Current Vacancies - Teaching Team

Thanks for taking a look at our careers page here at Oma Rāpeti ELC. 

Available Role - November 2021

We have a maternity teaching position within our infant space, available November 2021. 

Are you a passionate, committed teacher who wants to work within a small, RIE focused infant room? You will be incredibly passionate about slow paced, relationship-based care within a small group size (10 infants). You likely would have completed the RIE foundations course and have a thorough understanding of what this looks like in practice, woven together with Te Whāriki and Emmi Pikler's philosophy.

You will be a fully qualified, mature and experienced teacher. You must be flexible and hands on, ready to get stuck in with whatever the day presents.You will work closely with our small, tight knit team. We have a fantastic reputation (running with waitlists over both rooms) and we want someone who believes in what we do here and is passionate about our little oasis in the city.

We have a 9-day fortnight here at the centre, with the 10th day from home for 3.5 hours and the remaining time for yourself. This role might also suit someone who wishes to work three to four days per week. We are flexible for the right teacher. There is plenty of parking onsite and we have a leafy, beautiful oasis amongst the trees right in Central Auckland.

To apply, please forward your CV and cover letter to
