Mangawhai Fame Preschool

Seeking Extraordinary Teachers

Announcing exciting opportunities for passionate ECE teachers to be
part of our new centre opening in the heart of Mangawhai Village early in 2022!

Do you have what it takes?  Are you looking for that x-factor work environment?
We are not just any run-of-the-mill preschool.......we are FAME! 

At Fame Preschool, our superstar team are our family – our Fame-ily! We welcome new staff by taking the time to find out what makes you tick. We use online personality tools to really understand you and we share this with the team to create a super-tight and supportive group. Fame is not just a place of work, it’s somewhere you belong.

Fame is owned and managed by Lana who is a qualified teacher, and she puts children at the heart of every decision she makes for the centre. As much as we want all the strands of Te Whāriki for our children, we want the same for our team too. If you have a strong sense of Wellbeing, Belonging, Contribution, Communication and Exploration, then you’ll find it easy to provide these for our families as well.

We are currently considering applicants for these roles:

Over 2s Team Members                               Under 2s Team Members

At Fame you’ll find a unique preschool environment for children from 0 to 6yrs with spaces designed for under 2s and over 2s. There is a lot of connection between the spaces through the day so that children of all ages can be together if they want to.

Dancing, singing, drama, and a multitude of visual arts will be part of your daily fun with our children, and you’ll be encouraged to plan and offer these opportunities to build on their confidence and creativity over their learning journey with us.

We are committed to providing exceptional quality education and care that evolves through reflection and innovation. You’ll enjoy fantastic teacher-child ratios in a relaxed and well supported team environment. You’ll also have plenty of opportunities for professional development, and you’ll evidence your growth cycle through guided inquiry to easily maintain your registration.

So is this something you would love to be part of?  Are you looking for a dynamic, fun, work day?

To fit out team, you’ll be able to offer:

  • Registration with the NZ Teaching Council
  • Gentle nurturing qualities, and a passion for children’s learning
  • A working knowledge of Te Whāriki
  • A commitment to respectful and empathetic communication
  • A heart for community and working collaboratively with our families
  • An open mind with a growth mindset
  • Any experience in performing or visual arts would be great


If you are seeking a warm, friendly, home-away-from-home environment where teachers are supported, highly respected, and celebrated, then this is the right place for you.

Hours will be negotiated with each team member, and rostered during our opening hours of 7.45am to 5pm.

Contact us today, we can’t wait to hear from you!
