We have an exciting opportunity for a passionate certificated teacher/kaiako join our team. 

About us:

We are part of Central Kids Early Education, which operates 56 other kindergartens and centres across the central North Island.  

Central Kids provide access to high-quality professional development opportunities and ongoing professional support to maintain quality teaching practice.

We are party to the Kindergarten Teachers' Collective Agreement, which provides 6 weeks' annual leave, 9 days' sick leave and ample non-contact/professional time. 

At out kindergarten, we acknowledge Māori as tangata whenua and whakapapa is an integral part of our Whānau, Hapū, Iwi katoa.

Our bi-cultural curriculum supports tino rangatiratanga by allowing children to make their own choices and decisions, as they solve problems by thinking creatively in a learning/teaching community that encourages respect and empathy.

We listen to, and share, the stories of our local area. We connect with our maunga, Mt Ngonogotahā, through legends and regular excursions.

Information technology are tools used for learning and teaching and are an integral part of our curriculum. 

We are looking for a teacher with the following attributes:

  • Motivated, enthusiastic, able to put current theory into practice
  • Able to demonstrate a working knowledge of Te Whāriki
  • Able to have robust conversations and work with a team who have a strong emphasis on whakawhanaungatanga as they support each child's social and emotional growth
  • Committed to creating/maintaining strong, positive relationships with whānau
  • 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 service 
  • ECE qualified and hold current certification and a current first aid certificate.
