Tena Koe - Hello and Welcome

Pitter Patter Education Centre is Feilding's newest Early Childhood Centre.
We have two centres PPEC 1 is the 'Infant and Toddler centre' and PPEC 2 is for the over two's. Our PPEC 2 has just been built and is architecturally designed specific to our needs.

We have a full license to teach children birth to five years old. The centre is staffed at ratios that are higher than required by the Ministry of Education. All staff are qualified or are in training. We welcome full time or casual attendance.
We offer quality care and educational programmes in a fun environment.




Pauline
Kia Ora, My name is Pauline and I am the owner/manager of Pitter Patter Education Centre. I teach in Pitter Patter 2, however I also go over to the 'Infant/Toddler Centre' (PPEC1) at least three times each day and if needed I teach there.
I have been teaching now for 24 years and I am passionate about Early Childhood. It is awesome observing the children at our centres and being part of their Education. It is so rewarding when our 5 year old Children go off to school with the skills that they learn from us. I really love my job.
In my spare time, I enjoy eating out, music, travel and being with my wonderful family.
