We are looking for a sound classroom practitioner who can care for our enthusiastic 6-year-olds from a solid foundation of Waldorf teaching experience. You will be delivering a developmentally aligned, rich curriculum based in the visual, social and practical arts and facilitate a successful grounding in good habits and routines for our tamariki as they embark on their exciting school journey.

At Te Rā you will be part of a group of supportive, experienced teachers who work collaboratively within a “whole village” culture.

An understanding of the principles of Te Tiriti ō Waitangi is essential, as is NZ teacher registration (or the proven ability to become a NZ registered teacher).
