Whenuakite Country Kids is a rural community-based centre located between Whitianga and Tairua, on the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula. We are a charitable trust, and our centre has operated in a true spirit of community collaboration for almost 20 years.

Our centre has a strong focus on our localised curriculum, where tamariki are supported and encouraged to learn and grow through reciprocal relationships and meaningful experiences. We believe it is important to uphold the Mana of each child and for tamariki to develop a strong sense of belonging here in this place. Our centre is influenced by our surrounding natural environment and our Kaiako are passionate educators who enjoy working alongside tamariki in an inclusive and creative, play-based curriculum.

  • Works well in a team, demonstrates a growth mindset and a willingness to learn and grow in your practice to provide best quality learning outcomes for tamariki
  • Is ECE qualified, holds a current certification and first aid certificate
