We are currently looking for a full-time (40 hours per week), head teacher to join our dedicated team. If you are an experienced (5+ years), registered and fully certificated ECE teacher with proven leadership experience, this is a fantastic opportunity to be part of the 'magic' that is the AKA!  

The AKA provides exceptional ECE experiences for children and their whānau. Our Auckland wide network of kindergartens are magical places where young Aucklanders get the very best start to prepare for school and beyond – building the foundations for a lifetime of learning. And every one is unique – to the children, families and communities they serve.

Nestled at the foothills of the Waitakere Ranges, this is a rare opportunity to be part of a kindergarten and community that is a little out of the way, and a lot out of the ordinary. We are looking for a seasoned head teacher who really enjoys being a great example to their team as an exceptional leader. Through your open communication style, collaborative approach and focus on strengthening relationships, you will ensure that the team, kindergarten whānau and local community are on the journey together.

Balancing professional leadership with management of the day-to-day kindergarten operations and teaching duties means variety and intrinsic reward. You need to be energetic and enthusiastic about providing excellent learning experiences to our tamariki, driven by our play-based philosophy and focus on dispositional learning; and have the resilience to meet the compliance and operational targets that the management component of the role requires.

Ultimately, everything you do will be focused on achieving the best learning outcomes for children.
