Ideally, this role as Kaiārahi/Kaiako Matua/Kindergarten Co-ordinator includes a teaching component. This is however negotiable.
As a Waldorf kindergarten, it is part of Te Rāwhiti’s special character to provide a gentle, nurturing and child-centred early childhood experience, to support the individual development of imagination, will and confidence.
Registration as an early childhood teacher is ideal but not essential. If you are a state-registered ECE teacher, Waldorf training and/or experience is preferred, but again not essential, as you will be working with experienced and supportive colleagues. It is essential that applicants are open to learning about and working with our special character, Waldorf education.
For the management elements of the role, applicants need to have a genuine interest and skill in process improvement and be able to manage HR, administration, finance and compliance functions. Our ideal candidate will combine strong management and team building skills with the ability to be an active and open listener.
Most of the children attending Te Rāwhiti Kindergarten go on to join Te Rā Waldorf School (state-integrated primary school). The Raumati South kindergarten shares their site location with the school. The kindergarten Kaiārahi/Kaiako Matua/Co-ordinator will therefore be a part of a large faculty of kindergarten and school teachers.
The size of the role is 0.7 FTE.
It is a unique role and can be adapted slightly to suit the right individual, so if you are interested please contact the office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and an application pack.

Do you want to spend one year abroad and have a life changing experience?
Newton Dee needs your help. We are a charity in Scotland that supports adults with learning difficulties and we are looking for international volunteers who want to stay with us for a period of 12 months.
Our volunteers mean so much to our way of life, and we cherish the cultural diversity that they bring. These young volunteers who join us often tell us about how much their year meant for them. Volunteering here is not just about helping someone else, it is also learning about yourself, meeting challenges and growing with the experience.
