About Toni

Hello, my name is Toni and I am a mother of twin boys born in 2005. I have happily been providing Home-Based care since 2010 and feel extremely lucky to be in a job that I enjoy. I get to play, have cuddles and am surrounded by smiles and laughter every day.

I try my best to make my home a safe and secure space for our little ones, somewhere they can feel comfortable to be themselves shine their brightest.

I believe children learn and grow through their closest relationships and so I work to create strong and supportive bonds with both children and their families.

I also believe children learn at their very best while enjoying themselves in play.
"Play is often talked about as if it were relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood" - Fred Rodgers

What Our Whānau Say

My boys go to in home care with Toni at Ruahine Home-Based, and it’s the best decision I have ever made! I have such a great relationship with Toni. It’s flexible for the work I do and she is great at communicating with me about how they are progressing with their learning. She goes above and beyond for the needs of my children and is so amazing with them. The one-on-one bond they have is something I never thought would be possible within a childcare service.
