Tēnā koutou we are Tonia and Murray Salt. We have been the proud owners and operators of James Street for over 20 years now. James Street has been the second home for our whānau and many others over this time. We are passionate about providing a warm, nurturing, and natural environment for all ākonga, whānau and kaiako. Our own ākonga have been an integral part of this journey for us and will often come and spend time helping to maintain our beautiful setting.
Our priorities for ākonga, whānau and kaiako are ensuring that they feel a strong sense of Ūkaipōtanga and that they have the space and time to grow and become the best that they can be.
We both have a background in education with Murray having a Bachelor in Science (Hons), a Diploma in Teaching and 18 years of teaching experience in High Schools. Tonia has a Diploma of Teaching ECE and over 30 years of teaching experience. We are both actively involved in the daily running of James Street, and plan to be for many more years to come.
