We have an exciting opportunity for a passionate kaiako to join our team. 

About us:

We are part of Central Kids, who operate 56 other kindergartens and centres across the central North Island.

The kindergarten is situated 200 metres from Buffalo Beach in Whitianga.

Staff are friendly, mature and consistent, and the kindergarten has a warm, welcoming and homely atmosphere. Our outdoor space is a beautiful and large area with plenty of room for tamariki to run, explore and play. 

Weekly visits to the local rest home and ‘beach kindy' are a regular and integral part of our programme.

We are looking for a teacher with the following attributes:

  • A motivated, enthusiastic teacher, who is able to put current theory into practice
  • Able to demonstrate a working knowledge of Te Whāriki
  • Able to have robust conversations and work within teams who have a strong emphasis on whakawhanaungatanga as they support each child's social and emotional growth 
  • Committed to creating/maintaining strong, positive relationships within the community and outside agencies
  • Able to demonstrate a growth mindset, be open and able to flex with change to enable us to continue providing high-quality early education to all tamariki who attend our services 
  • ECE qualified and hold current certification and a current first aid certificate.
