Catherine McCaul, B. Ed

Centre Manager

Kia Ora!  My name is Catherine McCaul and I have lived in Upper Hutt for over 30 years.


I completed my Bachelor of Teaching in 2013 with Te Rito Maioha and have enjoyed working with children and their families since 2009.


In my spare time I enjoy gardening, taking my dog for walks and spending time with my two daughters Cassie and Jordan.


I look forward to meeting and working with you to develop your child's love for learning at Kidlywinks Childcare.

My name is Kathleen/Kat, I live with my partner Russ and our six children in Stokes Valley. I love having a big family but strongly dislike the never ending washing pile that comes with it. 

I love reading and spending quality time with my kids.  I enjoy spending my days off catching up with family and friends and going out for coffee.
