Hear from our current and past students about their experience of studying with us.


Amber Waho
First Year BTch(ECE) Student "It has been excellent being able to study through blended delivery as I have been able to continue with my work and family life and fit study into it as well. I have found the staff to be very supportive - they will go out of their way to provide assistance. I would recommend studying through Te Rito Maioha, it is like another family where the other students and staff support each other to reach the same goal."


Samantha Payne
Second Year BTch(ECE) Student

"I decided to study through Te Rito Maioha to begin my learning journey in early childhood. From the very start I was welcomed in to join the whānau and have never looked back since. Being a part of Te Rito Maioha has given me the opportunity to gain new knowledge and understandings of teaching and to apply it in practice at my centre. 

The lecturers have always been so supportive and make themselves available for any needs we may have. It is obvious that the lecturers are passionate about guiding us to become the best teachers we can be. Choosing to study with Te Rito Maioha was the right decision for me as I continue to grow on my bicultural pathway as a teacher."



Regan Reti
BTch(ECE) Graduate

“I decided to become an early childhood educator after truck driving for 8 years. Everyone is so encouraging and positive about having a male in ECE. Studying with Te Rito Maioha has been an amazing journey. During the course of my study I have gained confidence in speaking te reo Māori, tikanga Māori and sharing this with ngā tamariki and my colleagues. I am thankful to Te Rito Maioha for guiding me to be a passionate, professional and respectful educator. I am proud to be a positive role model to our children and wider community and I am looking forward to what the future holds.”
