Hi, my name is Lisa and I have lived in the local community for over ten years. I am originally from England and I qualified in NZ with a Diploma of Teaching in 2012.
I have a number of years teaching experience and I am very passionate about early childhood learning, I love art and encouraging young children to express themselves visually and verbally. I have two boys who both attend Mahurangi College and I am very privileged to be a part of Educare Warkworth.
Hi my name is Barbara Lois Bambery, I am a Registered Early Childhood Teacher
with a Bachelor Of Early Childhood (Teaching).
I have been working in Early Childhood for many years and enjoy working with this age group. Through noticing, recognising and responding I am able to plan and extend children and implement Te Whariki The Early Childhood Curriculum.
I have one son Jordan who is a qualified builder working in the busy city of Auckland,
where I was also based working in Early Childhood, I now look forward to working
locally. I look forward to getting to know the parents/whanau, children at
Kia ora, my name is Sandra Pearce but most people call me Sandy. I recently moved from Bayswater to Matakana. I'm married and have three adult children.
I practiced as a registered nurse for many years before a career change. In 2011 I graduated from AUT with a Bachelor of Education (ECE). I have been working full-time since mostly with infants and toddlers.
I'm really excited about joining the Warkworth teaching team and getting to know the children and their whanau.
My name is Stacey and I have recently joined the whānau at Educare.
I was born in Hamilton and moved to Auckland with my family when I was 7. I have lived in many places in Auckland but Papatoetoe will always be my home.
At the beginning of the year I moved to Matakana with my daughter to be with my partner of many years who is a Dairy farmer. I am loving the fresh air, the quietness, the relaxed approach to life but not the flies haha.
I look forward to getting to know you and working alongside you and your whānau to do what is best your tamariki.
I am very excited to be part of the Educare Warkworth team as the nutritionist and part time reliever. Originally from the UK, I have lived in N Z since 1991, moving to Warkworth in 2002 with our four children. I was attracted to the small Warkworth community. I have for many years thought my perfect job would be to cook in an early childhood centre. Being able to cook for, and work with children, is like a dream come true.
Before starting my training as a cook, I worked in an early childhood centre in the UK. While my children were little I provided home-based childcare for friends returning to work. I have owned two food businesses in Warkworth. I am very much looking forward to cooking and caring for your children and hope to also be able to pass on to them my love for cooking.
