We are looking for a Teacher Support who will add their energy and enthusiasm to our existing team. This is a 12-month fixed-term contract, covering for a permanent staff member on parental leave.
The position does not require any formal teaching qualification, but previous experience working with pre-school children is an advantage.
Ideally, you will be available to work for 8 hours between 7.30am and 5pm.
Our Teacher Support works closely with tamariki, assists the teachers with the learning programme, builds positive working relationships with whānau, prepares resources and completes some housekeeping duties.
The day is spent engaging with children, so you won't be doing any paperwork. This is a stimulating role where there is constant interaction with tamariki, staff and whānau.
To be successful at Nettie Riley, you will need:
to be willing to learn and develop your natural ability to engage with children
to have passion for supporting our tamariki and whānau
lots of empathy, tolerance and patience
to be a flexible team player, with a "can do" attitude and a proactive mindset
a great sense of humour!
