I thoroughly enjoy working with the staff and families to give the children the best possible early childhood experiences.

I have been in the ECE sector for 20 years starting as a play centre Mum , student and finally obtaining my Diploma in ECE.
I believe that all children need a beautiful place they can call home. I strive to make Rainbows aesthetically pleasing and somewhere parents feel is an extension of their home life.
I will provide opportunities for all children to participate in, extend their current knowledge, build social skills and most of all to have fun. I look forward to learning with and alongside the children and whanau about the fruits of the spirit and how we can instil strong Christian values in every aspect of their lives.
