My name is Val. I am a fully qualified and registered Early Childhood teacher who feels privileged to Manage and work alongside a passionate and dedicated team of teachers, here at Pukeko ELC. I have a strong interest in the Reggio Emilia philosophy which is based on the principals of respect, relationships, and community. I value children as strong, capable, rich with wonder and knowledge, and I like to share my knowledge of this with my Pukeko Team.
In my spare time I enjoy getting away on the boat and sitting on the back of my husband’s Harley Davidson exploring. I have two grandchildren to spoil and I love spending time with them.
