Meet our Staff

Kindergarten Teacher - Kristy Gear

I wish to extend a warm welcome to you and your child to FDC Footprints Kindergarten. Your child’s experiences in their early years form a strong foundation for later life and I would feel very privileged to be part of this important stage of their childhood. It’s my personal aim and commitment to provide a nurturing environment where your child feels welcome, safe and supported.  Furthermore, I hope to celebrate their own unique personality and develop worthwhile and meaningful experiences that encourage them to reach their greatest potential. I would look forward to getting to know your child and working in partnership with you; your child’s first and most important teacher!
