Sam has just joined Dunsandel childcare and preschool at the end of November 2018. In 2015, Sam began her journey in studying a Bachelor of teaching and learning at New Zealand Tertiary College after a year she decided to finish off her Bachelors  at the University of Canterbury. Sam has just recently moved back to Southbridge where she was brought up. Sam lives with her partner, in their weekends they both enjoy Jet boating in the warm weather, renovating the house and spending time with friends and family. Sam believes in having ongoing relationships and communication with all tamariki, Whãnau, kaiako and community. This allows her to design planning around ongoing interests at home and centre. Sam has a caring, loving and passionate nature and is excited to be offered this exciting new journey in her life.
