Kia Ora. My name is Elizabeth and I have been the Professional leader here at NBCP since 2005.  I believe with all my heart that Early Childhood years are the most important years for all tamariki as they lay the foundation for future learning and life. Working with whanau to enable strong learning outcomes for all tamariki is what I base my teaching practice on. When I am not teaching or running the preschool I love to spend time with my own family and friends.

Bachelor of Teaching – Fully Registered

Hi. My name is Rose. I have lived on the North Shore all my life and have been at NBCP four years. Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I consider it a privilege to be part of children’s learning as they grow, develop and discover the incredible talents they have each been given. I taught middle school for 7 years and later was introduced to early childhood after I had children and haven’t looked back! I have two sons and when i’m not judging lego creations or playing hide and seek, I enjoy finding a cosy place by myself to read a book or work on a crossword.
