An exciting opportunity has become available for a passionate kaiako to join our teaching team.

We are the cornerstone of a strong, caring and safe community, helping to build strong children, strong families and strong communities for enjoyment of life. We recognise the importance of the early years for learning through relationships between tamariki, whānau, kaiako and the community. We are committed to nurturing growth in connected and purposeful ways. We believe a passion for learning and teaching is enhanced through being culturally responsive, inclusive and taking responsibility to create new opportunities with groups and individuals. Our natural environment and sustainable approach inspires play and activates the mind, body and spirit.

We are looking for an experienced and motivated teacher who has a knowledge of respectful practice and is able to implement this confidently, providing exceptional quality care for our tamariki. Being Pikler and Gerber inspired, we would ideally love someone who also has an understanding of this philosophy and guiding principles. 

As our valued team member we are looking for someone that fits our core values of:

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Honesty
  • Caring
  • Enjoyment of life.

Competitive remuneration, flexible work conditions, discounted childcare and support with professional growth are just some of the benefits of working for us.

If you are passionate about early learning, love to have fun, and are seeking to inspire learning opportunities for our amazing tamariki, we would love to hear from you.
