I enjoyed my job
Teacher (Former Employee) –  Auckland City, Auckland25 November 2019
I am a certified teacher and enjoyed my job. I would like to try something different and only work part time and enjoy my home and my grandchildren. Dealing with young children full time is getting stressful to me. This is the reason why I want to try something different with flexible hours.

Mediocre employers
Teacher (Current Employee) –  Auckland City, Auckland18 September 2019
Offer a token amount over minimum employment requirements, ie: sick days. Minimum is five, Beststart offer ten to full-time teachers; considering the nature of ECE teaching, it's not enough.

Pay is poor. Experience isn't valued.
Only happy to offer internal PD.
Reluctant to employ extra teachers despite increasing rolls.

Supportive Organisation
Centre Manager (Current Employee) –  Auckland10 December 2018
Supportive employers who genuinely care for their employees. So many great career opportunities which you are supported along the way by inspiring people. I started as an unqualified reliever, become a qualified teacher, head teacher and now centre manager! Awesome support and the organisation offers many benefits such as regular PD, mentoring support for beginning teachers, subsidized childcare and health insurance! Great decision joining BestStart, I have never looked back :)
Pros
The knowledgable people
