Amy Thynne

Fully Qualified and Registered Coordinator

Kia Ora, my name is Amy and I am a fully Qualified (with a Bachelor of Education ECE) and Registered Early Childhood Teacher. I live on the glorious Hibiscus Coast with my family and am a mum to two awesome teenage boys.

I have been in the childcare industry in a variety of different facets for about 20 years now and I love being a part of children’s early years care and education. I am very passionate about ensuring children get the very best care in the very best environment in their early years for their own individual needs and ensuring they have all the available opportunities to grow to their full potential. I love working with and supporting our Educators, children and their families to create the most memorable and fabulous time in their early years.
