Tina and Kath
We are the lucky owners of Footprints, here in Waihi. We purchased the centre from Phil and Pauline Davison in late 2019, and began a fabulous journey with the existing staff. Tina, a qualified Early Childhood Teacher, spent the last ten years working in childcare in Nelson, while Kathryn is a Qualified Primary School Teacher, from Rotorua.
We both truely enjoy working with children watching their growth as they learn about the world around them. From this relationship with the child, we become a part of something bigger, part of each family, and the community around us. Hence we have come to purchase a childcare centre together as sisters, turning our small family into a larger one.
As a team we value the individual child, their needs, and interests. Our desire is for children to come away from Footprints with a strong sense of self worth, good self-esteem, confidence in their individuality, and the ability to be independent in their day to day activities. This will put them in the best position to be ready to start school. We have excellent support in the kind and caring staff at the centre - You can read more about them below.
We look forward to meeting new families and inviting them to join our community here at Footprints.
