Nikki Reynolds – Centre Owner and Teacher
My name is Nikki. I am the ‘hands-on’ licensee and owner of Mairangi Bay Preschool. I have been engaged with children since the age of 13, initially taking a very ‘formal’ approach to teaching as a Dance and Drama teacher. However, I found my real passion was with young children, therefore studies lead to my graduating with a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education in 2001. I then opened my own centre.
My individual interests in the connection between Active Movement and brain activity opened a further teaching opportunity for me. This was with North Harbour Sport and SPARC. I was very proud to have Discoverys nominated as a finalist in the ECE initiative award two years in a row. I still retain this passion and strive to provide an environment where agility skills are acquired daily.
I believe we should never stop co-constructing our learning.
This should be what excites us!
