I really believe in the homely, family environment we have created at Oak Tree. A place where the children want to learn and families want to be part of. It is a fun place to work, and the longevity of the staff says it all.
My husband and I live in Warkworth and have two grown up girls. I love teaching pre-school children and have almost 30 years teaching experience, with the last 13 here at Oak Tree.
My personal philosophy of 'Great Relationships form the basis of great learning’ ties in very closely with the Centre’s Philosophy. We are here to love, nurture and encourage your child in their most formative years. Please share your hopes and aspirations for your child with us.
I live in Mangawhai Heads and enjoy the beach and tramping. I have a daughter who is currently overseas.
I have worked at the centre since 1997, and really enjoy the close relationships we have, with the children and their families.
I live with my husband and two children, in the Kaipara Hills, and really enjoy the rural lifestyle.
I am in my third year of my Early Childhood Training, and have been at the Centre for four years. I really enjoy the smaller numbers and the homely environment at Oak Tree.
