Our People

Kim Carnie, Centre Manager - Maternity Leave

Hi, my name is Kim and I am very excited to be joining the whānau here at Lollipops Rolleston. I have recently moved to Burnham with my partner, our children and our ensemble of pets including ponies, dogs and a goat.

During my eight years’ experience in early childhood education I have seen my passion for children’s development and learning grow to extraordinary heights and over the last five years I have been involved in various leadership roles. I have tutored teenagers about early childhood as part of a youth guarantee programme for the Salvation Army, and more recently was Assistant Manager at Active Explorers Rolleston.

I qualified with my teaching degree in 2014 however I am still studying and aim to finish my Masters in Early Childhood Education very shortly.
