An exciting opportunity has become available at our small family owned preschool, licensed for 28 children.

We invite qualified, registered kaiako (full or provisional registration) to apply who are highly motivated, innovative and passionate about early childhood education and who are dedicated to providing high quality care and education.

You will need to have a sound understanding of Te Whāriki, be enthusiastic, organised and work well in a team. The position is working with children aged 2–5 years and is approximately 16½ hours a week (3 days a week 9am–3pm). Could possibly lead to more hours.  

You will be joining a team of professional, respectful and inspiring kaiako who like to have fun, are passionate about teaching and value the importance of building relationships with tamariki, families/whānau and our local community. We provide a supportive working environment with centre owners who value their team.  

Our philosophy recognises the importance of spontaneous play where tamariki are supported and encouraged by kaiako in an environment which embraces nature and beauty, sparks curiosity and wonder and speaks to children’s hearts which is influenced by aspects of the Reggio Emilia philosophy. Underpinning our philosophy are the Te Ao Māori values of Ako, Wairutanga, Mannakitanga, Tuakana teina, Rangatiratanga and Whanaungatanga. In our preschool we have created an environment where tamariki are free to explore, create and investigate in a calm, respectful and peaceful place at their own pace. 

Position to commence January 2021.

If you have any questions or would like further information please contact Vanessa.
