Working for Evolve

Amy Mathieson

Centre Manager

Moreporks Pegasus

After working as a Ballet and Early Childhood teacher while studying for my ECE qualification, I quickly moved through positions to find myself as a young Centre Manager, within a year of graduating! I moved my career to Evolve in 2015 after 8 years managing elsewhere and have not looked back. Evolve is innovative, inspiring and the future opportunities are exciting! Recently I have opened a new preschool for Evolve, Pascals Pegasus. This journey has been so amazing, I was so lucky to have such creative involvement!

Viv Stark

Regional Manager


I joined Evolve Education in November 2014 during the very exciting time of the start-up of a new company. I love that it is a fast paced and innovative working environment. We never stand still and are always looking for ways to improve. We have growth pathways for our staff providing opportunities to fulfil their potential across our Evolve group. Our Evolve values are integral to my leadership and it is an honour to be part of the families who entrust their children with us each day.

Pascals Albany

I am of Taiwanese heritage. I moved to New Zealand in 2007. I joined Evolve part-time in 2015, eventually taking over the full time position. I have a Level 5 Certificate in National Cookery and Level 4 Certificate in Patisserie. I cook for up to 125 children daily. I enjoy cooking for children but the best part of my day is having funny conversations with the children about what they have been doing during the day.

I found the environment and those who share it to be calm, peaceful and welcoming. The RIE and Reggio philosophies are clearly evident and align beautifully with my own belief in respectful relationships. My year has seen great change and growth including moving into a leadership position with the support and encouragement of management. I feel confident in our team and am excited for the journey ahead.

Centre Administrator

Active Explorers Kaiapoi

In 2012 I returned to New Zealand with my husband, son and twin girls from Ireland and began working as an administrator in a preschool, ultimately becoming their administration trainer and support person. My passion is dealing with families/children and excellent customer service so when the opportunity arose to do this again with Evolve in 2016, I jumped at the chance to work with such a dynamic company. As Evolve continues to grow, I look forward to the expanding opportunities awaiting me!
