A Message From Our Centre Manager

Welcome to ACG Remuera Early Learning Centre

Michell Ryan

Michelle Ryan

Kia ora parents and whānau,

A warm welcome to ACG, Remuera!

Originally from the beautiful city of Cape Town, I moved with my family to New Zealand in 1999 to continue my teaching studies at AUT. Here I completed a Bachelor of Education degree, specialising in the Montessori philosophy. This provided me with a strong foundation from which to work in any environment, particularly with the Reggio Emilio practice, where I am able to utilise my skills and expertise to the best of my ability.

I have worked with many different philosophies, deepening my strengths and understanding of children’s development. I am a strong believer in the wholistic development of the child, allowing them to grow at their own pace alongside an unhurried practice. My teaching experience has shown me that children have the ability to reach their potential when in the right environment. It is one of my goals as a manager to provide this to the children and families at ACG Remuera. 

I am passionate about mentoring and guiding teachers to gain their full registration, help them to become reflective thinkers and team building. I have had the opportunity to be a mentor, associate teacher and assistant manager in several Early Learning Schools in Auckland and am delighted to put these as well as my strong inter-personal and organisational skills, into practice here at ACG Remuera. 

I am blessed to be working alongside a wonderful and talented team of teachers and staff with whom I share the most important goal…to nurture and develop a child’s love of learning.


I look forward to being part of your child’s learning journey. 

Meet our team leaders

Amandeep Kaur 

My name is Amandeep Kaur! I am from Punjab, India and have been in New Zealand for 14 years. I have completed my Bachelor of Teaching from New Zealand Tertiary College, Auckland. I live with my husband, Tejinder, and we have a beautiful son Guraik.

My personal philosophy is underpinned by respect, creating a safe, warm and inviting environment for tamariki and their whānau. I believe in providing an environment that is challenging, stimulating and aesthetically pleasing that encourages our children to become confident and capable explorers.

I am greatly privileged to have joined ACG Remuera Early Learning School. I look forward to meeting all parents and children of our centre.


Manju Goyal

My name is Manju Goyal and I am originally from India. I have been living in New Zealand for the last 17 years.  I am married and have two children; one is 9 and the other is 13 years old. 

I currently hold two degrees; one is a Bachelor of Arts from India and the other is in Early Childhood Education from New Zealand.  I became an early childhood teacher because I am passionate about working with young children and believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a warm, safe, healthy, nurturing and stimulating environment to foster their learning and development. My personal philosophy for teaching and learning values is founded on the importance of respect, relationships and joy.

I love working here and I am very excited to meet you and your child.
