Meet the Team

Bruce and Miranda Major

Welcome, Haere Mai. We took over Donald Street Pre-School on the 27th of August 2012 to continue the vision of Cath Marr who opened the Pre-School in 2006. We live above the Pre-School with our 2 daughters Millie and Imogen. We are actively involved in the day-to-day running of the pre-school and really enjoy providing support and being part of the teaching team.  

Michelle Tyler

Welcome, Ni Hao, Kia Ora. I am Michelle and I totally love being at Donald St Monday to Friday spending time with all the children and their families. Children and the way they learn are a never ending source of fascination for me. I have an added interest in special needs children and how they learn, having had three myself.

Moira Stewart

Kia Ora to you all. I am Moira and have been an Early Childhood teacher for 21 years, previously a Primary teacher. Donald Street Pre School provides a head start for our children, with a stimulating and caring environment. I enjoy being here from Monday to Thursday with great children, families and supportive colleagues.
