Our core teams have qualified and registered teachers who deliver excellence in the education and care to the tamariki and their whanau within our Green Street community. This is supported by teachers and management who value qualifications, work experience, relationships with other service providers and ongoing professional development.
House 11 provides education and care for tamariki aged 0 to 2.5 years. There are 7 teachers who make up the core teaching team.
House 13 has a core team of 5 teachers, who provide care and education for children aged 2.5-5 years old.
We recognise the uniqueness of each child and their potential to learn and grow. Our curriculum, pedagogy and environments are focused on supporting all tamariki on their journey as competent learners and contributors in the world that they live in.
We work within a whanaungatanga framework of relationships, care, aroha/love and whānau/family. Teachers are intentional and actively provide quality experiences that extend and deepen children’s learning and future learning.
We provide an interesting and challenging programme for our tamariki. We offer a wide variety of experiences in a happy and stimulating environment where young children can learn and play with the support and guidance of caring and responsive teachers. Relationships are key to everthing we provide for our tamariki and we believe by making this our focus and theourtgh building on these foundations that our tamariki feel a sense of Tūrangawaewae and that this is their place to stand, they and their whanau are important here and that they belong.

Our committee is elected annually at the AGM held in April and is made up of parents who have children that are attending Green Street.
Their role is about governance, making sure that the over arching policies are being implemented and reflected in the centre and are there to support the good of the centre, children, teachers, and whānau/families collectively.
Our committee meets once a month.
