Hi my name is Rebecca Thomson and I am the Head Teacher of the Graduation Kindergarten. I am married to Tony and we have two children Jonty and Mackenzie. I have a Diploma of Teaching (Early Childhood Education). I enjoy working with and alongside our tamariki and their whānau. Every day is rewarding as I love the natural curiosity, innocence and spontaneity of our children as they take on different developmental challenges. I believe that the learning environment is made up of strong foundations for our children. These foundations start from the relationships, respect that we as teachers have for our families and children. Relationships and respect is an important factor for our children, to feel safe and happy which encourages learning and curiosity.
Hi, I am Lindsey Harris. I live in Waipawa with my son Jack. I hold a Graduate Diploma in Early Childhood Education. Prior to retraining I worked as an Osteopath in Hastings and Waipukurau. I believe a child’s individuality, curiosity and creativity should be nurtured.
