Hopes Tapestry: weaving stories of transformation through challenging times

Kelly brings over 20 years of early education experience gained in New Zealand and Australia. She specialises in walking alongside educators, teachers and organisations as a pedagogical companion, strengthening the systems and approaches they adopt to deliver genuine and authentic educational programs for children. Kelly loves facilitating conversations that invite teams to unpack the ‘whys’ behind their practice, fostering a strong sense of purpose, knowledge and joy. She believes in making meaningful connections between practice and theory over time and through slow pedagogy. Kelly's expertise has made her a sought-after speaker and professional development provider known for simplifying complexities and inspiring pedagogical courage. Widely respected for her dedication to children's and educators' rights, her creativity and commitment drive transformative change across the education and care sector.  Kelly has published several resources and books contributing to conversations related to mental health and documentation and, more recently, co-founded The Creative Collection, a new resource inviting early childhood teams to reimagine the arts in teaching and learning.


When Kelly is not knee-deep in empowering organisations ‘to think and learn,’ you will find her running, planning her next holiday, and spending time with her son Caleb.
