Kia Ora Whaanau my name is Lynley

And I am a Qualified and fully registered ECE Teacher and the Head Teacher in the fern room.

I was born in Papakura, South Auckland but I moved to Cambridge with my Mum and siblings at the age of 5.

I have a beautiful daughter Jemma who attends the local high school, she is the joy and love of my life.

I have a wonderful partner Matt and we are the best of friends. We live in Te Awamutu with our doggo Stuart and our tonkinese cat William, they are very spoilt.

We love taking Stuey to the lake and beach and enjoy these moments as a family.

Professionally I have been an early childhood Teacher for 12 years now, it is a career I fell into, but not suprising as I come from a family of teachers. I am passionate about teachign and I love creating inviting spaces that create a sense of wonder for your children. Thank you for entrusting me to care for your tamariki.
