OLIVE TREE EDUCATION AND CARE
We Have Amazing Teachers
Our Teachers Are Caring and Enthusiastic.
We choose teachers who genuinely love working with children, who consider teaching to be a calling or vocation, not just a job. Our teachers cultivate a sense of belonging and security with your child by building a quality relationship with them.
We Maintain High Teacher to Child Ratios.
The Ministry of Education stipulates that each centre must have a ratio of one teacher to every ten children for children over two years old and one teacher to every five children for children under two years old. We manage our teacher numbers to ensure that we exceed this minimum requirement. This ensures your child doesn’t get ‘lost in the crowd’, but is seen, heard, noticed and known by our teachers.
We Have a High Level of Qualified and Experienced Teachers.
We are committed to having qualified and registered teachers in our centre at all times. We have developed a culture of excellence in our teaching team by hiring quality teachers to begin with and then creating strong professional development and mentoring opportunities for them.
Several of our teachers gained their qualification at Bethlehem Tertiary Institute, whose programme incorporates Christian perspectives. Their teaching approach is deeply rooted in the transformational values, which create the special environment in Bethlehem Early Learning Centres that children thrive in.
“I have been so impressed by the way in which the teachers have come to know my daughter so well in such a short space of time. They comment on aspects of her personality and actively look for areas to challenge her.” ANDREA
