The Centre employs full-time qualified and registered teachers. Support staff include part-time students, a manager, an administrator, a chef and kitchen assistant.
Our teachers come from many different backgrounds, including Māori, Chinese, Indian, and Samoan, so you'll hear these languages spoken at the Centre.
This Centre is also used as a practicum venue for Early Childhood Education students from recognised learning institutions, including MIT. These students ensure that teachers keep abreast of current thinking and teaching practice, and in turn, the students benefit from the experience of Centre teaching staff.

Any review in policy is a collaborative approach between families, teachers and management. Family/whānau opinions are seriously considered. Consultation on any changes to fee structure takes place six months prior to implementation. This provides the opportunity for dialogue and discussion about the rationale for any increase.
