Centre Director
Tadpoles Early Childhood Centre

Kia ora

My name is Cindy and I am very excited to be the Centre Director of Tadpoles…a brand new, purpose built, Early Childhood Centre which is owned by a private family (who are lovely to work with).

I have been teaching for 21 years and I started out in the primary sector. After many years in the classrooms, I gained positions in management, moving on to becoming a Deputy Principal of a very large south Auckland Intermediate school. I then decided to change to Early Childhood when I had started my own family. I have two boys, Nava who is 8 years old and Kyan who is 6. They keep me very busy which gives me a very good understanding of the challenges that working parents face. Therefore it is very important to me that we provide an environment that is your ‘home away from home,’ where children and families feel welcome, respected and appreciated.

I am very passionate about learning and providing children with experiences that will teach them the skills they need in order to become life-long learners. I’m thrilled to be part of such a dynamic, enthusiastic team who all love what they do as much as I do and I look forward to welcoming you to our Centre.
