My name is Sonya and I’ve been with Christopher and Robin since it opened in 2008. I head a wonderful centre and lead a great team of staff where we collaborate on projects and facilitate programmes that are quite unique and different to other centres ( Swimming lessons, project trips and school readers ) I love being a part of your children’s education journey and making a difference in their lives. My passions are gardening, sewing and spending quality time with my five beautiful grandchildren.
When you enrol with our amazing centre you will get to see my friendly face. I am Dorothy and I am the Administration and Office Manager for Potential Plus Education. I am grateful to be a mum to 4 Amazing children ranging from 6 through to 18. As a family I treasure my adventures with my kiddies and we love to travel to new destinations and immerse ourselves in culture. I have a background in case management and my passion for child protection which has lead me to my role here at Christopher and Robin ECC. I am very proud I get to work in a team who are passionate about supporting our families and building forever friendships with our children and their parents.
Hi my names Kylie, I've lived most of my life in whangarei and I'm a proud and busy mum of three beautiful kids. I enrolled my daughter here at Christopher-and Robin where she thoroughly enjoyed it. During 2015 I was invited into the christopher and robin whanau as a support staff. I have since left to welcome my third baby and have now returned with him in tow. During most of our weekends my older children play rugby, netball and both play league. I really enjoy working alongside children and watching their personalities flourish, I look forward to meeting you and getting to know your children
