Our People

Deb Rewi, Centre Manager - Acting
Danna Reichenbach-Elms , Assistant Centre Manager/Team Leader Under 2s

Danna is a bit of a favourite of our parents and children. Parents who have had their babies with her continue their relationship with her right up until their children move off to school. She’s the perfect under 2s teacher and loves what she does. She’s the teacher who will ring you when your child takes their first steps and celebrate with you when they sleep through the night for the first time. Her manager role sees her leading the team and attending to general administration requirements. An interesting fact about Danna - she can’t cook!

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).
