Montessori Guides required for 2022 (3-6 years and 9-12 years)

Our independent Montessori school in Hamilton, New Zealand, caters for children 2 years old to 12 years old, in 5 classrooms on site. We have a beautiful 4 acre property which incorporates miniature ponies, chickens, bountiful gardens and many native birds and wildlife. We offer a traditional Montessori programme which uses Montessori best practice as our guiding principles.  The school was established in 2006 and continues to be well regarded with pupil places being highly sought after.  

Visit to find out about us.

We seek a Guide for our 9years+ classroom who is Montessori trained and enthusiastic about delivering a curriculum appropriate for this age range. There is autonomy in planning and designing the programme with full support to ensure you can cover the breadth of the Montessori curriculum.  As an independent school there are many opportunities for extending children’s learning and following their interests. This is an opportunity to join a team committed to contributing to enviro education and programmes such as Montessori Model United Nations to involve children in understanding real world issues. 

We also have a vacancy in our 3-6 years programme for a Montessori trained Guide. 

Co-located with our 6 years+ classes this opportunity again offers scope for a rich and full curriculum incorporating all aspects of a traditional Montessori programme localized for Aotearoa, New Zealand. Our Programme Manager will provide full induction training if you are new to Aotearoa.

If you have experience and interest in guiding children as they complete our full Montessori programmes we would love to hear from you by 31 December 2021.

Relocation grants for eligible candidates may be available if you meet the immigration criteria for NZ.  If you are a non-NZ resident or do not hold a Work Visa for NZ please review this site;  which has links to the relevant information.
