Kia ora koutou, ko Ann ahau. I am one of the the fully registered teachers here at Wise Owl Early Learning Centre.
It was after the birth of my two boys (1988 and 1990) that I made the decision to have a career change and entered the world of Early Childhood Education. Initially I worked in the home based sector before moving to centre based, completing my Diploma of E.C.E in 2004.
Being a teacher and providing children with experiences that scaffold them is truly a privilege and each day brings wonder and learning for myself and the children I work with. Providing a safe, caring and supportive environment where children can grow and develop holistically as individuals is important to me.
I am very excited to be working as part of this teaching team, working alongside whanau to make children’s early years fun and full of curiosity and excitement.
