Kia ora, my name is Edwina and I have been a teacher at Olive Shoots since 2004. I have a Diploma in Early Childhood Education. I am passionate about encouraging tamariki to develop socially, emotionally physically and  intellectually. My aim is for parents and whanau to feel welcomed and supported and for their children to have opportunities and experiences to shine and excel. I am South African and married with 2 adult children. I speak Afrikaans and my hobbies are cooking , spending time in the outdoors and being with my family.
