Hi, I am Rachel and I have been involved in Homebased Education and Care for over 21 years, prior to that I was also involved in Nannying for one year.
I have been married for over twenty years to my wonderful husband, we have two grown daughters. I have lived in Hamilton my whole life and value being a part of an active community who value and support the health and well-being of children. I make the most of local parks and events within my Home-based Programme, attending community groups such as Mainly Music, Kids At Home playgroup, Chipmunks and Kids At Home termly events. These groups support children’s development and learning, all while having fun in a social environment.
I have completed university papers in early childhood and human development and have a great understanding of how children learn and grow. I am warm, caring and responsive to the wants and needs of each child, as well as responsive to your needs as parents and your aspirations for your tamariki. This is reflected in my strong, lifelong relationships with families and through regular learning stories which I write using StoryPark.
My home in Flagstaff is warm, inviting and there is lots of space for children to explore and engage in play, I look forward to meeting you soon!
