Vicky Chen, Head Teacher - Nursery

Kia ora, my name is Vicky. I am the head teacher of our Nursery room. I have been working in early childhood for over 10 years. I started my journey with the Lollipops Birkenhead team when I graduated. I think it is a gift to be part of this lovely team and to share the learning journey with our beautiful tamariki (children) and their whanau (family).

I believe all children should be respected and valued as socially and emotionally competent and confident learners.

Reshna Lal, Head Teacher - Preschool

Kia Ora, I am Reshna and it is great to work in our Preschool room.  I have passion, knowledge and experience and love working with children to build a better future.  I have worked in early childhood since 2011 and enjoy continuing my teaching and learning in an environment full of excitement, wonder and play.
