While we have achieved high qualified teacher ratios, we have also made a commitment to overall staffing to ensure we exceed Ministry of Education guidelines for child to teacher ratios. The guidelines are 1 teacher to every 10 children over the age of two and 1 teacher for every 5 children under the age of two.
Our centre offers excellent ratios for under twos—1:4 and over twos—1:6, as well as a Kaiāwhina Housekeeper and a Centre Administrator. This helps provide the best possible outcome for your child at Golden Kids Inc Early Learning Centre.
Sessions at our centre start with a minimum of two six-hour sessions per week.
