We have an exciting opportunity for a kaiako to join our team in Rotorua at our Elstree Kindergarten. 

About us:

Central Kids Elstree was one of the very first kindergartens established in Rotorua, opening our doors in 1964. Over the years we have had up to three generations of whānau attend. The involvement and support of whānau and local community has contributed to this longevity which is still going strong today.

Our philosophy begins with the whakataukī

“Aroha ki te ako, ki te aroha. Loving to learn, learning to love.” 

Growing kindness and empathy in our tamariki is a priority at Elstree.  

Central Kids provide:

  • A commitment to putting children at the heart to all that we do – Ko ngā tamariki te pūtake
  • A commitment to ensuring te reo Rangatira not only survives but thrives in our organisation
  • 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
  • 6 weeks' annual leave, 9 days' sick leave and ample non-contact/professional time per the Kindergarten Teachers', Head Teachers’ and Senior Teachers’ Collective Agreement.  

About you:

  • A motivated, enthusiastic teacher, who is able to put current theory into practice
  • Able to demonstrate a working knowledge of Te Whāriki
  • Committed to te reo māori me ona tikanga, te tiriti o Waitangi and te ao Māori
  • Able to work within a team who have a strong commitment to supporting the social and emotional growth of tamariki
  • Able to demonstrate a growth mindset, be open and willing to change that enables us to continue providing high-quality early education to all tamariki who attend our services
