About Glenda

My philosophy is to provide children with the relaxed, calm and loving environment they need to explore and learn, while I observe and extend their experiences.

I come from a farming background where my children were brought up on the farm too.  I was able to be at home with them until they started school which I loved.

I spent 12 years working for the Australian Scholarship Group, enrolling children for tertiary scholarships.  I have also worked voluntarily for Parentline Manawatu for the past 11 years.  Have over 5 years’ experience caring for children for another home based organisation.

My interests and hobbies circle around my family and friends.  I love to cook so enjoy doing this for them too, and am very interested in natural health.

A unique service

The atmosphere I provide is calm and loving and I want my kids to feel they truly belong here.  We live on a lifestyle block so we have plenty of space around us.  I also choose children very carefully who I think will fit into and get along with the personalities of the children I already have.


Spaces available - Monday to Friday from 8.15am to 5.15pm
