Spotted Frog Preschool opened in September 2015 at 41b McIntyre Road, Mangere Bridge and is located not far from the Auckland International Airport. Spotted Frog is a high quality, highly resourced centre with experienced, qualified teachers at a very reasonable price. Here are the profiles of our key staff members.
Mother and daughter team Teresa Johnston & Bee Hamlin have a wealth of experience and knowledge running early childhood centres.
Both Bee & Theresa have a strong educational focus and children are provided with a rich learning environment which is well planned with stimulating and challenging activities.

Teresa runs the administration side of the centre while Bee managing directs both Spotted Frog and another centre in Mangere Bridge, Tadpoles.
Bee says: "This modern centre is well resourced and staffed. We have sourced high quality resources to enhance the learning experiences of your child. Their day will involve structure, freedom and time to explore and direct their own learning interests.
I believe that every child is special and unique and as an educator it is our job to find these talents and develop them. I want every child to feel special and successful and leave Spotted Frog prepared for the next step in their learning journey."
Hello my name is Bernadette (Bee). I am a wife, to Gavin for 21 years and mother of 3 beautiful children, Nic, Georgia and Noah. We all enjoy the beach and spend most of our weekends in Whangamata. I enjoy keeping fit and play netball, run and walk with friends.
I have been a teacher for the past 20 years and have worked in Primary and Early Childhood Centres. While working in Primary I was a Deputy Principal and this gave me a great oversight on how an effective school runs and how children learn.
I believe that every child is special and unique and as an educator it is our job to find these talents and develop them. I want every child to feel special and successful and leave Spotted Frog prepared for the next step in their learning journey.
If you have any questions, about your child attending Spotted Frog, I'm more than happy to chat to you.

I am Bernadette’s Mum and look after the admin. I am semi retired and love the opportunity to be onsite, interacting with children and chatting to parents.
We run another successful centre, Tadpoles which is nearby in Mangere Bridge. Tadpoles is well known and popular in the community and has an excellent ERO report.
You are welcome to visit our centre and see our programme and philosophy in action.

We have an excellent, qualified team at Spotted Frog. We have sourced high quality resources to enhance the learning experiences of your child. Their day will involve structure, freedom and time to explore and direct their own learning interests.
We believe children are unique and it is our job to help each one discover their full potential by developing warm reciprocal relationships, building and extending their interests, developing and extending their concentration, developing and extending their skills, building strong literacy and numeracy foundations, challenging them to take responsible risks and encouraging them to be curious!
