I am the Centre Manager of Magnolia Tree Whatawhata and I have been in Early Childhood Education for over 15 years.
I am the team leader in the Pūrerehua Room, as well as the Centre Assistant Manager.
My passion for teaching is with the under twos. I work with a fantastic team of like-minded teachers who are enthusiastic about learning alongside our tamariki, and working collaboratively with parents and whanau.
I look forward to getting to know our families and to be part of your children’s exciting journey here at Magnolia Tree Childcare.
I have built my own personal philosophy around respectful relationships with children. Allowing each individual child with the space, love, and support to learn at their own pace, offering primary care (infants), tender/meaningful care moments, naturally paced motor development, free movement, and uninterrupted play.
I am a teacher in the Purerehua Room. Whatawhata is my Tangata Whenua (born and breed here). I also have a background in Te Kohanga Reo.
