Hawkes Bay Napier  Sprouts Manager Lynda Bicknell

Napier & Hastings Co-ordinator

Kia Ora, My name is Lynda Bicknell. I am the Hawkes Bay Regional Manager for Sprouts In-Home Childcare and 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 opportunity to connect with families, teach children and Educators as we build relationships that enrich children.

At Sprouts In-Home Childcare we understand that each child is an individual and therefore has different needs and requirements.  We offer a unique system utilising our Educators individual strengths and abilities to ensure that they are compatible with your child.

For those who are interested in finding an Educator, you can contact our co-ordinators who will let you know what availabilities we have. The next step is arranging a visit and our co-ordinators can assist you in this process.  You are welcome to visit with a co-ordinator or alone.

When you have found an Educator we are able to provide assistance with settling your child into their new care environment.
