At a BestStart education and childcare centre, children are nurtured and cared for in a warm, friendly and positive environment by qualified and caring teachers. Our 68 Auckland centres have teachers who support children in creative and critical thought processes, providing experiences that introduce early concepts of maths, science, art, reading and other curriculum areas.
BestStart’s unique Be School ReadyTM initiative ensures that every child is fully prepared for school and helps them develop as natural, confident learners. Centres also offer the e-portfolio Storypark, allowing parents to access real-time information about their child’s learning.
20 hours free childcare is offered for 3 to 5 year-olds every week, with a range of session times available.
BestStart has the country’s most recognised Professional Guidance programme that supports teachers in acquiring new skills and knowledge, enabling us to be the best we can be, so children achieve great learning outcomes.
