Emma has been a teacher, leader and manager for a wide variety of early childhood centres, as well as a tutor for training early childhood teachers. Emma has taught in new entrant and year one/two classrooms so knows firsthand what is required and the importance of a robust transition to school programme. Using her theoretical and practical knowledge about transition to school she led a forum for early childhood and primary school teachers to bridge the gap between the early years and school. Emma has implemented play-based learning programmes in centres and her greatest passion in education is the Reggio Emilia project approach.
Emma has extensive experience working with young children sharing her wealth of knowledge and practical skills to support teachers, managers and owners of early learning services. She can help you to develop and grow your teachers and childcare to meet the needs of our youngest tamariki and their whanau.
Emma provides expert support and development for professionals from setting up new centres, growing existing centres, guiding staff through ERO visits, to HR and marketing and coaching teachers and managers to ensure quality care and education.
