Brenda Cooper

Education Team Leader | Bachelor of Education (ECE)

I come from a background in early childhood where I have worked in all areas of the sector –  starting in childcare, then training to be a kindergarten teacher followed by playcentre and home based. For me home based is like coming home – it fits well with both my personal and professional philosophy about what is best for children. I am able to follow my lifelong passion for young children as well as working alongside and supporting other adults who are also working with them.

My husband and I have three sons and I am now the lucky Grandma of two wee girls who are the light of our lives. I also have a number of “large” fur babies – a Mainecoon called Merlin and two Great Danes – Jake and Ruby. My passion for children is only equalled by my passion for animals. I also have chinchillas, birds and tropical fish.

I look forward to having the opportunity to engage with you as part of the PAUA Whanau.
