Ranui Heights, Porirua, Wellington
Hi, my name is Ria! I am a married mother of three grown up children and seven grandchildren; four boys and three girls. I have lived in Ranui Heights for the past 11 years.
I am a Home-based Educator and have worked in a number of childcare centres for the past 13 years in New Zealand. I am originally from South Africa where I ran my own centre for five and half years before we made the move to New Zealand.
I have enjoyed my time in a centre based environment but I am driven to provide more for parents and children. My passion is the reason I choose to look after children as a profession, and I know that I can make a difference in your child's life.
I do regular activities with the children in my home such as painting, playdough, reading, crafts and singing. I often take the children out to our local park in Linden, which is a beautiful outing we always enjoy. Within my home I will always offer a stable and fun environment with lots of one-on-one attention. The children and I also attend playgrounds and community events.
I have a full New Zealand drivers licence and my days of work are flexible.
