Are You Passionate About Childcare?
When a Kaiako takes on the opportunity of joining the Step 2 Growth whanau, they are offered a range of experiences. From the yearly appraisals that are undertaken between the kaiako and co-ordinator, they decide what they would like to focus on professionally in the coming year and the co-ordinator seeks out professional development opportunities that supports this. Kaiako have a say in all changes that happen, from the policy renewals to new procedures. Also, management is always on hand to support kaiako when they need it, whether it's help completing a learning story or finding new resources to support current interests.

What Our Educators Say
"I love that home-based childcare offers a family environment for not only children in their care but also their own children. I enjoy being able to educate children in smaller environments and in turn recognise individual interests more easily so I can ensure to extend their learning."
Mel - Renwick
“I have now been working for Step 2 Growth for over two years and in that time have enjoyed some fantastic professional development opportunities and the chance to attend presentations from leaders in the field of early childhood development such as Nathan Wallis. The encouragement and support offered from this company has helped not only me as an educator to grow and learn, but has also truly supported the well-being and growth of all of the tamariki and their whanau that have been involved along the way. I look forward to continuing my journey with Step 2 Growth and know both I and my children will continue to benefit from their proactive community-minded approach and their deep belief in equity of care and education for all.”
