We have an exciting opportunity for a passionate leader to join our experienced team. 

About us:

Our kindergarten is operated by Central Kids Early Education who manage 55 other kindergartens and early learning centres throughout the central North Island.

Central Kids provide access to high-quality professional development opportunities and ongoing professional support to maintain quality teaching practice. 

At our kindergarten, we offer our tamariki and their whānau: Mana tangata – sense of belonging; respectful, reciprocal relationships; extensive and meaningful learning opportunities for tamariki; a well-resourced kindergarten and a child initiated programme.

We foster the dual cultural heritage of Aotearoa. Significant features of the kindergarten include whakamana (enjoyment of learning and self management), kotahitanga (affirming behaviour learning), ngā hononga (participating together) and whakawhanaungatanga (positive links to hapu, whānau, parents and the local wider community).

We are looking for a leader with the following attributes:

  • A motivated, enthusiastic leader, who is able to put current theory into practice
  • Able to demonstrate a working knowledge of Te Whāriki
  • Able to have robust conversations and work with a team who have a strong emphasis on whakawhanaungatanga as they support each child's social and emotional growth
  • Committed to creating/maintaining strong, positive relationships within the wider community and outside agencies
  • Able to demonstrate a growth mindset, be open and willing to change that enables us to continue providing high-quality early education to all tamariki who attend our services 
  • ECE qualified and hold current certification and a current first aid certificate.
