Careers at Little Moa's

Would you like to work at a sustainable, holistic Early Learning Centre in Auckland? We'd love to hear from you!

At Little Moa's Early Learning Centre, we are always looking for extraordinary teachers to join our industry-leading team that keeps defining the future of Early childhood education in New Zealand and the world.


Current Positions Available:

Do you have a green thumb? Do you like gardening? What about worms? Are you an innovative thinker, an out the box doer, a time-to-make-a-change seeker? Above all do you have a passion for teaching and learning with our younger generations?

We have some positions becoming available with our bubs and our todds in our recently renovated and refurbished centre on the edge of Ellerslie. Little Moas has turned a over a new leaf with a change of ownership and management now leading the centre, children, whanau, kaiako and the community on a new journey towards environmentally friendly practices with a focus on sustainability.

We want to teach and learn alongside other kaiako who want to make a real difference. Individuals who want to help our children nurture a lifelong love for learning, as well as hold their own love for the environment and nature to inspire, educate and share this with our young tamariki. 

Two of our kaiako are growing more of their own little bubs, due early next year and we require experienced, qualified and NZ registered teachers to fill their roles. Our centre is growing each day and these positions are permanent and full time as we embrace our growing roll over time. However we are open to discussion if you are looking for something short term too.

You will be working in a supportive team environment, with hands on educational leaders, great ratios and an abundance of natural materials and resources. You will be immersed in an environment that has been designed with nature in mind, to support sustainable practices such as gardening, composting and worm farming. From us you will receive; full reimbursement for teacher registration costs, first aid certification, uniform and five weeks annual leave per year. We provide a comprehensive induction program with regular and ongoing mentoring and professional development as you grow through your own learning journey with us.

Sustainable practice sits at the core of our values and it is important to us that kaiako share this passion for change and growth in our industry. Join us if you are able to contribute to programme planning and document episodes of meaningful learning for our children. We want to hear from you if you are competent with knowing and being guided by, Te Whariki and hold a deep understanding of respectful care and education for children.

Applicants do not have to have a green thumb, love gardening or worms to apply!

An inspirational and fun working environment, an innovation-driven, fast-growing organisation, ambitious goals and an incredibly talented team are just a few reasons why you will love a career here.
