We are a small, integrated whānau-oriented Enviroschool preschool based in the heart of Lyttelton, nurturing and educating tamariki from 6 months to 6 years. Our O2 and U2 areas are partitioned by a half door and we are licensed for 30 tamariki, with a maximum of 8 in our U2 area.

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 enquiring mind, and support learning and development with rich relationships and appropriate intentional teaching strategies.

We have a Primary-kaiako philosophy where 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 transition kaiako with experience, passion and humour – who shares our values and aspirations as above.

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