As all of the kaiako at preschool are union members we will be attending a meeting organised by the union which is also open to the public and supporters. Protect our tamariki mokopuna! We don't want to see the early childhood sector, Kōhanga Reo and Puna Reo destroyed by a thousand cuts. For tamariki to have the best start in life they need great foundations and the best possible beginning to their education journey. That’s why teachers, parents, whanau and communities fought for two decades to win respect, recognition and pay parity for teachers in early childhood education. Now that progress is all at risk. The National, Act and NZ First coalition government has started making extreme changes in early childhood education. Their attacks include returning to bulk funding, potentially slashing the pay of tens of thousands of teachers, removing transparency, and risking children’s wellbeing by rolling back safety regulations. Come to this public forum to find out where our MPs stand on these issues. Have your voice heard and bring someone from your whānau or community who cares too. Let Della or one of the kaiako kmow if you would like to join us and we will let you know more detials.

We are looking at increasing our pool of trained kaiako for relieving. If you are trained and want work please get in contact via email [email protected]

Stand with early childhood teachers to save pay parity 08/04/2024

Please sign the petition to save ECE pay parity we have been fighting for many years to get this and some are still not able to pay this to teacher. If we loose this now will we ever be paid the same as thoes in Kindergarten who have the same qualifications as us.

Stand with early childhood teachers to save pay parity Teachers, parents, whānau and communities fought for two decades to win respect, recognition and pay parity for teachers in early childhood education.

Just a question is there still a community watch is the Bishopdale area. Cotswold Preschool and Nursery had its container and shed broken into last night. Nothing was taken but we wondered if there was a patrol if the could check our carpark at night.
