Auckland Kindergarten Association has a long history in New Zealand in the Early Childhood Education sector, having been established in 1908 with the opening of our kindergarten at Freemans Bay.
We now have 107 kindergartens and four KiNZ centres, supported by our shared services staff at our office in Queen Street, forming our organisation, with a total of just under 1000 staff.
Ours is a bicultural environment, where the learning framework of Te Whāriki underpins all we do, and where the good of our tamariki (children) and their whānau (family) sits at the very heart of our organisation.
At AKA, we provide a safe and enriching early childhood learning environment where children can develop as confident and competent learners.
Our kindergartens offer quality Early Childhood Education (ECE) that is inclusive of the diversity of children, parents and whānau that attend.
Our Auckland-wide network of kindergartens are magical places where young Aucklanders get the very best start to prepare for school and beyond - building the foundations for a lifetime of learning.
Auckland Kindergarten Association (AKA) and KiNZ are always seeking enthusiastic, hardworking people for our Unqualified Reliever pool to work in casual or fixed term positions in our kindergartens across Auckland.
You will have the opportunity to work in dynamic environments alongside inspiring, passionate and supportive team members.
As you would be working in different kindergarten environments with different teams, you will also be flexible, adaptable and a confident communicator.
Above all, you will enjoy working directly with young children and be able to quickly build rapport with them. You will love to get your hands dirty and covered in playdough, sand, paint or mud, and you might even go home covered in glitter!
Whether you have had prior experience in Early Childhood Education or not, if you feel that being an ECE reliever is the right fit for you, apply now!
We will be running a recruitment process so this will involve if successful being interviewed and undertaking probity checks.
