Who We Are

Our Team


I have worked at Mt Roskill Early Childhood Centre since April 2012. Prior to this I have managed two other centres. I have a Bachelor of Teaching ECE and am Fully Registered. I am a proud westie where I live with my six children. I am passionate in giving children a safe, fun, active environment where they can grow and develop in readiness for life. 


I have a Bachelor of Education ECE obtained through Wellington University. I am the proud mum of four children. I believe that learning is a life long journey and we never stop, therefore why not learn from our tamariki who are expert learners. I believe in ‘tuakana-teina’ relationships in which learners become teachers and teachers become learners. I thrive on the opportunity to learn and teach alongside the brilliant tamariki of Mt Roskill Early Childhood Centre


I have three children, I moved to New Zealand in 2010 to be closer to my family. I strongly believe “the love of family is life’s greatest blessing” I absolutely enjoy working at Mt Roskill Early Childhood Centre and it is a pleasure to spend quality time with your children, and spend time creating an environment of fun for them.

“A child has a special way of adding joy to everyday”


Kia Ora. My name is Jade and I graduated in 2016 with a degree in teaching. Since then I have been relieving at various centres working toward my full registration. My interests are hiking, swimming, rock climbing as well as any geeky hobby you can think of. My passion behind teaching is simple. I want to make sure every child that comes into my centre understands a few things. I want them to know that they are valued, they are respected and they are contributing. If a teacher can show a child these three things daily, the learning will flow almost automatically.
