Meet our Pipi Room teachers:

The Pipi room is for infants starting from 3 months old. The room has lots of space to accommodate the developmental stages of rolling, crawling and walking. The environment is designed to help our littlest ones explore and develop at their own pace. We work alongside parents & whānau to help build consistent routines so that it's an easy transition from home to Small Fries. We have a wonderful team of teachers who provide love, respect & quality care for all who come through our doors!

  • Joanne/ Team leader

    Kia ora, my name is Jo and I am very excited to be a part of the Small Fries team in the Pipi room. I have been teaching in early childhood for over 10 years and have a Bachelor of Teaching (ECE) and full teacher registration. My husband Trevor and I are originally from Wellington and are blessed with four children. We've been living in Auckland for over 20 years. I am passionate about the early years and believe an environment should be filled with an abundance of respect, positivity, care, love and laughter, where children are nurtured and able to grow and thrive into curious, confident explorers of their world! I am passionate about learning children’s home languages as well as learning my own children’s language of Samoan. I am excited to get to know our families and children!

  • Phoebe

    Kia Ora families and whanau, 

    My name is Phoebe Wang, it is a great pleasure for me to join the Small Fries family. I am a mother of two lovely children, a 9 year old boy and a 3 year old girl who’s here at Small Fries too. I have been working in early childhood education since 2014 as a fully registered and qualified early childhood teacher. I am passionate about providing children a positive, respectful and caring environment. It is rewarding to provide fundamental support for children growing to be confident and competent learners in their precious early years.

    Looking forward to meet you all in Pipi room.

    Kia Ora, Hello, 你好 Everyone,


    My name is Stella and I am an ECE registered teacher. I am so glad to join our lovely Pipi Room. I love children and I believe they are precious and unique. For under twos, I strongly believe that loving, trustful and respectful relationships are fundamental to our infants and toddlers’ development and learning. 

    Eight years ago, I came from China to New Zealand with my family to seek knowledge and experiences in early childhood education. Now we have all settled here and I am happy to be able to use what I’ve learned to better understand our children and give them and their whanau better support.”
