Information for Teachers

"What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people." Maori Proverb.

Natural Steps has a clear vision and approach, and our teaching team is integral to the successful implementation of this vision. It is our desire to support, develop, extend and promote the teachers that we employ. Every member of our teaching team is required under legislation to have a Diploma/Bachelor of Teaching ECE, or be working towards a full qualification.

As part of our commitment to providing continuous improvement in our centre, we have a pro-active and supportive approach to ongoing professional development for all our staff. This is how we ensure that our skills are relevant and current.

Teachers Registration, support and development is important to us. With our wealth of experience and knowledge we are well qualified to support teachers through the teachers' registration process. We do this using individual development plans created in consultation with each staff member showing specific goals clearly broken down into criteria for support. To ensure this is achievable we agree on what resources are needed and make sure these are allocated.
