Nanase Hoskins has been on the Coast for six months and is loving her role teaching at BestStart Whangaparāoa.
What do you love about being an early childhood educator?
Being able to encourage our children to be confident learners.
Why is BestStart such an awesome place for children to learn at?
We focus on different intentional teaching opportunities for all children to support their learning goals.
What is your favourite thing about the new custom-built BestStart centre at Coast?
Our awesome team and large outdoor area!
You’re at Coast every day – what are the centre’s hidden gems?
A hidden gem when you forget to bring lunch and my go-to is definitely Umi Japanese kitchen! It’s got a wide variety and you get to choose your own sushi.
What are you looking forward to most this year?
Settling into our centre.
When you are not caring for Coast kids at BestStart, what are you doing?
Spending time with my family.
