Our Team



My name is Carol Milner and I am the Centre Manager at Millie’s House. My husband Patariki and I live in Lower Hutt and have four grown –up children.

I have over 30 years of experience in early childhood education working in both home-based and centre environments and upgraded my qualifications by completing a Post Graduate Diploma in leadership and Professional Development.

I passionately believe that for children to develop to their full potential they need to feel secure in their environment and have strong bonds with their kaiako (teachers). Early childhood is a vital period for the development of the social competency and physical skills that are pre-requisite for children’s further learning. Partnerships between parents/ whānau and teachers are the best way to support this development.

I have an ‘open-door’ policy to parents and whānau and appreciate any ideas, suggestions, comments you have to offer.
