ROLE: Teacher

Hello and Ayubowan. I have been working in the Early Childhood Sector for the last fifteen years and am a registered teacher with a Bachelor of Education (ECE). Working with the children, staff and parents I feel part of a big whanau. I appreciate all the relationships I have formed and strive to provide the best for the children in our care as they deserve nothing but the best.
