“My journey at New Shoots began when we opened our new Ramarama centre a year and a half ago, it has been a great journey to be a part of. New Shoots is very much a heart centered early childhood provider and employer, you can feel it throughout the different levels of the organization with passionate teachers and leaders who want the best for tamariki. New Shoots is a ‘Place that feels right’ for both myself as a teacher and for children, a place that values their teachers and a place with supportive professional growth.”


New Shoots Teacher

“As a teacher at New Shoots for 7 years, their commitment to excellent education and environment is truly inspiring. From day one, I appreciated the beautiful classroom, playground, and natural environment. I have had many opportunities to develop my knowledge and skills through professional development, workshops, and conferences. The supportive and collaborative culture, and their inclusion of all cultures and beliefs made me feel valued, encouraged, and inspired.”
