Our educators are passionate about teaching your children. We love to discover your child's interests and extend them through offering a stimulating and challenging learning environment. Te Whariki is our guiding document and is central within our daily practices.
Centre Administrator - Robyn Lamont
Kia Ora. My name is Robyn. I’m originally from Durban, South Africa but moved to east Auckland when I was 21, and have now recently moved down to beautiful Pokeno. I have a little boy called Jaxon who attends Urban Explorers and loves it here and has made lots of new little friends.
In my spare time I paint, draw children's’ illustrations along with lots of outdoor adventures with our Jax.
I’m really enjoying working here and getting to know all of the children & their families & being part of such a special team :)
Fantails Room head Kaiako - Kathy Livingstone
I’ve lived in our community for 23 years. I have four adult children and five grandchildren. I have worked as an ECE teacher since 2001 and with a variety of different age groups.
I enjoy spending time with my family & riding motorbikes with my husband. I am looking forward to spending time getting to know your children and you, and meeting their individual needs. I believe all children are capable and competent when provided with a trusting and caring environment through quality responsive relationships and an inclusive nurturing philosophy and environment.
