Vinita Prasad, Programme Owner

Vinita and her husband  Vinay became the proud owners of sKids Sandpit in January 2017. Vinita graduated from Auckland University Technology in 2010 with Bachelor of Education (ECE).  She has over 7 years of teaching experience working for Counties Manukau Kindergarten Association.   With her many years working with children Vinita decided to take the opportunity to take her teaching skills into a new direction as a sKids franchisee.

Vaseva Maharaj, Programme Assistant

Vaseva’s previous work experiences range from being a high school science teacher, an English language facilitator to Japanese students, and a banker to being a checkout operator. With these range of experiences she has learnt to juggle being a mum and also to adapting to the changes in her work environment. However this did not let her love of being surrounded by her own kids and nieces and nephews diminish. From keeping them company, teaching them, to letting them entertain her with dances and stories.  She always wants to be that positive influence in any child’s life and to be the help that moulds them into the person they will be. Her strong attributes-ummmm my voice but not as in singing.... she loves reading and storytelling, art and craft and drawing or painting. She may be a mum to her two beautiful kids but she really is a child at heart.
