A fantastic opportunity has arisen at our kindergarten for a qualified and certificated teacher to join our passionate team.

You will be an ECE trained teacher with a New Zealand ECE qualification (or NZQA-assessed equivalent), be registered as a teacher in NZ and have a current practising certificate. 

The image you will hold of the child will be one of confidence and competence, you will be able to facilitate learning opportunities through children's strengths, interests and passions and support children's growing learner identities. You will have an understanding of bicultural practice and knowledge of te reo and kaupapa Māori and you will be committed to supporting all children's language, culture and identity. You will know the value of play and the joys of following an emergent curriculum.

We are deeply invested in supporting children to grow as confident and capable learners. We are looking for someone with strong pedagogical practice, who brings a warm and caring approach to their teaching. Te Whāriki underpins everything we do, relationships are a critical part of this, with children, with families and whānau and with each other. We are in the process of shaping their local curriculum and would love you to be a part of this.

Our kindergarten offers an inquiry-based programme where children are encouraged to discover, experience and understand the world around them. 

The ideal candidate would also demonstrate the following abilities and dispositions:

  • Write meaningful and authentic documentation that reflects the child and their learning
  • Have a sense of fun and adventure as well as being passionate and enthusiastic
  • A sense of responsibility and willingness to show initiative
  • Self-motivated, and will work collaboratively within our team.
