Kia Ora, my name is Emma Sands and I am the Head Teacher in the Koru room

I moved to Te Awamutu 13 years ago with my now Husband, Scott. We have 3 children aged 7yrs, 4yrs and 2yrs.

I completed my Bachelor of Teaching Early Childhood in 2014 and with over 10 years working in Early Childhood Education. I am forever learning and being inspired by children’s learning and development and the differing theories that are out there to support them.  My passion is working with babies, infants and toddlers and I am excited to be working in the Koru room.
