My name is Laura. I am Chinese. I normally practice bilingual with my children (Chinese and English). I graduated from Waikato University with a postgraduate degree in early childhood education.
I have been working in early childhood education for more than 10 years now. I started as a kindergarten teacher. However my philosophy is attachment theory, so it requires me to have a much closer relationship with my children than I can do in kindergartens, so I switch to a home base. I believe small ratios mean better attention and support. I want to build a trust circle to provide children a safe environment to encourage them to explore and learn. I think exploring and learning are very important for our young minds. I also practice social participation Learning, Which means I will provide lots of different social activities in a regular routine for my children, for example, music class, gym, play center, bus trip. Therefore children can experience different learning and social environments in order to improve their social competencies.
My daughter is 5 years old, and my husband has worked for the government for the last 8 years. We have been married for 15 years. We both love children so much and believe in the great potential for every child.
I hope I can support your children to a bright future.
