Lynette has been teaching in the ECE sector for 29 years. From an early age, as a  little girl reading to her teddy bears, she knew she wanted to be a teacher. She received her diploma of teaching through Te Tari Puna Ora O Aotearoa: The New Zealand Childcare Association.

“I believe that establishing positive, reciprocal relationships with children and their families, celebrating their individualism, and really listening to them are the integral building blocks to supporting children's learning and development.

Outside of my working hours I like to read, cook, do crafts, go for walks on the beach, scour markets for hidden treasures, and go on road trips. I look forward to working alongside your children supporting their interests, learning and development in partnership with you. Arohanui.”
