The James Street Philosophy

Building foundations for life.

Every child is unique. We wish each individual to flourish. That’s why our aim is for each child to achieve the learning outcomes of taking an interest, getting involved, expressing points of view, persevering with tasks, and to take responsibility. We provide a warm, nurturing environment where children and their family/whanau can take part in responsive, reciprocal relationships. Read more

Kylie Bettridge – Preschool Team Leader

“Being part of James Street is very special for me.”

As a teacher, and Team Leader in the Preschool, I oversee the implementation of our daily programme, the teaching team, and covering teacher non-contact times. I enjoy reading, water-skiing, walking, and spending time with my husband and two children, Greer and Fletcher.
