The centre is located in the Frankton suburb of Hamilton in a modified building with 3 large inside areas attached to outside areas. We have a large group of Māori and Pacific children. The centre is licensed under the umbrella of BestStart for 80 children with the opening hours 7.15am–5.45pm Monday to Friday.
We have a vision to provide an inclusive quality learning environment through engaging the rich cultural diversity of all our tamariki and whānau. Key Māori principles that underlie our philosophy are aroha, whanaungatanga, and wananga. We believe the essence of success for tamariki stems from our ability to make meaningful connections with our tamariki and whānau.

  • The ability to build relationships with staff, whānau and the community
  • A passion for working with our most vulnerable – our babies
  • A sound understanding of planning and assessment
  • Self-motivation, be respectful, optimistic and show kindness and compassion for others
  • Reliability, be mature and nurturing
  • An understanding of Te Whāriki, and will need to be able to contribute to the centre's internal evaluation and have a understanding of loose parts and sustainability
  • Must have provisional registration or be a registered teacher.

This position is for 30 hours per week – Monday to Friday.
