Hi, my name is Carol and I am the Centre Manager here at Noah’s Ark. I have been teaching in the Early Childhood Education sector for 15 years. I chose Early Childhood as a career as I enjoy caring for and educating infants, toddlers and young children. I worked as a teacher at an Early Childhood centre in Tauranga teaching infants and toddlers for eight years and then moved to the South Island where I continued to work in a centre in Ashburton for seven years. I then accepted the head teacher role at the centre, then moved into a management role which I did for over a year before moving to Wanganui and taking on the manager position at Noah’s Ark.

I enjoy being involved in professional development and have been involved in a range of professional development opportunities including quality early childhood environments, quality care and education for infants and toddlers and positive guidance, just to name a few. My other interests include walking, reading and spending time with friends and family.
