Te Atawhai Early Childhood Centre based in Mayfair is looking for a new Chairperson to help us to lead and support our not for profit, independent Early Childhood Centre.
Our centre had highly committed, compassionate and professional staff who strive daily to provide the very best care and education to our children, their families and the wider community - sometimes in very challenging circumstances. Our centre is totally free for up to 30 hours of care and education for each and every child who attend.
We are looking for a positive, open minded individual who can
work proactively with staff, families and the wider community. If you have some leadership skills and experiences and a can-do attitude this would be an advantage.
Our Te Atawhai community is a very supportive one. As Chairperson you would be drawn into our welcoming community and well guided and introduced into the role. The role itself is not demanding and involves building strong relationships, giving guidance and outside perspective to the management and the small group of Board of Trustees, who are families for our children. You will Chair a BoT meeting every eight weeks or so.
If you are at all interested in this important role for our centre, please phone Kelly on 06 870 7030. Thank you.
