Kia ora, I’m Megan. I completed my Graduate Diploma of Early Childhood Education in 2017 after working in Advertising for 13 years. Along with this significant career change my family and I moved to Papamoa from Auckland in order to achieve my goal of becoming an Early Childhood teacher. I love working at Bloom in the under 1s room. Bloom provides the perfect environment to allow me to develop responsive and reciprocal relationships which is vital to understand our tamariki’s needs and interests. I believe in providing the best care possible which can be achieved by fostering curiosity and dispositions, actively listening, empowerment and play. I am passionate about developing competent, confident and active learners who can reach their potential and fulfil their dreams. My daughter, Ivy (3) comes to Bloom with me but when we are not here we love to hang out at the beach with my partner Andy and our two dogs as well as catching up with our friends or investigating all the sights and activities the beautiful Bay of Plenty has to offer.
