Naz and Elvis have a long-standing family history of owning childcare Centres.
Both Science graduates from the University of Sydney, they realised very early on how important it is to develop and foster the love of learning in each and every child.

Children are natural inquirers and understanding their dispositions is a great way to give them the support they need to kick-start their lifelong learning journey.
The focus on dispositions is to encourage children to acquire the skills to know HOW to learn rather than a simple transmission of particular bodies of knowledge. The benefit of this approach is that the acquired skills are transferable and give children the confidence and capacity to use these skills in every aspect of life from childhood right through to adulthood.
Dispositions can be described as learning inclinations, sensitivities to occasion, skills and patterns of learning – these are things like persistence, questioning,taking responsibility and cooperating.
Dispositions put the child at the centre of all learning.
The teachers at Busby Street Childcare are working with dispositional framework to analyse, describe and plan for the learning they see.
Activities are purely seen as a vehicle for the acquisition of dispositions to learn. For example… 5 children may be playing with blocks but the dispositions are varied and multi layered. The teacher may be working on colours with one child and the disposition of sharing with another child, whilst the third and fourth child are building relationships, and the fifth child is working on their perseverance.
Our Vision is "to work in conjunction with family and whanau to enable children to achieve their full potential".
We will achieve this by providing:
