Tanya Holdem
Centre Manager

Tanya has a passion for early childhood education and the fantastic learning that happens with the under five age group. She has been involved in teaching for the last 26 years. Tanya has worked in North Canterbury for the last four years as well as living in North Canterbury. She loves being involved in her local community.

“I have had the opportunity to work with different ethnicity of children and professionals in the field of education; always learning something new to better myself as a teacher and manager and providing helpful insights into the different needs of children. I am a continuous learner and made a pledge to myself that I will continue teaching children for the hope of bettering their educational paths. I am eagerly anticipating the challenge of being an intricate part of your children’s future. I love to see the look on their little faces when they learn something new. Watching them work together and accomplish goals set for them is the most amazing feeling in the world. Knowing that I played an intricate part in that, gives me great pleasure. I am also looking forward to meeting the parents of all the children that I will serve and developing a positive close knit relationship with every single one of you. Trust is of utmost importance to me, both with the children and their parents. I have a supportive husband and three grown children of my own, who have taught me so much. I also have two grown stepchildren and three step grandchildren, along with two cats and one dog.

“To watch a child grow from a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly is the best experience ever.”
