We are a small boutique mixed-age centre who pride ourselves on our family like environment. We strongly believe whanaungatanga is at the core of all learning. With this strong focus we use tuakana/teina as an active teaching strategy to encourage active thinking, strengthen peer relationships and build independence. This is reflected in our own teaching practice where we actively encourage a shared leadership approach; understanding that each kaiako has their own areas of expertise that when shared helps bring a greater depth of teaching. 

We are looking for someone who has a passion for mixed-age learning, and is looking to join a small but strong team of professional kaiako who support each other and enjoy each other’s company. This role is to cover a 6 month maternity position on a part-time basis (2–3 days a week plus relieving).

You can be assured of complete confidentiality throughout our employment process.

About you:

  • You will have a genuine passion for teaching children
  • Enjoy working in a shared leadership model and be actively involved in planning, coordinating and evaluating the curriculum and teaching programme
  • Being part of a supportive team is vital, you must enjoy growth, change and driving continuous improvement
  • Excellent and effective communication skills, both verbal and written are necessary
  • Strong understanding of Te Whāriki
  • A provisional or fully qualified ECE teacher with a current New Zealand practicing certificate
  • A current first aid certificate
  • Most importantly enjoy having fun and working with children!
  • You need flexibility to work between 7.30am–5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
