I'm an experienced and qualified early childhood educator, Nanny. Specialising in respectful Infant/toddler care and education, with Pikler/Gerber principles underpinning my practice. I believe in attachment theory/practice and adore a "Nurture in Nature" way of being with the infant/toddler or pre-schooler in my care. I bring an abundance of experience and creativity from a long-term career in early education and now embrace childcare in a home-based environment. Arohanui Andrea

Childcare Information

Summary of Experience

Many years working in a variety of centre-based earlychildhood care and education ranging from Kindergarten, daycare, Reggio, Montessori environments. I now value home-based care/education and it's extension into "Nurture in Nature" theory and practice. Learning from Nature is a life-long passion for myself and the tamariki in my care. My creative work with children emerges from Nature and Music. :)
