Kia Ora, my name is Row
And I am thrilled to be joining the team here at Little Minds. I look forward to getting to know all of you as I settle in to this wonderful new environment.
I have four years experience in early childhood education, and completed my Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood Education) at the University of Waikato last year.
I put a lot of value on relationships with whaanau, tamariki and kaiako, and work hard to establish and maintain meaningful interactions.
I have a pedagogy of love, and strive to help tamariki feel that their centre can be their second home. I work to support children's interests, and love to provide experiences that provoke inquiry.
I have a passion for Te Reo Maori and am always trying to learn more of the language and kaupapa.
My partner and I live in Hamilton, with our two dogs and three cats, I am a kaitaki for animals and have rescued most of our pets. Outside of work, I enjoy walking our dogs, creating art and spending time with my family - I have a 5 month old niece who I love to spend time with! I can't wait to join the team, and continue my learning journey.
