Fiona Zhang-Centre Manager

Kia Ora, my name is Fiona Zhang. I have worked in Early Childhood for more than 10 years. Working at Superstart each day is never the same. I feel very privileged to be working alongside such a professional, passionate and supportive team here.

I enjoy having fun with the children while also sharing their learning journey alongside them. I believe children learn best through play and education at their own pace, level and ability and most importantly when they feel safe and secure in trusting relationships.
