Nestled in the grounds of Kristin School, our well-established kindergarten caters for children 4–5-years of age to support their learning journey and create a seamless transition to Y0 and Y1. Licensed for 50 children, the kindergarten enjoys the support of Kristin School, including specialist teachers in languages, music and movement, performing and visual arts and resources across the school.

Kristin is one of New Zealand's finest non-denominational, coeducational, independent schools. Based in Albany, it provides exceptional education for over 1,600 students from Early Learning to Y13. The kindergarten has a carefully planned curriculum that interweaves an inquiry-based IB primary years programmer and the New Zealand Early Years Te Whāriki.

Role and experience needed

We are seeking a qualified early childhood teacher to work with our children to help children explore, inspire children to share and get them to ask questions and think critically about their learning so they can build confidence and develop an understanding of the world around them. This full-time role operates in shifts that vary between 7.20am–5.30pm, Monday to Friday. The kindergarten is open during term breaks and closes for 4 weeks at Christmas.

To be successful you need to have experience working with 4–5-year-olds and ideally primary experience with new entrants. You need to be passionate, professional and most importantly, you will be able to demonstrate commitment to Kristin's values and its distinct motto to 'Progress with Vision, Integrity and Love'. 

Benefits and Culture

This role offers the opportunity to work in a caring, loving and harmonious environment. You will have a commitment to your professional development and a supportive leadership team. Kristin offers a competitive remuneration package, 6 weeks’ annual leave and other wellbeing incentives.
