Ko Taupiri tooku maunga

Ko Tainui tooku waka
Ko Te Awamaarahi tooku marae
Ko Ngaati Amaru tooku Hapuu
Ko Tainui tooku iwi
Ko Rangi Tapara ahau

I started working at Campus Creche in 1995. I grew up locally and I have three sons, all of whom have enjoyed their early childhood journey through Campus Creche.

Providing a place where aroha and manaaki can help tamariki to thrive in their uniqueness is very important to me.  Tamariki come to us as a taonga of their whaanau, tupuna, hapu and iwi and should be supported to be who they were destined to be.  

Head Kaiako of Whekii

I started working at Campus Creche in 2001. I am originally from the Czech Republic, and I have been living in Hamilton since 2000. I have a strong passion for nurturing infants and toddlers. 

I believe teaching from the heart encourages strong relationships with tamariki and whaanau, giving tamariki a sense of belonging to feel safe and loved. Outside teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, travelling, skiing, going to the beach and practising yoga. I speak English and Czech.

Head Kaiako of Koowhai

I started at Campus Creche in 2014. I grew up in Kirikiriroa/Hamilton, but whakapapa to Kawhia, where I spent lots of time as a tamaiti. I have four tamariki of my own and I enjoy road trips with my whaanau, waka ama, and sports and I am on the Board of Trustees at my children’s school. I speak English and te reo Maaori.

I started at Campus Creche in 2021. I grew up in Taranaki, although whakapapa to the north. I am an amateur and professional boxer when I am not teaching. I speak English and understand te reo Maaori well, but I wouldn’t call myself fluent.

Fraser Centre Manager

I started working at Campus Creche in 2011. I grew up in the Wairarapa, living in Masterton with my whaanau, going to school and enjoying playing hockey. I moved to Hamilton in 2003, married and raised my children here. I enjoy walking my dogs, reading, and going to the gym in my spare time. I speak English and some te reo Maaori.

Administration Team:

Finance Administrator

I started working at Campus Creche in 2021. I grew up in Hamilton and spent seven years living in Perth in my 20s.
I manage, allocate and monitor financial resources to help CCT ensure transparency, compliance, effectiveness, and accountability.  Specifically, this is performed through processing fee payments, managing debtors/creditors, bank and other associated fiscal reconciliations, completing payroll responsibilities and generally fulfilling financial compliance/reporting responsibilities.

Jan Ilton
Enrollment Administrator/Receptionist

I started working at Campus Creche in 2023.  I have lived locally in the Waikato with my family for over 25 years now.  I manage the enrollments and administrative support at Campus Creche and am really enjoying my time here.

I love to spend time with my family, dogs and going camping.


I am originally from Russia but have been living in New Zealand for the last 12 years, and I am still learning English. I have three children, a husband and a cat. I look after the tidiness in all buildings at Campus Creche, Hillcrest and Fraser. I am the cleaning lady boss.
