Strong Team, One Purpose

Our people feel inspired every day, because every day we can make a difference.

Our teams are close-knit, supportive and love to have fun. We have a hugely diverse team but all come together to with our common purpose - That’s what makes our work environment really special.

We aim to ensure our teams feel engaged and valued. We create fun, supportive work environments that celebrate effort and success along the way. This has resulted in significant employee loyalty, with many of our people having worked with us for a number of years. And, as a charitable trust, BestStart embodies a strong sense of corporate social responsibility. This contributes to building loyalty and pride in our people.

We see this inspiration every day in the extraordinary effort our teams go to to provide outstanding experiences for our tamariki, from organising Regional Rippa Rugby competitions, amazing matariki celebrations for the whole community to those small and meaningful moments when a teacher helps a child truly unlock their spark. These are all moments we are collectively proud of at BestStart.
