Some of the reasons to choose First Learners Shirley for your child's early childhood education

At Shirley First Learners we pride ourselves on...


Supervisor | Shirley First Learners

- Diploma of Teaching Early Childhood Education
- Fully registered Teacher
- Comprehensive First Aid certificate

I have been working as a teacher and supervisor at Shirley First Learners since 2007 when Linda bought the centre. My interest in education for under five years olds began after i had my two children. I believe families/whanau play an important role in their children's learning and development.

Building strong relationships with families/whanau and working together helps children to grow and learn in a fun learning enviornment which challenges them to explore and extend on their interests and curiosity so that they become confident learners.

In my spare time I love to take my dog for walks and also enjoy spending time gardening
