What makes us a unique kindergarten?

Whanaungatanga...Relationships are paramount to each child's learning journey. Respect is afforded by everyone to everyone – children and adults alike, ensuring each person’s mana is respected and nurtured. This is reflected in the 'physical and emotional' environments teachers provide, which is positive and supportive.

We have been in our community for over 20 years and are situated in Otara. Our kindergarten is currently looking for an experienced (40 hours per week), qualified and fully registered ECE teacher.

You will be an ECE-trained teacher with a New Zealand ECE qualification (or NZQA-assessed equivalent), be registered as a teacher in NZ and have a current practising certificate. 

To be successful in this role, you will be:

  • Passionate about teaching and supporting every child to be a confident and capable learner
  • Highly motivated, flexible and responsive to child-led teaching possibilities
  • Confident and well versed at setting up learning environments to promote children’s thoughts, discussions questions, ideas, interests and creativity
  • Strong strategies and experienced in positive guidance
  • Knowledgable about Te Whāriki, experienced in bicultural practice and te reo Māori, and respectful of Te Ao Māori
  • Warm and welcoming, and strongly committed to whānau participation, community engagement, equity and inclusion
  • Skilled in planning and assessment, and reflective practice
  • Able to produce meaningful and authentic documentation that reflects the child and their learning
  • Competent in using ICT as a teaching tool
  • Passionate about nature, our environment and committed to sustainability, which you naturally weave in to your teaching and learning experiences with children.

We want professionals who are passionate about building children's resilience and risk taking – but we are laid-back and willing to have a bit of fun.
