If you’re looking for a new centre to call home, Busy Bees Aotearoa may be the perfect fit for you! Across the variety of our centres and support office we’re looking for passionate, dedicated, and committed people who love what they do.

Early Childhood Education attracts a special type of person. You might be known for being creative, nurturing or task focused… but ultimately, you were attracted to Early Childhood Education because you care deeply for the education of the littlest members of our communities. We understand this because this is what attracted us too. 

We want to gather people who care deeply about quality, and empower people to bring their unique gifts and talents together for the benefit of our tamariki. We value each member of our team, and know that by supporting you in your journey, you’ll be the positive and supportive influence in theirs.
