We are seeking qualified ECE teachers at our centre at 3 Mataki Way, in Glen Eden. Featuring striking views of large native trees and across the hills of the Waitakere ranges, we offer spaces for 18 U2s and 42 preschool children.

Our Kids Mataki way provides a beautiful childcare learning environment inspired by the Reggio Emilia & RIE approach to teaching and learning. We are committed to honouring our role in Te Tiriti partnership and strive to grow our knowledge and practice of Te Ao Māori.

The outdoor spaces have a strong focus on the natural setting, where children will be encouraged to explore, learn, and grow in an environment that is both engaging and challenging. The inside spaces are thoughtfully organised in a respectful and homely manner, where careful considerations have been given to the aesthetics and natural elements to help instil a sense of belonging.
