First Aid Certificate

Kia ora, my name is Kathryn Wick and I am the Head Teacher of the Mighty Monkeys classroom. I am married to Wayne and we have 3 adult sons and 2 grandsons. We moved to Marton in 2011 and love the lifestyle that a small rural town offers.

My interest in early childhood education started when our boys attend Playcentre. I then moved to the wider early childhood sector and completed my Diploma in Early Childhood and then in 2013 further studied to gain a Bachelor of Teaching ECE.

I believe that building strong relationships with children, families and whānau is important so that I can empower young children’s learning, through a positive social cultural perspective in a learning environment where young children can interact with people, places and things, enabling them to build on their strengths, interests and dispositions. My other interests include spending special times with family and friends, gardening, watching rugby, baking, cooking and hand crafts.
