Child Care Manager
My spark to work with children came from a very young age as I have been a major role model in my younger siblings lives, I have been super determined to fulfill that passion through early childhood teaching. As a career I find it so rewarding and every day is always different. I am also currently swim teaching for Northern Arena from baby levels right through to school age children and I strive to provide a safe & happy learning environment for all children.

Working with children is such a rewarding career, there is something incredible about seeing children play and watching their imaginations run wild. I love working with children and I am so lucky to be in a position at Northern Arena where that is possible.
I have been a trustworthy and reliable babysitter for many years, as well as being a part time carer for a disabled boy during the school holidays of 2015. In my last year of schooling at Orewa College, I was able to gain experience from a work placement at Kindercare Learning Centre.
I love drawing, painting, photography, creative writing and watching movies.Mission Statement:

I have been working with children since 2009 beginning in afterschool care and babysitting. I love seeing children develop and encouraging them further through play and creative activities. Cultivating a positive and nurturing environment for children to grow in is a rewarding experience for me.

Children who take medication on a regular basis must have
a signed medication action plan which allows us to administer this medication, such as Ventolin inhalers. No medication should be left in children’s bags.
We are committed to trying to eliminate child illness within Northern Arena. We ask if your child has any of the following symptoms you keep them at home until they have cleared:
Please do not be offended if you are denied access to the centre or you are called back during your workout if your child becomes distressed. We are only preventing the spread of illness amongst the other children and staff.
The centre has a daily register where you sign your child/ren in and out please make sure you remember to do this!
Under no circumstances can you leave Northern Arena whilst your child is in the centre. You may only utilise the gym, café, swim fit, group fitness classes and Gather Cafe (located at 1A Polarity Rise).
Please provide a change of clothing and feeders if required. Wet wipes and disposable nappies must be provided for your child. Please provide a named healthy snack, e.g. fruit, sandwich, raisins, cheese etc… and a drink for your child.
Due to some children's allergies we are a nut free zone. All food should be kept in your child’s named bag.
Please talk to staff regarding settling in requirements for your child. Each child will have their own settling needs and it is important that staff can plan with parents to meet these.
Please ensure that when you leave your child at the childcare they are wearing a clean dry disposable. If you specifically wish your child to be changed during their time with us please advise staff of this. Staff will make regular disposable checks, but unless you have provided us with a nappy then staff will not be able to change your child’s disposable. If you are changing your child at the childcare please use the change mat provided, not the floor. If your child is toilet training or is toilet trained, please tell a staff member of your child’s toileting needs. If you do forget your disposables, they can be purchased at reception for $2.
Please do not attempt to return to the childcare after the alarm has sounded. After you have evacuated we will meet you in the assembly area in the Northern Arena Car Park. In the event of an earthquake, staff will assist children to drop and cover and attempt to keep children calm, begin any first aid and wait for help to arrive.
The best way to get a feel for Northern Arena and ensure it is the right gym for you is to meet with a membership consultant who will take you through your options and find out which fitness membership is perfect for you.
