Team selection

It is extremely important to select teachers and support staff who share our passion for providing a loving respectful environment. Each team member is hired for their unique strengths and they are empowered to take ownership of their contribution to the Elim community.  We also invite student teachers to join our team on a regular basis as part of our commitment to the profession. This is a great opportunity for teachers in training to learn through practical experience and to share their ideas and contemporary knowledge.  All required safety and reference checks are completed prior to employees joining the team, thereby ensuring the safety and protection of our tamariki.

If you are interested in a teaching position with us either qualified or unqualified then please send your CV and cover letter to manager@elimcambridge.org.nz

Team Work

Early Childhood Education is unique compared to teaching in other sectors in that it is a collaborative role with more than one teacher supporting children and providing care and curriculum. As a consequence, teamwork is essential to the ongoing development and health of the programme.  We take care to select teachers who share our philosophy around learning and support our team members to contribute their individual talents to the education and care of all our children.

My daughter started at Elim when she was one. I truly believe that she's in a supportive and nurturing environment with teachers who care enough to know how to respond to her needs. Every morning they take time to settle her and when I arrive in the afternoon she is always happy and engaged with a teacher.She is exposed to so many amazing learning experiences by diverse staff with a huge range of talents and skills. I love Elim and would recommend it to anyone.

One of the many things I appreciate about Elim Early Learning Centre is the interest the staff and teachers take in the whole family, not just my toddler. When we come to pick up my toddler, my other child is greeted by her name and often find her engaged in conversations with the staff. Elim has welcomed other important people in my toddler's life into the centre during visits and special occasions. This has really helped her sense of belonging, as the connection between her home and centre has been developed and kept strong.
