Caitlin studied a Bachelor of Early Childhood Teaching through Waikato University graduating in 2014. She began working for New Shoots in July 2018. 

“I love providing tamariki with enriching and stimulating experiences that foster their learning and development in a number of ways whilst allowing them to discover as much as possible on their own, through their innate curiosity and wonder. Resonating with the theories of Emmi Pikler and Magda Gerber, respectful practices, responsive relationships, care times and freedom of movement are at the heart of my practice. 

Outside of work I enjoy spending my time with family and friends, whether it be at motorsport, fishing, exploring the beautiful scenery around us or just simply at home.”
