We are a small boutique mixed-age centre licenced for 30 children, who pride ourselves on our family like environment. We strongly believe whanaungatanga is at the core of all learning. With this strong focus we use tuakana/teina as an active teaching strategy to encourage active thinking, strengthen peer relationships and build independence. This is reflected in our own teaching practice where we actively encourage a shared leadership approach; understanding that each kaiako has their own areas of expertise that when shared helps bring a greater depth of teaching.

We are looking for someone who has a passion for mixed-age learning, and is looking to join a small but strong team of professional kaiako who support each other and enjoy each other’s company.
