Hi My name is Chloe Stone and I am the Centre Manager at Pascals Herne Bay.
I have been working in Early childhood education 14 years and have a strong passion and love for the early years. I believe that Early childhood is setting the foundations of learning in children and love being part of this journey. I have a Bachelor of Teaching and fully Registered teacher who has worked across both the under 2 and over 2 ages. I love the natural environment and also using our environments as the third teacher so creating beautiful Environments for the children to learn and explore in. I have been a Centre Manager for 6 years and love being able to work alongside passionate teachers to ensure they reach their full potential.
I have 3 young children Bonnie (4.5years old) Jay (2.5years old) and Esme (1 year old). My Partner and I live on a farm in Kaukapakapa and I love the mixture of a Rural home life but a busy city day life! As a mother myself I understand the importance of finding the right early learning environment for you and your whanau, That is why here at Pascals we have an amazing team of dedicated and passionate team members to be part of you and your child’s learning journey!

Hi I’m Steph Stehlin, Assistant Manager and fern room team leader. I live in the Ponsonby community with my partner Jaxon and we love getting out hiking and exploring the natural and beautiful side of New Zealand. I graduated from my bachelor in Early childhood education at the end of 2012 and worked with children of all ages between 0-5 years before finding my passion for infant education and care (0-2 years). I have a strong knowledge of the R.I.E approach and believe in and implement many aspects of this approach into the Rakau Room and teaching practice. I’ve been working at Pascals since January 2018 and absolutely love it!
