Kia ora, my name is Gina Mahanga. I live here in Whangarei where I met my partner Cedric of 26 years. We have three beautiful children together Jacob, Justice and Carlos. I am a motivated, enthusiastic person who enjoys singing, dancing, playing lots of sports and keeping active.
I love working with a great teaching team who provide a safe, nurturing, caring learning environment where children learn and become confident, competent learners. St John’s Progressive Childcare provide great resources and space where tamariki grow and learn to develop their own individual learning experiences within their own time in the centre. Tamariki also form great relationships with their teacher, peers and whanau.
Previously I have studied with Te Tari Ora O Aotearoa and completed my first year. Due to family issues I felt strongly about my needs and whanau and felt they come first. In the future when the time is right I will complete my studies towards my degree. It is a privilege to be a part of St John’s Progressive Childcare Centre’s teaching team.
