My name is Loretta Merriman, I live with my partner Mike and our two children in Whakatāne. I have three children, Reon-Jay 21, Michael 9 and Jacinta 6.
Michael attended Central Kids Strathmore for two years before we moved to Wairoa, Michael and Jacinta now attend Allandale School.
I grew up in Murupara and then moved to Ōpōtiki when I was 8 years old. I have 9 siblings in my family, three brothers and six sisters. I am also a twin, my sisters name is Heather and she is the oldest out of us two. I am very passionate about music and I could dance all day to music.
I enjoy going to the beach, collecting shells and all sorts on the beach and also going for walks. I love to do arts and crafts and you will probably find me there most times you come into kindergarten.
I am going to enjoy working here at Central Kids Strathmore and hope to get to know all of you.
