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

Located in Kawerau, beneath Pūtauaki Maunga, this centre provides a spacious and well-resourced early learning environment. 

We provide an inclusive play-based curriculum, allowing tamariki to lead their own learning at their own pace.

Whakawhanaungatanga is at the heart of all that we do and we believe that tamariki learn best when we work in partnership with the whānau.

We are responsive to individual needs and will work with whānau to ensure there are equal opportunities for all. 

We are looking for a teacher with the following attributes:

  • A motivated, enthusiastic teacher, 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.
