Bright Eyes Staff

Centre Manager

Kia Ora, my name is Jasmine I’m the Manager at Bright Eyes Early Learning Centre. I have worked in Early childhood for over 15 years. I have graduated with my Bachelor of Education from AUT. I came to Bright Eyes 12 years ago, starting in a teaching role then moving into Management. I am passionate about providing an environment where the child is at the heart of everything we do here at Bright Eyes. I am totally committed to ensuring I provide the type of environment that children feel happy to come to each day and we live up to our philosophy. I am passionate about Reggio and see my role and my teaching team to be a co-learner and collaborator with the child not just an instructor. I value the environment as the ''the third teacher'' and value the need for children to have uninterrupted exploration, play and learning. I value children as individuals who are curious about the world. I love being part of Bright Eyes and the amazing community we have I value the need for children to have a home away from home a place for our children and our families to grow and learn together. I am so blessed to have a job I truly love and have an amazing team to grow with. I am grateful to be able to share my love and passion at Bright Eyes each and everyday.
