Lilliput Preschool is a privately owned and well-established small whānau centre. We provide a friendly and supportive working environment; where each kaiako is highly valued, respected, and their well-being is our priority. We pride ourselves on relationships that are built on trust, respect, and open communication with our tamariki, whānau and each other. With 26 tamariki and 4 kaiako in the preschool area, there are plenty of opportunities for tamariki to explore, learn, discover, and develop agency over their own learning.

We have an exciting opportunity in the over two-year-olds area, for a full-time qualified kaiako to join our Lilliput whānau. We are looking for a loving and kind kaiako who has true passion and energy for teaching and caring, so all our tamariki can flourish as they explore, learn, and play at their own pace. The kaiako must demonstrate initiative and be confident and passionate about providing a high standard of teaching and care. The kaiako needs to be confident to maintain an environment which builds respectful relationships with our tamariki, whānau, and kaiako, have knowledge of Te Whāriki and current research, is committed to on-going development, and who is a team player.

The kaiako we are looking for will have:

  • A NZ teacher qualification, current ECE teaching registration and a current first aid certificate
  • High level of initiative
  • A genuine passion, joy, and energy for teaching young tamariki
  • A kind, friendly, enthusiastic, caring, and calm personality
  • Proficient communication skills
  • The ability to establish relationships based on trust and respect.
  • Ability and flare to write learning stories, and use these to plan and promote children's holistic development
  • ICT knowledge
