Rachael Heron
Kia Ora, My name is Rachael and I am the Centre Manager of Kea Kids Buckland Road and I have been involved in the ECE education sector since 2000.
I feel very privileged to work with a team that is committed to providing quality education and care for our children. Here at Buckland Road we believe in being apart of our community and regular visits to our local rest homes, primary schools and local shops.
We believe that all children and families should feel a sense of belonging and enjoy the feeling of being at a home away from home within our centre.
