Fatema CROPPEDFatema Tashrifwala

Kia Ora everyone. My name is Fatema Tashrifwala and I am the centre supervisor. I have achieved a Graduate Diploma in Early Childhood Education from NewZealand, and an overseas qualification of Bachelor in Early Childhood Education. I started working at Kinderhaven as a teacher and just love being here.

I am confident that my years of working experience and my knowledge in early childhood will provide a safe and happy environment for the children.

I am a caring and fun loving person who is always learning alongside tamariki (children) and their whanau. Working with children is my passion. It is something which I have done all throughout my professional life, and I enjoy it. I look forward to working alongside you and your family/whanau.
