Meet Amy & The Team
Jumpstart is proudly locally owned and operated by Amy Fale, Amy lives locally with her 4 children (all of which have attended Jumpstart Preschool).
Amy and her business partner opened the original Jumpstart on Barrett Road in 2007.
With two young boys at the time, she saw a gap in the market for a preschool centre with spacious indoor and outdoor areas where children could explore, be creative and learn and develop through play.
Since then Amy and her team have opened three more Jumpstart centres around New Plymouth, while also adding ActiveKids School Holiday Programme, Streamline Swim Academy and The Lab (an indoor sports facility) to the network of family-focused businesses.
All four of the Fale kids were lucky enough to go through Jumpstart. Like any parent, Amy wanted to provide her children with the best possible early childhood education experience and this is what drove her then and continues to do so today.
Through Jumpstart and her network of businesses, Amy offers financial support and services to local schools, sports clubs and charity organisations to help improve outcomes for children living in our community.
