Meet Amy & Brad

Jumpstart is proudly locally owned and operated by Brad and Amy Fale, the parents of four busy, active kids.

Both Taranaki born and bred, Brad and Amy are heavily involved in the community and have a passion for sport including rugby, cricket and basketball.

Brad and Amy opened the original Jumpstart on Barrett Road in 2007.

With two young boys at the time, they 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 they have opened three more Jumpstart centres around New Plymouth, while also adding ActiveKids School Holiday Programme, Streamline Swim Academy and Elite Pathways Basketball Academy to their network of family-focused businesses.

All four of the Fale kids were lucky enough to go through Jumpstart. Like any parent, Brad and Amy wanted to provide their children with the best possible early childhood education experience and this is what drove them then and continues to do so today.
