Kia ora, hello my name is Nikki and I have recently joined the Olive Shoots team (Feb 2024).  I have 2 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I continue to support 4 boys who I have fostered over the past 13 years. I have worked with and learned from children for over 30 years. I believe every child is a gift from God, I feel blessed to be part of supporting them as they learn and grow. I love bringing art and science into the Starfish room and am always inspired by children's creativity, their wonderful ideas and their eagerness to learn through their play.
