New Shoots Bayfair is currently looking for a strong, well experienced kaiako for our toddler room. One of our amazing team is making the leap to the South Island so are wanting another beautiful, passionate, and creative teacher to join the team. 

New Shoots Bayfair, based in Mount Maunganui, prides itself on its supportive, fun, and solid team. It is crucial in ECE to have a team that supports, encourages, and uplifts, and that's exactly what we do. This role will be for a heart lead kaiako with proven experience in positive and fun centres. We would also ideally like to see someone with similar philosophies, we follow the Pikler and RIE approaches.  

Our nature-inspired outside area gives children plenty of space to learn, play and soak up some valuable Bay of Plenty vitamin D. Complete with water tables, sandpits, walking trails, and climbing towers, the outdoors is shared among all children, giving the centre a real whānau feel. 

New Shoots is committed to our amazing kaiako and offer so much guidance and support as well as:

  • Smaller ratios to help with building solid and meaningful relationships with tamariki and whānau
  • 100% support financially through lockdowns
  • A newly launched staff benefits package full of fantastic surprises
  • Endless learning opportunities and PD support
  • A stunning environment and team that will feel like your home away from home. 

If you are a fully qualified and registered kaiako and leader then please apply.
