Our association offers strong support and guidance for certificating teachers as well as exciting professional development opportunities.

The kindergarten

This kindergarten has a team of passionate teachers which makes it a great place to be. Families love the warm and caring atmosphere, which the teachers have worked hard to establish.

The children love the natural outdoor play-space, which has been developed and enhanced with native plantings and rocks which gives it a distinctive New Zealand feel. A forest with a bridge and playhouse and vegetable planters provide enhanced connections with nature.

Our inside environment is set up to encourage exploration with creative art spaces, books, technology and literacy areas. Teachers actively engage in supporting children's learning and development.

We are looking for an experienced early childhood educational leader to lead the team, tamariki and whānau at the kindergarten.
