Our teachers are qualified or training to become qualified in early childhood education. Our teachers are passionate and caring professionals who offer respectful guidance for tamariki through responsive interactions to ensure quality teaching and learning. Our teachers are life long learners and all participate in professional development and reflective practise as a vital part of our pedagogy at Creative Cubs.
We value our teachers as our biggest asset and provide a caring, supportive and positive environment where we can grow and learn together.
