Our team

Our core teams have qualified and registered teachers who with qualifications, work experience, valued relationships with other service providers and ongoing professional development deliver excellence in the education and care of all the children who attend.

House 11  provides education and care for children aged 0 to 2.5 years. There are 6 qualified teachers who make up the core teaching team.

House 13 has a core team of 6 qualified registered 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 so to support all children 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.

Links between home and centre are important for us as teachers as well as the child but as a community based centre we see parents as the first educators of children and endeavour to work in partnership with our whānau/families.

We provide an interesting and challenging programme for our children. 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. This gives children a sense of belonging and makes learning fun.

We run an active movement programme each day which involves using the courts and grounds of Taieri College, and we venture out on trips into our local community either walking or using the Mosgiel loop bus. This gives children the opportunity to make links with the community we live in.

We support children and whānau preparing for the transition to school through support and guidance.

    Governance Committee

    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.
