Who are we?
HCK have been growing young learners for over 90 years in Lower Hutt, providing quality and affordable early childhood education. Our teaching teams are passionate about providing rich learning environments where children can explore, develop and have fun.
About our kindergarten:
Taita Kindergarten offers a welcoming home-away-from-home environment for tamariki and their whānau.
Our team aspires to develop a lifelong passion for learning in our tamariki, encouraging questions and creatively discovering new ways and ideas to teach through play. Our teachers create experiences and opportunities to help children develop the social skills and attitude they need for a future of learning.
Taita Kindergarten is part of the KidsCan ECE programme where food is supplied for all children 5 days a week. Meals consist of sandwiches, yogurt, fruit and 3 cooked meals per week. Each child also receives a new pair of shoes and a rain jacket.
We are proud that our kindergarten has become a meeting place for families in our multi-cultural suburb and a place for tamariki to express who they are. Our philosophy – whakatauki “Poipoi te kakano kia puawai” Nurture the seed and it will blossom.
We are looking for an energetic and dedicated teacher to join the team.
