Natasha (Centre Manager/ Kaiako )

Kia Ora. 

My name is Natasha Dmello. I am a qualified Early Childhood Educator with over 10 years of experience in the field of teaching and leading. I firmly believe that a leader leads by example and I strive each day to stay true to that belief through my practice both as a teacher and a leader. For me, learning is a never ending journey and ECE is a sector where you learn something new each day.


Working alongside families and the teaching team is my strength and I constantly work towards building my relationships with our families and teachers. Outside the centre, I dedicate most of my time to my  two little boys who teach me so much through their resilience, courage and playfulness. I feel blessed to have a husband who shares the same zeal and is an Early Childhood Educator too.
