Meet the Team

Meet the team –  the teachers who are such an important part of our centre. Their goal is to provide quality care for you child and all our teachers are committed to working in partnership with parents to meet the needs of each child. Our teachers provide a stimulating and caring environment in which each child is respected as an individual, treated with acceptance and kindness and positively encouraged and assisted in their endeavours.

Robyn Little – Teacher

Hi, my name is Robyn.  I graduated from the University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Education (Primary school specialisation).

I have been working with the over two year olds at Blue Frog for a year before starting here at Spotted Frog.

I believe children have a natural curiosity for life and learning.  My vision is to provide an environment where children feel nurtured and safe to give new learning and experiences a try as they each discover their own unique gifts and talents.

Valerie Hamilton –  Teacher

My name is Valerie.  I’m a wife of 28+ years and a mother to four grown children.

I’ve worked in early childhood for more than 15 years and completed my Bachelor of Teaching (ECE) in 2009.

My goals as a teacher are to encourage children’s autonomy and initiative as they develop new skills and knowledge through play and teacher-lead activities.  I aim to enhance their self-worth, well-being and belonging as they learn with and alongside their friends.
