We have an exciting opportunity for a leader to join our team in Matatā –  operating hours 8.30am–3.30pm

About us: 

Central Kids Matatā is structured on the idea of an ELC with the benefits of a Kindergarten: We are a small mixed-age centre where tamariki share the same learning space to learn alongside each other in a child-led, play-based, well-resourced learning environment.  

We are passionate about creating spaces that are warm, inviting and well thought out to enrich the learning experiences of our tamariki.

Central Kids provide:

  • A commitment to putting children at the heart to all that we do–Ko ngā tamariki te pūtake
  • A commitment to ensuring te reo Rangatira not only survives but thrives in our organisation
  • A commitment to upholding our obligations as partners of Te Tiriti o Waitangi
  • A commitment to Rautaki Ahurea – our cultural strategy
  • Access to high-quality professional development opportunities
  • Ongoing professional support to maintain quality teaching practice
  • Generous leave entitlements and non-contact/professional time per the Kindergarten Teachers', Head Teachers’ and Senior Teachers’ Collective Agreement.  

About you:

  • A motivated, enthusiastic leader, who is able to put current theory into practice
  • Demonstrated knowledge of ECE business operational requirements eg: staffing, funding and licensing criteria
  • Able to demonstrate a working knowledge of Te Whāriki
  • Committed to te reo Māori me ona tikanga, te tiriti o Waitangi and te o Māori
  • Able to work within a team who have a strong commitment to supporting the social and emotional growth of tamariki
  • Committed to creating/maintaining strong, possible relationships within the wider community and outside agencies
  • Able to demonstrate a growth mindset, be open and willing to change that enables us to continue providing high-quality early education to all tamariki who attend our services
  • ECE qualified, hold current certification, a current first aid certificate and be entitled to work in NZ.
