New Shoots Matamata generous in size and beautifully modern, a place where our tamariki  feel at home in our bespoke early childhood centre. 

Local themes of hunting and farming run deep in our centre and there are endless opportunities to learn through genuine play and self-discovery. We encourage exploration – it is the foundation needed to develop problem solving and perseverance, confidence and resilience.

We are currently looking for an experienced qualified kaiako to join our team. Team culture is so important to us that we are looking for the right fit, someone who loves what they do, has fun while they are doing it and has the drive to constantly learn. You will have a kind, calm nature with a passion for nurturing our tamariki. 

Our ideal kaiako will:

  • Be a great team player
  • Be qualified and registered
  • Show initiative and be motivated to work hard
  • Prepared to work with a variety of age groups
  • Have fun when they work
  • Have an ability to write excellent learning stories.

At New Shoots we have so much to offer:

  • A stunning and supportive work environment
  • Endless professional development opportunities
  • Lower than normal ratios
  • 100% financial help through covid
  • A great staff benefits package
  • Amazing programs such as forest kindy.

As early childhood educators we are inspired by the RIE and Pikler approach, so having experience in these would be a huge advantage and "right fit" for New Shoots.

If you want to develop as a teacher and inspire our tamariki then we would love to talk to you.
