Hello, I’m Olivia Hayward, having recently completed my Bachelor of Primary education qualification, I am excited to use my experience and skills to support our pre-schoolers transition to primary school. I have a passion for empowering our children practically, exploring their surroundings and taking this into our next learning steps. These next learning steps would incorporate ready for school activities, allowing our four year olds to experience many aspects of the learning they will engage at school through an informal means. Bloom is a wonderful environment to allow our children to grow as a whole-being, something of which I believe in greatly. I am thrilled to teach within a team that supports our children to learn through play, follow their creative path, be themselves, and foster resilience alongside empathy. Originally from Kaiaua (near Thames), I am loving life at Papamoa Beach with my own family of six. We are active in our school community and have many hobbies. You may find us at the beach, skate park, or running from one after-school activity to another. I feel honoured to be part of your child’s life journey, I look forward to getting to know all the children at Bloom while building relationship with them and their whanau.
