Old MacDonald's Newstead is looking for a passionate kaiako to join our 2–6 year old space!

Are you interested in working in a centre where genuine, respectful partnerships between adult and child are upheld? Does the thought of a philosophy in which children follow the rhythms of their body to guide their day make your heart sing?

Are you looking for an opportunity to connect or reconnect with papatuuaanuku and have this passion celebrated, valued and invested in?

Does a natural environment where children and kaiako walk alongside one another bare foot in the grass feel like a space you envision working in? Where kitchen gardens and fruit trees are in abundance and grassy hills are aplenty? Where there are places to hide and nestle into the earth? Where loose part and natural resources are intentionally chosen with the creativity and imagination of the child at the heart? Where there is ample opportunity to get muddy, swing from trees and connect with a unique, rich landscape?

Is working in a team who stand side by side and heart by heart, while inheriting the gifts each have to offer sound like what you have been looking for? Old MacDonalds brings to life a learning space where tamariki are immersed in flora and fauna, where deep and meaningful conversations are the accepted form of communication, where the heart and spirit of Te Whāriki are upheld in our adapted curriculum, where social competence and the spirit of the child is central to what we do

At Old MacDonald's, we know that children come to receive love, and we want kaiako who come to give love.
