Founder & Managing Director

Kia Ora and welcome to Lulu and Max

We are a small family based company that started out as a popular family friendly cafe and photography studio for several years before I decided to go back to my passion in working more closely with children and families in the Out of School Care and Recreation (OSCAR) sector. My husband and I are dedicated to providing quality childcare and in 2018 opened an ECE centre in Rotorua with family. 


I have been working with children for the past 20 years and believe an OSCAR programme should be set up as a 'home away from home', providing nurturing care where play, quality experiences and meaningful relationships are part of our everyday programme.


I live in Haumoana, with my gorgeous family and understand the challenges of balancing career with family life. To get work/life balance right, I enjoy spending time with my family, eating good food and catching up with friends.
