Kia ora, My name is Kylee Stackhouse and I hold a Graduate Diploma in ECE and have been working in the sector since 2005. I have had experience as a reliever, a teacher, a team leader, Assistant Manager and now am lucky to have the opportunity to be the manager at this amazing centre. I am very lucky to work alongside such a wonderful team of dedicated and passionate teachers who strive every day to be the best for the tamariki in their care.
I believe relationship is key so getting to know each child and their whānau, and being able to play a significant part in their lives, is extremely important to me. I feel tamariki learn best in a child-lead philosophy where they can engage, explore and investigate at their own pace and can take ownership of their own learning, in a safe, supportive and challenging environment. I look forward to meeting you and your whānau soon.
