Meet the Sunbeams Team

Dip. Teaching, (ECE)Centre Manager
Current First Aid Certificate

I was involved with the playcentre movement while my children were growing up, participating in their training programme, becoming a supervisor and later worked in day care while I completed my Diploma of Teaching.  After several years working in public kindergartens I had the privilege of setting up and opening Little Sunbeams in 2005. After 33 years in the early childhood sector I continue to enjoy being part of a dedicated team who love being and working with children, supporting them to develop and grow into the best they can be.

I have been working with children since 2003 and  finished training  with New Zealand Tertiary College in 2008.  

Since completing my studies I have been working at Little Sunbeams and love providing a stimulating environment that nurtures and challenges children preparing them for school.

 As a teacher I believe our job is special; we have a part to play in shaping next generation.  I look forward to working with your children.
