Hi my name is Dee and I started my childcare journey working in after school care and holiday programmes for children of different ages and children with special needs. I thoroughly enjoyed this but found my passion was with younger children so looked into homebased care which I have now been doing since July 2018. I have three daughters Shana born 2004, Souleen 2010 and Shiyah 2016. My brother Troy born 2005 also shares our home with us.
My home is set up with the children in mind so they can explore freely. I will offer your child a friendly, safe and welcoming home environment with a range of activities and experiences including manipulative play such as puzzles and blocks, arts and crafts, books and stories, physically active play and messy play. We also like to get out and about in the community where I attend a Kids at Home playgroup and gymnastics group, Tamariki days out, nature walks and local library and music groups. I also socialise with other Educators where the children get to make new connections and friendships.
I have a current first aid certificate and are currently studying towards my Early Childhood Level 4. I also attend workshops run by Kids at Home and outside agencies.
I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you and your child into our learning environment.
