Who are we?

At HCK our teaching teams are passionate about new ideas and innovations and we welcome teachers who can share in that passion. 

Our association offers strong support and guidance for registering teachers as well as exciting professional development opportunities. You will have access to excellent resources and the opportunity to be part of a large network of qualified teachers and the leadership, guidance and support from our senior teacher team.

We are looking for an energetic, passionate and dedicated teacher to join the team. 

The kindergarten:

We play, learn and teach outside in all weathers because we believe that the weather and seasons provide rich learning opportunities.

We have a forest where children can explore in a natural setting and take responsibility for caring for our chickens. Our large sandpit is always a hub of activity, and the nearby climbing equipment allows children to develop their physical skills and gain confidence.

Nurturing and growing relationships is at the heart of everything we do. 

The position:

Our sessions times are 8.30am–2.30pm, Monday to Friday.

This position is a total of 36 hours per week, 5 days per week. Essential hours are:

  • Monday, Tuesday and Friday 8am–2.30pm
  • Wednesday and Friday 8am–12.45pm
  • The remaining 8½ hours non-contact hours are negotiable.
