Our People

Melissa Nicholas , Centre Manager
Regan Marsh, Team Leader Over 2’s

Regan is known as Whaea Regan in our centre. Regan is all about whānau/family and creating a place that both you and your children can feel at home in and part of.  Our Whaea Regan is a bit of a softy with a crazy sense of humour, she oozes aroha (love), manaakitanga (hospitality/kindness) and whanaungatanga (connection/relationships). Whaea Regan has stepped into the Team Leaders role in our Kauri Room while Melissa is on parental leave.

‘Whaea’ (fa-ee-ya) basic translation of this Māori word is ‘aunt’, but in the context of a learning environment Whaea can be interpreted as ‘teacher’ (female).
