“Partnerships are at the centre of what grows language-rich environments for tamariki. It’s a privilege to walk alongside whānau, kaiako, and practitioners as they lead the movement in our communities.”
Cintia has a background in early childhood education and social sciences. She initially joined the Talking Matters team as a champion while working as a kaiako/ coach in ECE. Her experiences of migrating from Argentina and her passion for the role of language and culture in development guide her work as an activator. She is based in the Pāpāmoa – Bay of Plenty area where she works in partnership with community, whānau and kaiako to enhance language environments for tamariki.
