@april79:  I pm’d you, but didn’t notice the part where you said you were a teacher (I was too, but primary). I noticed you said daycare – if you have a bachelors in Early Childhood Education I suggest you contact the New Zealand Teacher’s Council and obtain registration (I don’t know about other qualifications – might as well contact them!). If not, I would try looking at different job websites. 80% NZ teachers in ECE centres must be qualified and registerted, but that still leaves 20% of positions to look for otherwise. Good luck.

NB – I know most of the ECE specific stuff through my mother, who’s an ECE teacher. If I have got any info wrong, and any kiwi bees want to correct me, I’m more than happy to be corrected!

Enjoy. Anything I can do to help, let me know!

Just wanted to check that you were aware of the situation in Christchurch at the moment – that the recovery from the earthquake is still only just underway and there are housing shortages. My fiance’s parents live in Christchurch and I’m not sure if I would want to move there right now. There are still regular aftershocks etc.

@april79:  yes there have been over 9000 aftershocks i believe. they are rebuilding but some parts are still very damaged especially the city centre. if you google it you will find out more info. its a beautiful city though.

There arnt regular aftershocks anymore..I havent felt one in ages!

They are so deep and small that they cant be felt

But the housing shortage is something you would need to look into first
