Lynda Bicknell, Regional Manager
Kia Ora, My name is Lynda Bicknell. I am the Hawkes Bay Regional Manager for the Sprouts In-Home Childcare and have a Bachelor of Teaching and Learning (ECE).I also have a strong Playcentre background. My experience over the last 15 years has been in the Home Based sector of Early Childhood. I am passionate about home-based care as the benefits for children receiving and developing personal relationships with a primary Educator are really important. Working within Sprouts gives me the opportunities to connect with families, teach children and Educators as we build relationships that enrich children.

“We feel we have a true partnership with our educator in looking after and bringing up our son. She is very hands on, provides a varied and interesting programme and always has the interest of children at heart”
“I like the flexibility of the service. With lots of variety, playgroups, gym sessions, arts and crafts. My educator is able to pick up from Kindergarten,so my son has the best of both worlds”
“My educator’s daily programme of painting, play dough, story reading and socialising with other children in her care has been great for his self esteem”
