Barb Geddes - Centre Director


Barbara has been working in early childhood education since 2005. She joined the New Shoots team in Sunnynook as the Centre Director in 2016.

“I’m very passionate about creating an environment that promotes a home away from home for children and their families. A beautifully aesthetic environment is important for children’s learning – they are competent and capable learners of their own journey.

I believe that respectful, reciprocal relationships between the centre and whānau promotes positive learning outcomes for children.”

Barbara has a diploma of teaching and learning in ECE and a Bachelor of Teaching in ECE.
