Hollie

Hello, I'm the supervisor at Hui- Kindergarten programme for AAK and I am responsible for the overall programme provided for the children. I have a Bachelor of Teaching Early Childhood and hold full teacher registration.

I am married with 3 children and am learning about balancing parenting with the challenges of being a working Mum. My interests include cross-stitching, cycling and home renovations.

Small children are so full of enthusiasm and curiosity. As adults we need to be available to capitalise on opportunities to extend the child's knowledge as curiosity and interests arise.

I Help out in the office with administration tasks when the manager is away which extends my knowledge in the paperwork side of an early childhood centre.
