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 is situated in Taumarunui surrounded by majestic mountains, rivers and national parks. 

Whanaungatanga, manaakitanga and kaitiakitanga are values that underpin our vision and philosophy.

Play Play Play is what we are about and this makes the way we learn extremely exciting, meaningful and lots of fun. Our large and open outdoor environment allows children to gauge their own interests, have autonomy over their exploration whilst being in nature and experiencing the elements.

We have consistent routines and unique rituals that build on a strong sense of mana whenua, thus developing a strong sense of place and identity, 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.
