My name is Anne and I have been working at the centre since 2007 when it first opened. I am originally from Wellington, New Zealand and I enjoy going back to New Zealand on occasion to see my family, though they all live in Auckland. I come from a relatively large family with three brothers and a sister, most whom have married and have their own children. I have been married to Travis since 2007 also, we have no two legged children but one beautiful four legged Boxer called Jazz. I have been working in the early childhood field ever since I left school in 1989. I went to the Wellington Collage of Education where I successfully completed my Diploma of Teaching in Early Childhood Education. In all this time I have discovered my passion lies in the under 4’s. I love fostering and supporting a child’s independence. In the room I aim to be co-constructor of knowledge with the toddlers, working alongside them in their learning journey. I understand Toddlers to be focused on the here and now, impulsive, energetic, determined and they like to gain control over their world by testing limits. I look forward to getting to know you all.
