Kia Ora I am Michaela, hopefully most of you have met and know me. I currently teach in the Kauri room and have been working at Tree Town since Sally first opened the premises on Wilson Street in 2004.
I am taking on the new role of Operational Manager to support Sally with the ever increasing responsibilities of the Manager’s role. I will be managing matters such as staff appraisals, leading senior meetings, internal reviews and strategic plans, ministry of education updates and regulations to name a few.
Sally first employed me as the team leader for the under two area where I initiated the primary caregiving philosophy.
I have since gone on to get married and have three daughters, during which time I have been back and forth at Tree Town in different capacities.
In those years I have worked with all the different age groups, had various leadership roles and have seen Tree Town grow and evolve.
I know and share Sally’s philosophy and passion for quality early childhood education care and look forward to my new role with enthusiasm and passion as always.
For those of you that do not know me, I look forward to getting to know you and your Whanau.
