At Sunshine Childcare we know that our kaiako are our greatest resource. We maintain a minimum of 80% qualified teaching professionals throughout both centres.

We believe in building the teaching capacity of our Kaiako. We do this by having staff that are in training (through various organisations) to become qualified Early Childhood Teachers. We provide them with a fully qualified mentor to assist with their training and to support them to reach their goal.

We also value experience in addition to qualifications. Some of our kaiako have years of experience and are not qualified and we support this decision.
