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

About us:

Our centre 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. 

We are a mixed-age centre, catering for tamariki 0–6-years-old which means that our tamariki are all in the same learning space. 

This creates great opportunities for tuakana-teina relationships as our tamariki play and learn alongside each other. 

Our well-resourced learning environment is purposefully arranged to allow children greater opportunities for uninterrupted work and play.

We are involved in Enviroschools and are working towards sustainability as a centre. 

We are looking for a teacher with the following attributes:

  • A motivated, enthusiastic teacher, who is able to put current theory into practice
  • A passion for working within a mixed-age centre, with both U2 and O2 aged tamariki
  • 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 environment
  • 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.
