The Teaching Team



" It is an absolute pleasure being apart of many learning journeys, each unique and intriguing. I teach from the heart, excited about what each day will bring. Teaching is one of my happy places. I am grateful to be doing something I love. It is a truly rewarding experience to share.  "


"Teaching is really rewarding and challenging, its beyond anything  I can explain, that feeling I get when you see them running towards you, the love, support and appreciation I get from the families, the care and love I share with all the children is just priceless."



" Working with children and their families is a wonderful experience. It’s an experience that I have enjoyed for many years.

Watching your child learn and grow to their full potential is a very rewarding experience.

I enjoy seeing tamariki transform over their early learning period.

Early learning is for fun, laughter and lots of learning."


" Teaching has really pushed me out of my comfort zone and has taught me so much about what goes into teaching. It is so rewarding to see our tamariki learning and taking in what we teach, it makes me love and appreciate what I do."
