I established Our Kids Early Learning Centre in 2008 following 17 years in the education sector. I hold a Bachelor of Education, (Teaching) (ECE), from the University of Auckland, and I am an experienced teacher, head teacher, and early learning centre manager. My passion is for quality in early childhood education, stemming from my years of study, experience and ongoing professional development.
I am responsible for maintaining the building and grounds at both Our Kids centres, liaising with the Ministry of Education and I’m responsible for developing policies and service plans for the centres. I have considerable experience with mixed aged grouping and both the Our Kids Glendene and Glen Eden centres have mixed aged licenses.
All Our Kids teachers are fully qualified early childhood educators and undertake regular professional development to keep them up-to-date with current trends in the early childhood education and care sector in New Zealand and globally.
