Early Childhood Teacher, Kids’ Domain Early Learning Centre, Grafton, Auckland
WHO: Atsushi Ukito
JOB: Early Childhood Teacher, Kids’ Domain Early Learning Centre, Grafton, Auckland
Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood Education)
CAREER HIGHLIGHTS: "I’ve always wanted to work with children. It’s great when the children trust me and when I get good feedback from the children’s families. To be successful in this career, you need to get down to the children’s eye level."
BEST THINGS ABOUT UNITEC: "I was the only male in the class, so I always had great support from the lecturers. I think the work experience was the best thing about the programme. While I was learning, I could work in an actual early childhood centre. It was a good way to apply what we had learnt in class, and also learn other practical aspects of early childhood teaching."
