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 and travelling which is a big part of my life.
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.
