Early Childhood Te Kura offers a free, individualised programme for ākonga/learners aged two to six years old.  Learners enroll with the programme for various reasons including distance, itinerant, high health needs, special development needs, special circumstances.

Due to increased enrolments, we are looking for a 1.0 full-time, qualified early childhood kaiako for 2022.

This is an exciting role for an experienced ECE Kaiako who will work in partnership with parents/supervisors/whanau and develop an individual programme of learning for ākonga, using the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whāriki.

This role requires someone who works collaboratively in a team, is willing to learn, is a problem solver, share ideas and builds respectful and reciprocal relationships.

Our programme uses various online communication tools, so you need to be able to be digitally literate and capable with technology. 

If you are an excellent communicator, self-motivated, show initiative, and are committed to improving education outcomes for learners, we would love to hear from you. With Te Kura working to become a bilingual organisation having proficiency or skills in Te Reo Māori would be highly desirable.
