My name is Laura. I have been working in the childcare sector for over 20 years. Firstly, acquiring my childcare certificate whilst working in a multilingual day-care centre in Sydney, Australia.
I decided after 2 years that day-care centres were not where my passion for childcare was and moved in Nannying. I looked after numerous families over the years and thoroughly enjoyed it and the close bonds I formed with the children and families.
One family were offered an opportunity to work in America and asked if I would join them to look after their twins and expectant new-born. I did one year in the States before returning to New Zealand to build a house and start my own family.
I have two daughters. They have been raised amongst my homebased childcare children and are very welcoming and nurturing. I started homebased when my eldest was 6 months old.
I hold a current level 5 childcare qualification, first aid certificate and full driver’s license.
I provide a safe, busy learning environment for children catering for their individual needs while working alongside parents’ aspirations.
I like to get out into the community regularly for different activities including music / craft, Storytime, library and whatever else is exciting. I provide children with a wide range of fun learning experiences away from the home setting.
