Our centre vision is to be at one with child, whānau and community. We have a beautiful learning environment and create special spaces that spark interest and curiosity for our children. We believe children learn in their own time and at their own pace, (ā tōna wā) and follow their lead to support them in their learning journey. 

Our centre is a place where families are always welcome. We value the diverse cultures of our children, families and staff and work together with families to celebrate and acknowledge the values and traditions. Te ao Māori and tikanga practices are woven throughout our bicultural curriculum. 

We believe imagination and creativity is the source of all human achievement. Children at our centre lead their learning and have the freedom to explore, take risks and challenge themselves. We take the lead from children's interests and extend their learning, developing their curiosity and enthusiasm to learn. 

Our perfect candidate will be able to tick the following:

  • Experience and/or passionate about working with infants and/or toddlers
  • Knowledge around freedom of movement
  • Holds a Level 7 ECE qualification with current certification
  • Confident with individual and group assessment and planning
  • Bubbly and nurturing personality
  • Flexible working hours
  • Passionate about teaching young tamariki
  • Great time management
  • Fantastic communication skills and a real team player.

While we navigate through the current pandemic, we have seen the team unite and support one another more than ever. We are so proud of the incredible online learning our teachers have carried out with BestStart@Home and believe the extensive support network we provide our teaching teams with has enabled us to provide positive engagement opportunities with our families and whānau.

When you join the team, you not only receive extensive support from our teams but you will also receive a competitive wage, childcare and healthcare discounts as well as plenty of learning and development opportunities to see you continue to thrive in your career.
