Preschool Teachers at Nestlings: Berni PringleWelcome to Nestlings Preschool. My name is Berni

My vision to create Nestlings comes from my desire to provide a quality environment where children will be nurtured and educated. Our Christian philosophy comes from my aspiration that children know they have a sense of purpose and that they are unique individuals and are loved by God, Jesus Christ.

I have three grown children and I am privileged to work alongside my youngest child Monica, who shares my passion for Nestlings. I am also blessed to have three adorable grandchildren.

We have lived in Tauranga for over 20 years and love what Nestlings offers to the community.

Nestlings Preschool and Childcare Teachers: MonicaHi, I’m Monica, I am privileged to share Mum’s aspiration of Nestlings Preschool

I am married to Ryan and have three lovely children; two daughters and one son, all of whom have been part of our Nestlings family.

My family keep me fairly busy with day to day life, we enjoy belonging to Grace Independent Baptist Church, where we have many friends.

I love being able to see Christian values at work within the centre. I look forward to welcoming you to Nestlings.

Preschool Teachers - Nestlings Bethlehem: SueWelcome, my name is Sue. I have been part of the teaching team at Nestlings for ten years.

Married to Steve, we have four grown sons, three live here in Tauranga and one has opted to live on the other side of the world in England, a great excuse to travel! I am also blessed with four grandchildren, three long awaited girls and one awesome boy.

Teaching early childhood is an exciting profession, no day is ever the same and it is this challenge that keeps me passionate. I enjoy the low numbers Nestlings Preschool and Childcare offer, as it gives me plenty of opportunities to work closely with individual children.

Please visit anytime to see Nestlings in action.

Preschool Teachers at Nestlings, Tauranga: AngelaHello I'm Angela and feel truly blessed to have been part of the Nestlings family for twelve years

My husband Ewen and I have two adult children, our daughter works and lives in Auckland. Our son who has recently married has made his life in Australia.

My commitment to early childhood has spanned many years but I continue to find it a valuable and rewarding career. Children inspire and motivate me to continue learning with and alongside them as I support their development.

The outdoor environment is my passion and Nestlings has an amazing space so come and see it soon.

I am married to Glen and we have two young children, our son is starting school and our daughter will be coming to Nestlings. We lived in Melbourne Australia for the last 8 years and have moved back to Tauranga to be closer to family, and to enjoy the wonderful natural environment. 

I love working with children in the early childhood setting, watching them grow and develop. I look forward to getting to know your beautiful children and finding out what interests them to guide their learning.
