Hello/Kia ora

I am Asha, Centre Manager of Tipu Montessori. I am fortunate to be among a team of dedicated and passionate teaching professionals and to serve a community that appreciates and values the education we provide.

I am from India, New Zealand has been my home for the past 18 years. I am an ECE teacher with full registration. My experience in the teaching field includes ECE, Secondary, Primary School and as well as adult education. Currently I am enrolled with the North American Montessori Centre for a Diploma in Montessori Education.

As educators our duty is to respect children’s individual strengths and provide them the freedom of choice in their work/play. Our responsibility is to support and promote their love of learning. I believe that the greatest gift an educator can receive from a child is his/her trust.

At Tipu Montessori we place great importance at building relationships with parents and whanau.
