Childspace is seeking a passionate, peaceful and playful kaiako who will uphold our excellent standards. If you are looking to be part of a dedicated and innovative organisation, with plenty of professional development and scope for career advancement, then you could be someone we wish to talk with.

Our Northland centre is licensed for 30 children, with a team of eight kaiako, they have a strong value of whanaungatanga in this mixed age centre. Northland has a nature-focused curriculum that is genuinely child-led, with our ngahere hikoi programme to the bush across the road, secret garden to explore and the older children sleeping outdoors. Our kaiako are passionate about risk and resilience, rituals and tuakana-teina learning. Key teaching, a continuity of care approach and aroha are the foundations for teaching and learning.

This position is based in Wellington and is an opportunity to join our team of 50 teachers who work in four home-like, nature-based, respectful and creative spaces. Childspace values respectful relationships with tamariki, whanau and colleagues.

We are proud that we have 20% male kaiako at Childspace and we encourage and support male involvement in ECE. Serious applicants need to have a strong commitment and dedication to excellent standards and our profession to fit with our team culture at Childspace.
