The opportunity

Within the MASH family we have a saying ‘we create the opportunity for children to grow and shape their futures – we are not a babysitting service’.  This underpins our belief that successful programmes are built and operated by people who really enjoy working with tamariki to support them to grow as unique individuals that will positively contribute to society in the future.  If you are one of those people who is dedicated to delivering this kind of service and environment, in a fun, exciting and stimulating context then owning a MASH programme franchise could be for you.
