Work with us!
JOIN THE REVOLUTION, SPREAD THE SEEDS.
Did you grow up with the freedom to roam, climb trees & squash mud between your toes? Are you keen to support kid's today having similar experiences?
Then WE WANT YOU!
We are looking for Supervisors, Assistants, Volunteers, Parent & Teen Helpers!
Dates: DEC 20th - 23rd & JAN 10th - 28th
A unique part of the Conscious Kids Holiday Programme philosophy is our passionate staff who make the very best free play facilitators. They have a vested interest in making sure the day is amazing for the children and they have the most experience caring for and managing children. If you are enthusiastic and positive about being in the outdoors in all weather conditions and genuinely enjoy being actively involved in children's play then this could be the role for you.
Supervisors, assistants and volunteers will play a crucial part in the running of the session. You will be given training and assistance to ensure you are comfortable and learn the expectations and safety measures we place on supporting children.
We are indirectly affected by the Covid-19 health order or mandate. Meaning that in order for us to effectively and safely deliver our programs for children and to continue our work with/alongside schools, Auckland Council and other partners, vaccination is an expectation for our onsite staff.
At Conscious Kids, our programs are designed as an antidote to the fast-paced technology-filled world many children now inhabit. Our children’s lives are so filled with structure, this program aims to give them a break from instruction and allow them to play as they like, for as long as they like, within a framework of respect for those around them and the environment. The programmes will go ahead in all weather!
A bit about our programmes...
Holiday Programme: Runs every school holidays from 9-3pm. Simply a day spent in the outdoors, playing freely. We provide basic equipment suitable to exploring the outdoors: ropes, tarpaulins, bungees, compass, magnifying glasses, knives (to be used with supervision) and some art equipment.
One Day Programme: ODP runs one day a week during term time, allowing kids to escape their normal routine and take their learning outside the classroom. Like our holiday programme, the One Day Programme offers a 100% nature-based experience that gets Kiwi kids outside, developing social competence in mixed-aged groups, self-confidence in their problem-solving abilities, and awareness and sensitivity to the environment through unstructured/ free play in nature.
Junk Play: Essentially a pop-up adventure playground made entirely of a wide range of rescued materials used as 'large loose parts', which would otherwise be destined for landfill. At Junk Play the kids design and construct their own play spaces, limited only by their imaginations!
