Qualified Teacher (BestStart Mangorei)

BestStart Educare

Join us at our beautiful centre, BestStart Mangorei!

At BestStart Mangorei Road we really get to know each child as an individual, unique in character, interests, culture and spirit. When we know our children well we connect, engage and inspire, supporting them to be all they can be.

See me: For who I am, my culture, my whanau, my traditions, my celebrations, values and beliefs, what’s important to my whanau.
Know me: What is my personality, my likes and dislikes, my strengths and uncertainties. Embrace and celebrate me for who I am.
Teach Me: Now you can see me and you know me, how can you teach me?

Our learning spaces - Our three learning spaces provide opportunities for each child to develop, grow and learn as an individual. Transitioning through to another learning space occurs as we respond to the strengths, interests, abilities and needs of the individual child and their family.

An rare and exciting opportunity has arisen to join our teaching team!
