Job Description

Do you love playing and having fun with children while teaching them at the same time? Young hearts and minds are designed to be nurtured in a secure environment, built on meaningful, genuine relationships. As an ASPIRE Educator, you’ll care for up to 4 pre-schoolers. We’ll provide programmes and activities based on Te Whāriki, the national Early Childhood Education (ECE) curriculum, and you’ll have regular visits and ongoing assistance from our Visiting Teacher.

About Us

AT ASPIRE Learning, you'll find that one thing that's been missing so far. If you're looking for a great work/life balance, a relaxed culture or an employer that exudes family values, you can find it all at ASPIRE Learning. We've grown very quickly in the short 3 years we've been operating. We were fortunate enough to be finalists in the Westpac Business awards for Best Emerging Business in 2020. We look after everyone in our service and that is how we've grown thus far. We're also 100% NZ owned, Maori owned and a family business.
