We have two very passionate and highly experienced teachers, both of whom are fully qualified and New Zealand registered teachers. Our staff are committed to providing your child with a wonderful and warm environment to learn and play within each day. We recognise that in these early years the foundations of your child’s learning ability, attitude and character are built, and we are here to help bring out their best qualities during their time at Headstart.
Robyn Parker: B Tchg (Primary)
2020 will see me enter my 20th year working in education. In that time I have worked with children from ages 2 to 14, in a variety of early childhood and primary schools (both public and private). I have had the pleasure of working alongside children as they start their school life, in a play-based learning environment; where literacy and numeracy are intermingled with the important work of play! Developing children’s sense of wellbeing, confidence and who they are, in parallel with early literacy and numeracy skills, is my “zone”.
Marilyn Ruwhiu: Dip Tchg (ECE)
Being involved in the growth and development of any child is what I am passionate about. Building authentic, loving relationships with children enables the child to feel safe and nurtured and therefore become who they are truly meant to be.
Anna Wilson: B Tchg (ECE) – currently on Maternity Leave
Why I love teaching is an easy question. Who would not want to inspire our future generation to enjoy learning and question their theories through a fun and active day of play. No day is the same, no hug is the same. Each child is unique. And I agree with the statement “children should have two things, one is roots and the other is wings.”
