I joined Home Grown Kids because my first child was with a Home Grown Kids Educator when I went back to work after my Maternity Leave and we had such a positive experience with the Educator and the Service. I chose the In-Home care environment because it offered my son a feeling of being ‘at home away from home’.
I come from a play-based philosophy with a ‘discovery’ approach to learning.I like the children to lead their play and wonderment. I can offer the children with multi-sensory equipment and a variety of opportunities and experiences.I use a ‘Growth Mindset’ model and place importance on developing oral language, communication, problem solving and fostering independence.
We are located a very short distance to Waikanae Kindergarten, Kapanui School and Waikanae
