Lynette Hita - Teacher


An avid adventurer who likes to explore what nature has to offer in her spare time, Lynette is enjoying her first experience of early childhood teaching at Sunnynook.

“I completed a Level Six Certificate in Early Childhood Teaching in 2017 and immediately started at New Shoots. I’m continuing study for a third year to complete the Bachelor of Early Childhood Education to become a qualified teacher.

I feel that the most important aspect of guiding children through their learning journey is growing warm, respectful relationships with each child and their family members. That way they feel empowered to reach their full potential as they advance through life.”

Lynette grew up in the Marlborough region. Her whānau is descendant from Ngati Whatua iwi in Northland and she is glad to get back to her roots and learn more about her history.
