We are a small boutique mixed-age centre who pride ourselves on our family like environment. We strongly believe whanaungatanga is at the core of all learning. With this strong focus we use tuakana/teina as an active teaching strategy to encourage active thinking, strengthen peer relationships and build independence. This is reflected in our own teaching practice where we actively encourage a shared leadership approach; understanding that each kaiako has their own areas of expertise that when shared helps bring a greater depth of teaching.

We are looking for someone who has a passion for mixed-age learning, and is looking to join a small but strong team of professional Kaiako who support each other and enjoy each other’s company.

  • Being part of a supportive team is vital, you must enjoy growth, change and driving continuous improvement
