Our children need a hand to hold as they discover the wonder and beauty of the world.

We are now on the hunt for a full-time experienced centre manager at our Te Awamutu Centre who is just as curious and eager to learn as our tamariki are.

Who we are: 
Creators Educational Trust is made of a kind-hearted bunch who care a whole lot about our future. Our children have ideas and voices and through our curriculum we work hand-in-hand to shape a world we’d all love to live in, founded on the values of aroha and manaakitanga.

  • Love and connection
  • The Reggio Emilia Approach

  • Working alongside whānau and the wider community
  • Contributing to the centre’s internal evaluation and strategic direction
  • Being the first to celebrate the individuality and potential of every child
  • Have centre management experience.

Relationships are at the heart here, children at Waipa join a very special community which allows them to grow in creativity, empathy and develop a love and respect for papatūānuku. Our inquiry-based curriculum is founded on Christian ethos and values and is strongly inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach.

We believe in celebrating the beauty and individuality of every tamariki and their whānau. Our kaiako are passionate about creating a culture of innovative learning which is represented in our beautiful and inspiring learning environments. Children are considered equal citizens with an incredible contribution to make to our society.
