Our childcare is a family-run, small centre based in a converted villa since 2015. Our home-like approach and feel creates a warm environment for tamariki, whānau and kaiako alike. Our philosophy of lifelong learning extends to our team, too, where we take those opportunities to constantly grow our practice and knowledge through professional learning development. 

Due to one of our kaiako being promoted, we are in the exciting position to be looking for a qualified kaiako to join our team! This position is in a mixed-age programme where we have a maximum of 28 children per day, and a tuakana-teina approach to learning and teaching. 

The ideal kaiako will be:

  • ECE qualified (Level 7 or higher)
  • Certified with the Teaching Council (or applying to be)
  • Have experience as a kaiako for tamariki U5
  • A team player; collaborative, sociable, takes initiative
  • Not essential, but preferred: knowledge or interest in Enviroschools, forest sessions, sustainability, te tiriti-based practice, tuakana-teina approaches, knowledge of te reo Māori me ngā tikanga

We are excited to offer:

  • A longstanding team (5 kaiako total)
  • Small group size
  • Supportive and ongoing PLD opportunities linked to goals and interests
  • Enviroschools-focused programme including forest sessions
  • Early January 2020 start date (or earlier for the right person)
  • 40 hours per week.
