our wellbeing initiatives can range from mental health or EAP counselling, to focusing on the importance of relationships, sleep and gut health! We know you give so much as educators, so our initiative concentrates around supporting you to give back to yourself.

We recognise the importance of investing in you, as you invest in our tamariki. Alongside our Wellbeing Programme, we have other benefits like:

  • A comprehensive induction programme with regular and ongoing mentoring and professional development which includes a generous PLD budget where you can choose PLD for your own learning
  • A generous Teacher in Training incentive programme which provides financial assistance during your study journey
  • Full payment of Teacher Registration costs, First Aid and Food Safety Certificates
  • Discounted Childcare Fees
  • Free Flu Vaccinations
  • We will be opting into Pay Parity from January 2022

Our core values are what brings us all together, as one. Each value holds it’s own special meaning and inspires the way we choose to do things. We believe these are a true reflection of how we put people first in everything we do. At Provincial Education, our positive team culture is felt throughout the entire organisation, and is very evident among our friendly Support Office Team, Regional Managers and CEO. Learn about what our team have to say. We invite you to take a minute to watch the video below to hear for yourself.

If you are looking for a new early childhood centre to call home, our extended whānau are looking for passionate educators, just like you! With over 70 centres from Coopers Beach to Timaru, we have a community of teachers ready to welcome you. With a choice of Montessori, Reggio Emelia and Free Play centres, there is so much that awaits you when you join our team. 

Spread your wings, pack your positive attitude and align yourself with an organisation who is ready to welcome you warmly into a new career journey of support, growth, empowerment, positivity and of course… fun!

Regardless of our robust business policies, processes and procedures that sit behind the scenes, our leadership model at Provincial Education focuses on empowering our Centre Managers to lead their team to make decisions and operate their centres with a tailored approach that best reflects the needs and interests of their community. This allows them to retain and maintain their own unique identities. However, all centres are supported by a Regional Manager who offers ongoing and regular senior guidance and we also have a Support Office in Orewa who work alongside our centres to offer direct assistance around Property, Human Resources, Recruitment, IT, Marketing and Finance.
