Hi, I’m Samara. I grew up in Christchurch and have recently moved to Papamoa where I am now living with my husband Samuel. I am loving life in the bay and in my free time you’d find me either soaking in the rays, dancing around the house, cooking up a storm or exploring new places. Prior to working in early childhood I taught dance to children, with ages ranging from three to twelve years of age. This is where I discovered my passion for working with young children. I love watching children learn and grow and I feel very privileged to play a part in each child's unique learning journey. I love creating spaces where children can explore their creativity whether it be art, movement or imaginative play. I feel excited and honoured to have the opportunity to work alongside all the wonderful teachers here at Bloom as the centre float!
