We have an exciting opportunity for a leader to join our team in Morrinsville. 

About us:

We are a mixed-aged centre in the heart of Morrinsville township.

Our centre philosophy is based on our whānau care system and our practice is embedded in learning through play.

We have an unstructured day to allow our children to be engaged in deep learning through their own play choices.

Together with whānau, children will be supported to continue following their own daily rhythms like they do at home.

We are part of Central Kids Early Education, which operates 57 other kindergartens and centres across the central North Island.  

Central Kids provide:

  • A commitment to upholding our obligations as partners of Te Tiriti o Waitangi
  • A commitment to Rautaki Ahurea – our cultural strategy
  • Access to high-quality professional development opportunities
  • Ongoing professional support to maintain quality teaching practice.

About you:

  • A motivated, enthusiastic leader, who is able to put current theory into practice
  • Demonstrated knowledge of ECE business operational requirements eg: staffing, funding and licensing criteria
  • Able to demonstrate a working knowledge of Te Whāriki
  • Committed to te reo Māori me ona tikanga, te tiriti o Waitangi and te o Māori
  • Able to work within a team who have a strong commitment to supporting the social and emotional growth of tamariki
  • Committed to creating/maintainging strong, possible relationships within the wider community and outside agencies
