Anita Bell – Assistant Manager

Posted on: February 1st, 2022 by Jojo's Childcare

Kia ora whanau,

My name is Anita and I am the new Kaiako and Assistant Manager here at Jojos.

I am a qualified, registered educator with over 16 years professional experience.

I am married to Mike and together we have 7 children aged from 17 to 28 years old. I have lived local to the area since I was 1 and attended both Waimauku Primary School and Massey High School. The area has changed over time!

At the heart of my teaching philosophy is the capturing of something I refer to as magical moments.

Unqualified Teacher

Hi I’m Shannon, a teacher in Pipi here at Jojos. I am in my second year of training towards my bachelor of teaching.
I have always had a passion for working alongside children to help them grow and develop at their own pace, I have been working in
centres for about two years but also have done volunteering whilst doing study. I believe each child is unique in their own way
therefore they need to be treated as individuals. I strive to get to know each child individually so I can cater to their needs.
I have three children of my own. Hunter, my youngest, is also attending Jojos. As a family, we enjoy fishing, gardening, and being
with family and friends.

I look forward to being part of your child’s journey here at Jojo’s.
