Jo-Anne Edser

Kia ora!

My name is Jo-Anne and I am the Office Manager at the Centre.

My involvement with the centre began over 20 years ago when my son started attending daycare. With my banking and accountancy backgrounds, I was roped onto the committee and have been there ever since. I took on the Office Managers role when it became vacant in 1995 and have enjoyed helping lots of families from the area during that time. I believe early childhood education plays an important role in a child’s development and love seeing the children coming and going each day, and the occasional glimpses of what they are up to during the day as well! I have really enjoyed being involved in growing the centre to what it is now, and what it will become in the future, for all our children’s benefit.

I live in Inglewood with my teenage daughter, partner and our pets, and my interests include tramping, camping, reading, music and the odd live rock concert!
