Note: We pay at Kindergarten rates, there is 5 hours non contact per week for a 37 hour week, we are one whole teacher above the legal requirements and ratios. 

We are looking for a permanent qualified kaiako to join our team. Having recently added a seventh teaching position to our team means we operate above ratios and are able to enjoy a better-quality work experience, more time, more support, less stress, and a greater ability to be the kind of teacher we all want to be.

We are a mixed age centre of 1-to-5-year-olds and the benefits of a tuakana/teina educational philosophy are an integral aspect of our small, home-like, inner city, centre along with our emphasis on whanau/family.

The kaupapa of Te Kainganui is to follow the lead of children, which is balanced by our well-established Te Tiriti and Pacifica curriculum priorities and our focus on nature curriculum.

Our philosophy is anchored in practice related to respectful and reciprocal relationships, secure attachment and a responsive care curriculum focused on child agency and empowerment.

About you:

  • A motivated, enthusiastic teacher, who can put current theory into practice.
  • Have a passion for working in a mixed-age centre.
  • Able to demonstrate a working knowledge of Te Whāriki.
  • Able to support ​curriculum, planning​, and assessment.
  • Committed to creating/maintaining positive relationships.
  • Able to demonstrate a growth mindset, be open and willing to learn and improve.
  • ECE registered and qualified.

What we offer you: 

  • All the provisions outlined in the Collective Agreement and including pay parity level wage.
  • Professional development.
  • Supportive management team and collaborative professional team culture. 
  • The ability to be authentically involved in decision making regarding the direction of the centre and development of our curriculum/programme/philosophy.
  • The opportunity to become part of a small, family-oriented community focused on offering progressive and contemporary education and care.
