JADE HUNT - Centre Director


Jade was born in New Zealand and grew up in the suburbs of Laingholm where the west coast Beaches were a second home. 

“As a young child I always had a dream to work with children, I initially started out in Nursing but soon realised my passion was in Early Childhood. I started in Early Childhood in 2011 where my passion for education grew more every day. I furthered my studies in a Postgraduate in Educational Leadership and Management in 2016 where I wanted to make a difference in leadership roles. I joined the New Shoots family in April 2018 where I was a teacher at the Hobsonville centre with my two young children, during this time I was able to further my knowledge of New Shoots values and philosophy and how that makes me the leader I am today, I have come to New Shoots Whenuapai as Centre Director where I am really enjoying this new role. I love all that New Shoots has to offer and I am looking forward to my future here, growing and learning alongside our New Shoots whānau.”
