Our philosophy:

  • We aspire to support tamariki to take risks, practice independence and develop their social/emotional competencies
  • We support tamariki to safely develop and maintain strong relationships with kaiako, other tamariki and promote caring friendships, compassion and kindness
  • We are guided by Te Whāriki, and other pedagogical theories
  • We strive to provide a nurturing, trustful, warm and respectful environment
  • We are committed to communicating with whānau to provide secure, positive, quality care
  • We are determined to embrace and strengthen our cultural understanding from Tataiako and Tapasa, te reo Māori me tikanga practices. 

Does our philosophy connect with you? We have kaiako vacancies in our Pepe (babies and toddlers) and our Tuatara rooms. We encourage to come and visit us.

Do you support tamariki to manage their own learning? Provide rich and varied learning opportunities? Support individuals within their cultural communities? Have a shared vision to contribute to our ongoing journey through evaluation, reflection, and internal review.  

We are expecting to be reviewed shortly by ERO after completing 2 years of hard work.

Fully registered, qualified kaiako but provisionally registered kaiako are encouraged to apply.

The applicant must be a NZ citizen or hold a visa to permanently live and work in NZ. Hold a current ECE approved Police Vet.
