In 2012, Kristen dedicated her life to co-creating what has now become the award-winning Pachamama. Her passion for the great outdoors, appreciation of other cultures, and understanding of the richness created through diversity have contributed to a new paradigm of early education and childcare in Australia.
Kristen understands how to transform a service that few children want to attend into a centre of excellence that few children want to leave She and her highly qualified and experienced Management Team have made Pachamama a home-away-from-home stepped in nature, creativity and diversity. In six short years, Pachamama has grown from around 20 children attending per day into 200 children attending per day. The Pachamama family includes around 50 employees and 700 active children from 325 families.
We are keen to help other Educators improve their practice by sharing what we have done and the philosophy behind our thinking and reasoning. With 150,000 international social media followers interested in Pachamama, Kristen has committed to writing this Pachamamaity blog to address topics and queries asked of us everyday.
Pachamamaity will focus on the building blocks that make Pachamama what it is with a hope it will inspire readers towards improvement; not to simply replicate, but to uniquely create according to their own passion, setting and community.
