Two Montessori Maternity Leave Contracts

  • Employer: Fountain City Montessori
  • Location: Waikato, Hamilton
  • Work type: Contract

*Are you a baby whisperer? Do you love babies?  
*Do you enjoy toddlers and under three year olds?  

Come and join us at Fountain City Montessori in our Nido or Young Community rooms where we develop trusting relationships and support children’s growth and development through exploration of their senses and practical life activities.

Fountain City Montessori is situated in central Hamilton. We are licensed for 95 children across three classrooms in a brand new purpose-built facility with an outdoor classroom that features trees, real grass, flowers & vegetable gardens.  

We currently have two six-month maternity leave contract opportunities coming up from May 2018 for:
• our Nido team: 7am – 3:30pm, 5 days a week
• our Young Community team: 9:30-6pm, 5 days a week.

Whilst a Montessori qualification is desirable, what is essential is that you have a basic understanding of, and a willingness to learn and apply the Montessori teaching philosophy in our classrooms. Training and support is given.

Knowing how to read babies is important for our nido room, and an understanding of the sensitive period of order, and therefore patience and the ability to be firm is essential for our toddler room.

So if you are passionate about nurturing independence, respecting everyone and everything, and showing children how to do simple daily tasks (like putting on their own hat and shoes for themselves) and then allowing them to make safe mistakes in order to learn… then APPLY NOW… you will love working with us, and we will love working with you.  

Being privately owned, you can expect something different when you apply to work here. We are a very capable team of individuals from all walks of life – we respect and support each other, and we are continually learning.  

Please apply by emailing by 18th April 2018 – make sure you tell us in your cover letter why being child-led is important to you.

Applicants for this position must have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
