The Kindergarten is located in a park area, alongside the local Croquet, Bridge, Harriers and Cricket Clubs. The area is known as Kaiherau. There is a reserve called Rotokawau/Virginia Lake around the corner from Kindergarten with beautiful bird life and walks.

St Johns Hill Kindergarten operates from 8.30am to 3.30pm five days a week with 40 children between 2 and 6 years of age, and a teaching team of 5 teachers.

We offer both a six hour and a seven hour day to whānau for their tamariki. 

This position is 0.95 (38 hours per week) worked over five days:

Monday (8 hours) – 8am to 4.30pm (including ½ hour unpaid break)
Tuesday (8 hours) – 8am to 4.30pm (including ½ hour unpaid break)
Wednesday (6 hours) – 8.15am to 2.45pm (including ½ hour unpaid break)
Thursday (8 hours) – 8am to 4.30pm (including ½ hour unpaid break)
Friday (8 hours) – 8am to 4.30pm (including ½ hour unpaid break)

Our children attend from all over Whanganui City and rural areas.
We offer a whānau-based approach, with siblings attending together and extended family members. We are a culturally diverse kindergarten and many children have English as their second language. Having whānau from other countries has led to a strong interest and inquiry focus about the world, our cultural, identity and children’s sense of belonging at Kindergarten and in the community.

To apply for this teaching position, you need to address the key requirements listed below.  We ask that you talk about these in your covering letter, giving examples of how you have demonstrated these skills/abilities in previous roles.

Please remember to attach your covering letter, resume and other relevant information as listed in the application requirements on our website.
