Before & After School Care Gulf Harbour

We established the Serene School Care Centre to help parents and children in the Whangaparaoa area with their out-of-school needs. We accept children pick-up/drop-off from 6:30 to 8:30 am and 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm.

Serene School Care Centre is conveniently within walking distance of Gulf Harbour school, which makes drop offs and pick up easier for families living in the area.

Our Team

Serene School Care, Gulf Harbour, Whangaparaoa is owned by Faiza Junaid who has previously served as a teacher-aid at Gulf Harbour School. Faiza holds a bachelor degree from overseas and a certificate in “Assisting children with special needs” from New Zealand. After working in various childcare centres in Auckland, Faiza decided in 2017 to set up her own centre so Serene School Care was established. Her main aim has always been to provide a quality environment where children could grow and learn new skills.

Faiza has three children. Her boys attend Gulf Harbour School and actively participate in the centre’s activities with other children.

Faiza loves music, dance and performance. She believes these activities benefit children to gain self-confidence and develop a healthy attitude towards learning. She is very hard working, passionate and loves spending time among children. In her free time, she enjoys watching movies and reading books.
