New Zealand Tertiary College

Take your love for children and turn it into an exciting career

In response to the need for an ever-increasing number of qualified early childhood teachers, Kindercare Learning Centres established Kindercare Early Childhood Teachers College 25 years ago. The name was later changed to New Zealand Tertiary College and it was one of the first professional early childhood teacher education training providers.
Today, it has the sound reputation of being a professional and specialist private training provider, offering students the opportunity to complete an Early Childhood Degree or a certificate course, through a variety of study modes.
