We have an exciting opportunity for a passionate qualified, certificated kaiako to join our team. 

About us:

We are part of Central Kids Early Education who operate 55 other kindergartens and centres across the central North Island.  

We provide access to high-quality professional development opportunities and ongoing professional support to maintain quality teaching practice.

We are party to the Kindergarten Teachers' Collective Agreement which provides 6 weeks' annual leave, 9 days' sick leave and ample non-contact/professional time. 

Our team is committed to providing positive outcomes for all tamariki through our rich, natural, warm environment and child-led philosophy. 

Play is important at our centre. Children are free to explore learning opportunities in their way and in their time. Promoting a culture of kindness, our values include aroha, manaakitanga (hospitality), whakawhanaungatanga (relationships), and kotahitanga (unity). We see children as capable learners and let them lead the way – the team creates the scene, based on their knowledge of each child

You will be:

  • 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 within teams 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 community and outside agencies
  • Able to demonstrate a growth mindset, be open and able to flex with change to enable 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.

We are a full year kindergarten that operates over the traditional term break periods.
