Jeanette Manu



Talofa Lava


I am so excited and so honoured to be given this opportunity to grow and help others become extraordinary professionals in our industry!!


In the 18 years I have been in Early Childhood I have learned so much from leaders of this profession and my journey with children has been such a gift and it has just made my life so purposeful and rewarding!


I endeavour to give back all that I have learned and I aspire to engage with teachers to be the absolute best they can be for our children. I live by the Whakatauki “It takes a village to raise a child” I believe that children are at their best when they are raised and influenced by all those around them and so we have a responsibility as professionals to engage, build and inspire relationships with Whanau and the community.


Currently I manage a centre of 130 children, I have 25 amazing staff that share my passion of providing children with love and support in the most important years of their lives.


I love coaching and guiding individuals who are self motivated and who share my passion for empowering children into the future.


I have a 22 year old daughter who has just completed her Bachelor of Teaching who I am extremely proud of and I have a 7 month old son who just delights me each and every day. I look forward to my future endeavours and working alongside our talented and gifted Kaiako to give the best of themselves to our future generations.
