Tamariki 2 years and over. A small integrated whānau-oriented Enviroschool preschool based in the heart of Lyttelton, nurturing and educating tamariki from six months to six years. Our O2 and U2 areas are partitioned by a half door, and we are licensed for 30 tamariki.

Our programme is tamariki-led / play-based, inspired by their interests and those of our learning community. We aim to foster the joy of an inquiring mind, and support learning and development with rich relationships and appropriate intentional teaching strategies.

We have a primary-kaiako philosophy where within a larger group each kaiako is responsible for individual tamariki and their whānau – working together to support and plan meaningful learning experiences. We value clear documentation and we use the Educa online portfolio programme in conjunction with Individual Profile Books to provide evidence of the learning journey.

We value the concept of ako – learning from each other – and enjoy respectful relationships with our tamariki, whānau, learning community and environment. We have a strong bicultural focus, while supporting a range of cultures represented in our community.

We are seeking a wonderful kaiako with experience, passion and humour – who shares our values and aspirations as above, and has a special interest  in working with our 2-year-olds transitioning to the O2 area.

This person would be a reflective kaiako with an ongoing interest in professional development. They would be committed to contributing to the centre’s programme and internal evaluations, have a strength in providing clear evidence-based documentation, demonstrate good time management, and enjoy working with our supportive team of 100% qualified kaiako to provide exceptional early childhood education for our whānau.
