Jane Forrest

Hi, I’m Jane, I am originally from the United Kingdom where I started my career in childcare. I have lived in New Zealand for the last 20 years where I have continued my passion for children’s education by completing my Diploma of Teaching in Early Childhood Education.
I believe that children learn through their experiences, I value and believe in the Reggio Emilia Approach to teaching and also the nurturing role of Emmi Pikler.
I really enjoy my role at Lincoln Village Preschool and Nursery, I enjoy the relationships that I have with the children and their families that attend our centre. We also have such a great team of Early Childhood Teachers and Teacher aids, which are passionate about quality education and experiences for the children.
