Benefits of a Career with Kindercare
To support you in your role, making on-going professional development available to you is a continued focus and priority at Kindercare. You’ll enjoy opportunities to gain new skills and extend your knowledge base through access to current research.
Professional development for Early Childhood Teachers includes the opportunity to attend workshops run by our curriculum team, as well as workshops facilitated by professionals in the wider early childhood education sector. You’ll also benefit from our Curriculum Planning Support team’s on-site mentoring.
Teacher Registration Support:
Gaining your Early Childhood Teacher registration is a significant achievement so we make every effort to assist you with this process. Kindercare pays the cost of your provisional registration, full registration and registration renewal.
A Registration Supervisor supports permanent employees through our “Advice and Guidance Program”, working through the process of provisional, through to full registration, with you.
Support also includes providing teachers with resources to assist them with the planning and implementation of their day to day early education program - an essential aspect of teacher performance requirements for full registration.
With childcare centres in Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington and Hamilton, you’ll have the opportunity to broaden your experience by working in different locations, with different teams, in centres of different sizes.

Having centres in four major regions also enables us to accommodate requests for staff transfers, whether they are for personal or professional reasons.
And, with a team of early childhood professionals working in an advisory capacity to the teams in the centres, staff have the option to apply for a management role at centre director level or other roles within the centre services team.
Our Support Office in Auckland is the central point for our support and administrative teams – including accounts, marketing and communication, centre services support, maintenance, support services and Cherry.bytes.
Then there’s Regional Offices in Wellington and Christchurch, also offering opportunities to link in with support functions to our teams in the centres.
