Our lovely centre manager is relocating, therefore we have an exciting opportunity for an experienced centre manager to join our team. 

This position will be effective from May. 

About us:

Our centre is operated by Central Kids Early Education, who manage 55 other kindergartens and early learning centres throughout the central North Island.

They provide access to high-quality professional development, mentoring and leadership opportunities and ongoing professional support to maintain quality teaching practice. 

Our centre caters for children 0–6 years-old and operates an U2s and O2s area.

The 4 guiding principles of our philosophy include:

Aroha – love and compassion
Manaaki – nurturing and support
Whakakoha – respectful and giving
Whanaungatanga – relatedness and connection.

Teachers individualise centre routines to respond personally to each child on the basis of information shared with parents. Transitions into the older children’s area are well-planned in partnership with whānau.

Tamariki are involved in planning excursions that follow their interests and enable them to explore the many natural gifts our local environment has to offer. 

We are looking for a leader with the following attributes:

  • Motivated, enthusiastic and able to put current theory into practice
  • Able to have robust conversations with team members and support our experienced team
  • A passion for working within a mixed-age centre, with both U2 and O2 aged tamariki 
  • Able to demonstrate a working knowledge of Te Whāriki
  • Committed to creating/maintaining strong, positive relationships within the team and the wider community
  • Able to demonstrate a growth mindset, be open and willing to change that enables 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.
