Centre Manager - Albany
Hello and Kia Ora, my name is Jalaine Armstrong and I am the Manager of Learning Tree in Albany. I have been in Education for 12 years with a prior background of 14 years in home based Nannying. I have always had a passion for education and the care of children but after having my own family I returned to Tertiary education and obtained a Bachelor of Teaching (ECE). I am deeply inspired by Reggio to develop beautiful environments and safe, meaningful care for our children.
Married, with 3 wonderful daughters and 3 beautiful granddaughters, I enjoy reading, scrapbooking and am an avid quilter. My family and I are involved in Motorsport and enjoy travelling around the country with our car.
I look forward to meeting you and being part of your families journey.
Assistant Manager - Albany
I’m Levon and I am the Assistant Manager at Learning Tree Albany. I’m originally from South Africa and moved to New Zealand in 2003. I could not imagine living anywhere else but this beautiful Aotearoa.
I have a Diploma of Teaching (ECE) and have worked at Learning Tree since I graduated. I have had many different roles over the years but the love of children and providing excellent care and a robust programme has remained constant.
I am inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach to provide the children with beautiful learning environments in which children are able to grow up as confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body and spirit, secure in their sense of belonging, secure in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society.
I enjoy working alongside fellow teachers who are passionate about the role they play in the lives of children, their own learning journey as well as those of the children in their care.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, swimming, watching movies and travelling.
I look forward to getting to know you and being a part of your family’s journey
