About Us

Ariana Paul - Squiggler (GradDip Mgmt, PGDip Mgmt, MBA)
Ariana and husband Tama Potaka have three small children - so they understand the complexities of working and trying to be good role models and parents (actually, it's a myth!) By trade, Ariana has worked in education for over 15 years and her colourful background ranges from selling t-shirts at the Otara market to book publishing, running charitable events and pro-sultancy! She loves fitness and health as well as keeping her mind and hands active and is excited to be able to transfer her life skills, experience and passion for learning and children towards Squiggle programmes.

Jeanne Kerr - Squiggler (Ngaitai, Ngati Porou)
Jeanne and Warren Tata are passionate about helping children to achieve and reach their potential. As typical kiwi parents to three young children they know all about juggling the demands of work and everyday living and are dedicated to ensuring their children have the necessary tools to meet the challenges of our complex world.  Jeanne has over 15 years working in the education sector but also has experience as a mum, a school netball team manager, a transporter of children to sports, and telling children to stop playing minecraft and come to dinner!! Jeanne loves chilling with the whanau and going home to Torere. ‚Äč
