Debbie

I am the Lead Teacher in the Kaitiaki Room. My role here at C&R is to be a supportive and active team member who   embraces and accepts themselves for who they are and support tamariki to reach their full potential. I am passionate about my work because I love what I do and am naturally committed to working towards positive outcomes which motivates me to do my best in any situation. I hold strong beliefs in building positive and respectful relationships with others.

My passion is nurturing tamariki in the development of social and emotional competency and I am also interested in neuroscience.

Kia ora, I have 10 years ECE experience and in the past 4 years have been focussing more on infant and toddler development.

 

My passion lies in creating secure attachments where pepi feel safe to venture out and explore whilst also supporting early language and conversation with even out youngest pepi to foster a reciprocal relationship of understanding.

Kia ora koutou, I am so lucky to be a kaiako at Christopher & Robin in the Kaitiaki rūma. I have worked in early childhood for 9 years. I love seeing our tamariki grow in their self confidence, mana, and social skills.

Tamariki bring who they are, and their knowledge from their whānau and tupuna with them and I love to learn about everything that makes them who they are.

 

Our tamariki and so precious and special, they are our taonga. Outside of work I love to play tennis and travel.
