We have an exciting opportunity for a passionate 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 centre offers a rich learning environment, both inside and outside – with mature trees and a playground to complement nature, which welcomes, challenges, captivates, informs, comforts and inspires children and adults alike.

The teaching team is committed to Te Whāriki and Te Whatu Pōkeka, and undertakes regular professional learning to ensure our teaching philosophy – Whakaaro Nui–theory and practice is current and reflective supporting a willing, ready and able learning attitude and atmosphere.

Our dedication to bicultural practice ensures that each child, whānau, and teaching team has a place to stand – a place to belong in, therefore:

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.
