Thank you Jonny4Higher for our first fence mural!
We are pleased to announce the appointment of our Head Teacher. Our qualified and registered Head Teacher comes to us with 10 years’ experience and has held Centre Director and Head Teacher roles at a variety of early childhood centres across Auckland. She is currently employed at another centre and will join us late July to ensure time for our parents and children to pop in and meet her prior to opening day. Here are some words from her.
“ I came to New Zealand in 2006 and studied for my Post Graduate ECE qualification at Auckland University. I loved making learning fun and exciting so ECE was a natural career choice for me. Having my own two little ones has cemented my belief that quality childcare can help to set children up for life.
My personal teaching philosophy has been greatly influenced by my passion to create environments that support children’s learning through natural and open ended resources, and also to create an environment that feels like home. Where children are nurtured and cared for with respect and kindness.
This part of my practice has also been inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy that values the child as strong, capable and resilient rich with wonder and knowledge. Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it.”
