Do you want to work in a collaborative work environment where you can be part of a nurturing and compassionate teaching team?

We are going through a period of growth and is looking to discover passionate kaiako to join our teams.

Here we are a ‘family-feel’ centre that strongly believes whanaungatanga is the at the core of all learning. With this strong focus we use tuakana/teina as an active teaching strategy to encourage critical thinking, strengthen peer relationships, encourage sharing of knowledge and building independence through communication, cognitive thinking, collaboration and the sharing of responsibilities. This is reflected in our collaborative teaching practise where we actively encourage a shared leadership approach. We understand and encourage each Kaiako to build on their own areas of expertise, this when shared helps bring a greater depth of teaching and builds a high level of communication and trust between colleagues.   

As part of a strong community we have close ties to our local school which we enjoy visiting weekly. Our growing relationship with mana whenua and Maungatautari Marae is of huge importance to us all and the backbone of our community curriculum.  

The applicants will need to be flexible to work within an existing team; have a positive and professional approach to teaching and be proactive and motivated to grow in your own teaching practices, be confident and competent in documenting and evaluating learning. We aim to nurture great teachers who are passionate about all they do and who see themselves as learners too. You can be assured of complete confidentiality throughout our employment process.

Full-time, fully qualified, registered kaiako sought though job sharing is an option for the right applicant.
