“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 have graduated with Master Degree of Educational Leadership from Auckland Univesity of Technology in 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.
“My educational philosophy is founded on the strength of the relationships between the children, parents and staff built on Trust, Security, Respect, Caring and having fun. I believe that children learn best when the teachers and parents work together and the children are engaged in experiences that are stimulating and interesting.
THE MISSION OF THE TEACHING
“TopCare practices reflect the multicultural heritage of New Zealand’s community. Topcare’s mission is to educate our children to be the leaders of the future. We treat our tamariki with passion, love and knowledge.”
