Who are we?
HCK have been growing young learners for over 90 years in Lower Hutt, providing quality and affordable early childhood education. Our teaching teams are passionate about providing rich learning environments where children can explore, develop and have fun.
We are a not-for-profit dedicated to making quality early childhood education accessible to all. We have 20 kindergartens throughout the Hutt Valley.
About the kindergarten
Our kindergarten has a beautiful spacious outdoor area for children to explore and discover. Children love the natural outdoor play-space which has been developed and enhanced with native plantings and rocks to give a distinctive New Zealand feel. A forest with bridge, playhouse and vegetable planters provide connections with nature.The inside environment encourages exploration with creative art spaces, books, technology and literacy areas. Our friendly and experienced teachers actively engage with children to support their learning and development.
Our central location means we have families from all over the Hutt Valley coming to us and we have relationships with several local primary schools.
Due to recent government announcements of increased funding and HCK's strategic plan of staffing our kindergartens with 100% qualified and registered teachers, this kindergarten is looking for an energetic and dedicated teacher to join the team.
