At BestStart Te Atatu Peninsula, we have a highly experienced and stable teaching team offering quality education and care for our children. Our Kaiako are committed and enthusiastic professionals providing supportive and nurturing educational experiences and care for tamariki from 3 months to school age. We offer sessions, short days and full days, both part time and full time over the week. We invite you to come and see how we can help your child become capable, confident, independent and ultimately ready for school.

The spaces at BestStart Te Atatu Peninsula are designed with separate indoor and outdoor areas for infants, toddlers and children to cater to their developing learning needs. This allows us to provide new learning opportunities for all age groups. Our families love that our Kaiako have expertise in their chosen age groups.

Tui - The infant Kaiako form close, nurturing relationships with families and we follow each child’s home routine. We create a calm and loving place for our youngest children. 

Kea - Our toddlers are exposed to sensory exploration and are encouraged and supported to develop social skills and independence through group and independent play.

The transitions between the rooms are carefully planned to ensure every child is developmentally ready and move with their friend groups.
