If you’re searching for comfortable, nurturing childcare in Mataki Way, Glen Eden, Our Kids Early Learning Centre offers a striking view of the large, native trees and the hills of the Waitakere ranges from our location in Glen Eden.

NURTURING CHILDREN'S LIFELONG LOVE FOR LEARNING

At Our Kids Early Learning Centre, our main vision is to empower children’s sense of self and foster their ability to direct their own learning in a nurturing, open, autonomous, and child-centered environment.

The inside spaces of our Mataki Way childcare centre are thoughtfully designed to cultivate children’s curiosity and comfort in a respectful and homely environment. Careful considerations have been given to the aesthetics and natural elements to help instill a sense of belonging. The centre features a stunning outdoor area, with a strong focus on the natural setting where children will be encouraged to explore, learn, and grow in an environment that is both engaging and challenging.

At Our Kids Early Learning Centre, we have a vision of a childcare environment that cultivates mental, physical, and personal growth in children. We’re excited that our Mataki Way childcare centre is now open and we love that we can share our vision with the local community.

MATAKI WAY STAFF

Sarah Barry

Under 2 Head Teacher

Hi, I’m Sarah and I joined the Our Kids family in September 2019.  I hold a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) and I have been teaching for the last 12 years.

My passion is to foster a calm, relaxing environment in order to create opportunities for children to explore freely. I am influenced by the works of Emmi Pikler and Madga Gerber, and I teach with a respectful approach to care and education which forms the basis of my teaching philosophy.  I am constantly learning from the children by slowing down, observing the children and seeing them for who they are in order to build trusting, authentic relationships. Building strong relationships with tamariki, family and whanau is imperative and underpins all my work.

Outside of work I am a mother of 3 Children Olivia 16, Liam 12 and Mila 8. I am proud to be part of the teaching team here in the Glen Haven room where respect, patience and love are valued and encouraged.

Chynelle Pereira, Over 2s Team Leader at Our Kids Early Learning Mataki Way

Chynelle Pereira

Over 2s Head Teacher

Kia ora and hello! I Chynelle hail from India, the land of festivals. New Zealand became home to me in 2014 when I arrived here to complete my graduate diploma in Early Childhood Education from New Zealand Tertiary College. Back home in India, I completed my Bachelors in Sociology and History and my first year of Masters in History.

The passion for teaching emerged as I have grown up in a family filled with a majority of teachers. Watching them day in and day out inspired me to take it up as a profession. I’m glad to say that I enjoy and love every bit of it. I feel privileged to be part of an amazing team here at Our Kids, Mataki Way.

My philosophy and practice is moulded around a famous children’s advocate Magda Gerber where strong emphasis is given to respectful practice. I believe it aligns well with my beliefs of providing a stimulating, challenging yet safe and fun environment where children can naturally unfold their strengths and interests. I aim to nurture, encourage and support the children and families in the best way possible.
