Baylie began her ECE journey in April 2017, starting out as a reliever before moving to a full time position in September of that year. In January of 2018 she started studying towards her bachelor of teaching ECE at Wintec, and is all set to graduate at the end of 2020. She began working at New Shoots Matamata in January 2019.

“I chose ECE because I love being part of each child’s individual growth and development throughout their early years, and supporting their learning through enriching experiences.

When I’m not at New Shoots I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and my daughter Maia. I love going on adventures and will never say no to a road trip.”
