This kindergarten in Bucklands Beach is currently looking for a 40 hours per week head teacher to join our dedicated team from March. If you are an experienced (5+ years), registered and fully certificated ECE teacher with proven leadership experience, this is a fantastic opportunity to be part of the 'magic' that is the AKA!  

Are you a head teacher who really enjoys being a great example to their team as an exceptional leader? Through your open communication style, collaborative approach and focus on strengthening relationships, you will value the past whilst bringing to life a vision for the future that is shared by the team, kindergarten whānau and local community, and ensure that all key stakeholders are on the journey together.

Balancing professional leadership with management of the day-to-day kindergarten operations and teaching duties means variety and intrinsic reward. You need to be energetic and enthusiastic about providing excellent learning experiences to our tamariki, driven by our play-based philosophy and focused on dispositional learning, and have the resilience to meet the compliance and operational targets that the management component of the role requires.

Our ideal candidate will also:

  • Share the organisation’s commitment to the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi, informing and leading bicultural practice
  • Share our kindergarten’s philosophy of care and respect for the natural environment and sustainability and incorporate this into learning experiences for children
  • Value the use of ICT as a teaching tool, utilising a range of available technological resources to extend children’s learning and improve teaching practice
  • Have a strong focus on inclusiveness, recognising and valuing the rich diversity of the tamariki, whānau and local community.

Ultimately, everything you do will be focused on achieving the best learning outcomes for children.
