Pohutukawa Room (Under Twos)
Tui Room (Over Twos)
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.
My goal goal here at St John’s is to ensure that all of the children in the Tui room are recognised as individuals, their needs are met and that all of the teachers including myself work constantly in supporting the holistic development of the tamariki.
Ko Shirley-Anne taku ingoa. I am married with three children. I have been working in Early Childhood for the past 10 years. I hold a Bachelor of teaching in Early Childhood and have a passion and aroha for tamariki as I see them as a taonga (gift), to nuture and help grow into confident learners and become successful. I love to share my language, culture and to learn about other cultures.
I believe tamariki and their whānau bring a wealth of knowledge and experience with them. I believe in building strong whanaungatanga (relationships) based on respect and working together to build strong communities and a sense of belonging and cultural identity.
