Hi, my name is Sam and I am a home-based Educator with over 20 years experience. Located in peaceful Papamoa, my home is a safe and loving environment with a large fenced backyard suitable for all types of activities. 

I chose this job because I have a genuine love for children and being able to help them reach their full potential. I understand that it can take a lot of time and effort to find the perfect match to care for your child. 

In my care your child will participate in community activities such as excursions to the local park, playgroups, Kids at Home events and tumble time. At home we reguarly play with arts and crafts, sing and dance and learn new rhymes! Show and tell, outdoor play and dress ups are also popular choices and of course birthday celebrations! 

If you are looking for home-based care in the Papamoa area, I would love to hear from you!

Sam's Philosophy

As a “Kids At Home” Educator, my goal is to provide quality education that will have a significant and lasting impact of children’s kotahitanga (holistic) development.  My aim is that when children leave, they will be competent and resilient learners, secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society; and have a love of learning that will continue throughout their lives.

I strive to provide a warm and welcoming place, where children and whanau feel they belong.  Where the diverse backgrounds, values, traditions and capabilities of those within our learning community are embraced, celebrated and reflected in my unique learning environment. To connect with whanau maintaining an open communication link between myself and parents.

Engaging children through play, making every moment a learning one.  Every child will have the opportunity to experience a rich environment that encompasses tactile experiences, literacy and numeracy skills, outdoor play, sand/water/carpentry, block building, family play, puzzles, art and much more.
