Project 2017-01-27 17:46:01 +1300
Kids are our future and for many of them a good start is not a part of it. I want to start a home based care business from my home where I can look after preschoolers . I have a passion for supporting, caring and teaching preschoolers and take great delght in seeming them develop, mature and gain confidence in themselves. When they are happy and secure they can do anything. With many years of experience as a nanny, foster parent, early childhood teacher,primary teacher, Children's Pastor, Sunday School Teacher, Step Mum and a dedicated Aunty I have many plans and ideas that I want to implement. I have a Graduate Diploma in ECE Teaching and a Diploma in Child Protection, so i am well equipped to provide children with stablity and security.
I have been accepted by Nurtured at Home, a wonderful Agency with good ERO reports. They will give me educational opportunities for the children, check up on a regular basis to see how they are doing and provide outings for the children where we can meet up with other kids. I have the support of my wonderful husband who also enjoys spending time and mentoring young children. Kids love him and he has been a father figure to boys without a father.
I have got a house now that is suitably fenced, warm and safe. But I need more toys, especially a sandpit, swing set, climbing frame, playhouse, water and sandplay equipment for outside (and a gardening shed to store it in), music instruments, play kitchen for family play, accessories for dolls such as a bassinet, highchair and pram. there are other bits and pieces to. I would also like a blackboard or white board for teaching times and parent notices.

The People Behind Kids having fun while learning
I am happily married to Geoff and we have a son who lives In Masterton. I enjoy scrapbooking, crafts, working on my computer, going for walks and swimming at the beach. My husband and I enjoy camping and camp every year with a group of friends and their kids from Tauranga. We are both enjoy our local church where Geoff is involved with the pre-youth group kids.
I have always been passionate about kids, I've been involved with kids of all ages over many years. I am qalified in both Early Childhood and Primary Teacher and I am Government registered. I have a special interest in children from dysfunctional homes, which is why I completed a Diploma in Child Protection Services (neglect and abuse).
We fostered for 3 years and the above training really helped me understand why the children reacted the way that they did, we enjoyed opening our home to needy children and giving them the security and love that they desperately needed.
The chldren thrived under our care and left different kids. It was hard saying good-bye but we knew that we played an important part in their lives.
With over 35 years of experience working with children of varying ages and cultures and in many different situations, I know I have the experience to provide a wonderful time for these children, so the parents can go to work safe in the knowledge that their children are secure and happy.
