  • Aged between 18-30 years
  • Have a valid driver's licence

  • Speak English to a good standard
  • Meet New Zealand visa requirements or be a New Zealand resident

You'll work with at least one child under five and receive all the benefits of our long-term educational programmes. That means you'll have support from a fully qualified early childhood education teacher and have access to our weekly playgroups, outings and childcare training workshops.
