Kristy Rush - Teacher


Kristy has known since school that her career would be in the education and care of young children. She earned her Bachelor of Teaching in Early Childhood Education at NZTC 12 years ago and has enjoyed working in centres throughout the Bay of Plenty and in Perth, Australia.

“It’s so important to build trusting, meaningful, reciprocal relationships with children and their whānau to ensure the best outcome is achieved for the children in our care. I’ve been a part of the New Shoots Sandhurst team since August 2016 and I love working with children aged 1-2 years in the Paua room.”

Kristy enjoys spending time with her husband and family, going to the beach and catching up with friends.
