OUR STAFF

 

We are lucky to have a team of long term, passionate, community minded teachers at Piha Preschool who have ongoing relationships within the community with past pupils and families and local schools.

 

The teachers are continuously up-skilling through professional development courses keeping qualifications current and within the need of the centre.
