Kia ora, my name is Leanne Wiltshier. I have been involved in early education for 27 years. I hold a Diploma of Teaching ECE and recently graduated with a Post Graduate in Leadership (ECE). I am married to Kevin and have four adult children and two Grandchildren.
I started my early childhood career attending Playcentre with my children and moved into teaching in all-day centres when they went to school.
I believe in mixed age settings, children leading their own learning, having a rich learning environment so children can follow their new interests as well as discover new ways of knowing, being and doing.
I am inspired by current theory and practices, and believe that teaching is about learning with and alongside of our children.
I am excited and looking forward to joining the team at Central Kids Dinsdale Early Learning Centre.
