Registered ECE teacher in a natural setting, Waiheke Island
At Fossil Bay School and Kindergarten we have kindness, creativity and focus at the heart of our work. We provide kindergarten and primary year education, based on the modern Rudolf Steiner curriculum, that is unhurried, screen-free and has small class-size as a priority. From that we observe the following benefits: relaxed, low anxiety children; agile, future-ready minds and strong academic outcomes.

Our magical festivals bring the community together in a very special and unique way. Our link to nature is evident in the environment where we grow the food we eat at lunch time. The kindergarten sits in a rural setting on Waiheke Island which is, according to Lonely Planet, one of the world’s most beautiful islands only 40 minutes from Auckland city.

With a new General Manager on board we are preparing for a new and exciting phase of the kindergarten and are looking for proactive and enthusiastic teachers to join the team. Having experience in Steiner education will count as an advantage but is not a requirement for the teacher with the right heart and experience. The applicant needs to be interested in contributing to our new phase and mentoring others.

At this point we are looking for an experienced NZ registered teacher. Overseas applicants need to be able to get NZ teacher registration which normally at least requires a Bachelor Degree in Education.

Contact me for more information or to organise a visit to feel the magic. We look forward to hearing from you. Please include a cover letter and CV in your application.
