Sat shri akal, I am married and I have an adorable little girl. I a graduate diploma in ECE level 7 and bachelors in science and mathematics degree. My ideology is based on respect and care for children and whanau. I really love children and listening to their stories, especially those that come out from children’s beautiful mind. I believe that children learn best through meaningful play that encourage the discovery and excitement which create the problem solving skills and individual growth.
Kiora, I graduated from Auckland University with a Graduate Diploma in ECE and a Bachelors in Science (Social Sciences) degree. My philosophy is based on respect and I believe that if we respect each child as an individual and support them to respect themselves, others and the environment, then we are giving the future leaders of our society the tools to create a happy, peaceful and productive world. I am the mum of a precious little girl and love spending time with her. I am interested in outdoor pursuits, especially playing badminton with my husband. My aim is to help create all those special moments of your child’s learning which they will be able to keep for a lifetime.
I have over 20 years of international experience in early childhood education. After studying for the Diploma of Early Childhood Education at the Manukau Institute of Technology, I later graduated with a Bachelor of Education from the University of Auckland. In 2008 we opened the first of the TopCare Early Childhood Learning Centres and a second is due to open in 2014. I am currently studying for a ‘Master of Educational Leadership’ and expect to finish by 2015.
I am passionate about teaching foreign languages at an early age and am actively campaigning for Kiwi children to learn Chinese in early childhood education centres.
Bula vinaka, I am married with a beautiful girl. I am from Fiji and completed my certificate in ECE level 3 and diploma in ECE level 5 from the New Zealand Career College. I strive to model respect, patience and care for children and adults I come in contact with. I believe that every child is a unique individual and they are a gift from God. Children learn best through meaningful play that encourages curiosity, discovery and problem solving which allows individual growth and development of a positive self image.
