Kia ora, I am the Centre Manager of St John’s. I am a Qualified and Fully Registered Early Childhood Educator. I have been working in early childhood since 2004, a year after I began my training. I began my family in 2005 with the birth of my first daughter. I have now got two girls and two boys. Through being a mum my passion for early childhood education developed even more as I saw first hand the importance of it and the uniqueness that each child has! I feel very privileged to be managing a community based centre where the focus is on delivering quality care and education to our tamariki and supporting our community.
