Are you looking for a centre that will make your heart sing, every day?

Our centre manager lives and breathes ECE and has created an incredible environment offering a taste of farm life in the middle of Mount Eden. 

We are enthusiastic about creating a home-from-home filled with heart and aroha. We take particular inspiration from the philosophies and teachings of Magda Gerber and believe that our tamariki deserve a space in which they can unfold in their own unique way.

We are currently looking for a head kaiako who displays high standards of teaching at all times. You will have a deep passion for working with babies and toddlers and will be able to demonstrate your leadership abilities. 

You will receive a competitive wage, generous non-contact time, childcare discounts, paid staff meetings, extra sick days, training incentives and career development opportunities!

We strive to inspire creativity and independence through loose parts and are great advocates for teaching as inquiry and sharing our own passions with the tamariki.

As our head kaiako you will display the below skills and attributes in your role:

  • Skilled in documenting high-quality and attractive individual learning journeys/planning
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Ability to lead a teaching team
  • Value high-quality and relaxed but professional whānau-kaiako partnerships
  • Respectful and supportive practice
  • Intrinsically motivated to provide a beautiful environment for our tamariki
  • Engaged in ongoing learning and contribute to a supportive and welcoming team culture
  • A can-do and solution-based outlook on life
  • Initiative, passion and drive as a kaiako AND ako.

If you enjoy building nurturing and respectful relationships and want to do something to make your heart sing every day then we would love to hear from you!
