Kia Ora! My name is Fairlee Rigby and I have been working here at Kent Terrace since February 2018. I achieved my Graduate Diploma of Teaching (Early Childhood) from Victoria University in 2017 and have recently graduated. Before my diploma I studied a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Psychology and minoring in Education, completing it in 2016 at Victoria University as well. I am from Hawkes Bay but moved down to Wellington to study and absolutely love living in this awesome city!

I am looking forward to learning and growing my teaching practice alongside the wonderful tamariki and other kaiako we have here at this centre. Teaching has always been an interest of mine and during my studies, I found a passion within early childhood. As a teacher, I strive to build strong and trusting relationships with each child and to recognise and encourage their unique abilities.

I am excited to be part of your children’s learning and development as we encourage and inspire the children to explore and share in positive learning experiences.
