Meet Rikki-Lee

Meet Rikki-Lee, who is often the face and voice on the other end of the phone here at Montessori Kete.
Born in Taupō and hailing from one of our sub-tribes, Ngāti Ruingarangi, she naturally loves the outdoors, netball and is constantly engaging with her tamariki. Her baking skills certainly don’t go a miss either!
Rikki resides in Turangi with her partner Shaquille and their two beautiful babies, Halo (3yrs) and Kyzae (2yrs), who now feature throughout our website as we upload changes.
The Montessori concept and philosophy was first introduced when Halo attended a Montessori school 2 years ago while living in Hamilton.
Therefore, when this on-line store was purchased an opportunity presented itself to lead the Montessori Kete where she is currently upskilling to support this role.
Her commitment and enthusiasm to this mahi (work) is exceptional and of great value to us all.
