TOPIC: Kaiārahi/ Kaiako Matua/ Kindergarten Coordinator role available - Kapiti Coast

Kaiārahi/ Kaiako Matua/ Kindergarten Coordinator role available - Kapiti Coast 1 month 2 weeks ago #947

Te Rāwhiti Kindergarten has two kindergarten locations on the Kapiti Coast, 45 minutes from Wellington. We are looking for an enthusiastic and flexible individual to lead our friendly and committed team from 2021 onward. We are looking to grow our kindergarten and playgroup sessions even further to meet our growing waiting list.

Ideally, this role as Kaiārahi/Kaiako Matua/Kindergarten Co-ordinator includes a teaching component. This is 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 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 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’s 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.

Ideally, the successful applicant is available during November and December 2020 to enable a handover. From January, the size of the role is 0.7 FTE if it includes the teaching component, or 0.5 FTE if acting in the Co-ordinator capacity only.

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 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.

Applications close 5pm Wednesday, 7 October 2020
