Our association has been providing early childhood education in South Canterbury for over 75 years and is the largest ECE provider in the region. Our 12 kindergartens are spread throughout the district from Timaru to Twizel. With an experienced senior teacher team, SCK is part of a combined initiative that will be providing professional support to the Waimate, Geraldine, Oamaru and Ashburton Kindergarten Associations from 2020.

Our association prides itself on a harmonious, unified, professional culture where all employees are valued. There is a developing focus on sustainable practices, wellbeing and creating effective systems. All 12 kindergartens are members of Enviroschools.

Our association offers strong support to all staff and has a comprehensive professional development programme that we believe is indicative of our progressive approach.

We are very focused on employing passionate, energetic and committed professionals to join our team.

We are a long-established kindergarten providing valuable education and care in this community. We operate 8.30am–2.30pm every week day with up to 40 children aged 2–5 years attending daily. The kindergarten team is passionate about creating a warm, respectful, nurturing environment for tamariki and whānau. In 2020 the kindergarten will be open for 48 weeks in the year.

We are looking to appoint a leader who is committed and capable of inspiring a dedicated team of teachers. This person must be enthusiastic, future-focused, child-centred and committed to ongoing professional learning. Previous leadership experience and/or postgraduate qualifications may be an advantage.

We welcome enquiries and can arrange visits to the kindergarten.

Applicants must

  • Be a fully qualified and registered teacher
  • Have a current first aid certificate.
