Finding an elusive early childhood teaching role with the best provider out is much like stumbling across a unicorn on your way to the local dairy. Lucky for you, RKA, a true not-for-profit organisation with a community-based, child-centred approach, has a rare teaching vacancy at our kindergarten within an experienced team in an amazing high-energy environment with a 35 place licence. 

Due to the incumbent teacher moving on to a fabulous new opportunity, if you are a qualified and registered teacher who is confident with ICT; has a current first aid certificate that covers all of the NZQA standards for working within early childhood education; as well as a passion for bicultural practices and articulating aspects of Te Tiriti o Waitangi when working with children, then RKA and our team are looking for a teacher just like you!

Other attributes that will be a huge advantage for you include:

  • Strong interest in the environment and its role in teaching
  • Ability to build relationships in a tight-knit community and work with a variety of children and whānau
  • A team player who has good time management
  • Proven internal evaluation practices
  • Forward-thinking and responsive to constant change
  • Confidence in your teaching practice
  • Willingness to continue to develop professionally.
  • The ability to bring your sense of fun and humour to work with you.

In return RKA will welcome you as a valued member of our extended whānau while offering generous ongoing professional support; quality continuous professional development that is second to none; 6 weeks plus 1 day annual leave, pay parity with primary teachers; and 12½ hours of non-contact time per week!

Sound like your cup of tea? Don’t hesitate, please apply.
