Staff

We are committed to building a team of passionate and dedicated staff. All of our permanent teaching staff are qualified and registered or undergoing registration, and we operate with far stronger ratios than Ministry regulation.

Our aim is always to strive for continuous improvement and offer a warm, friendly and caring environment, where children's well being is paramount. We will provide our children with the guidance, time and space to develop and grow.
