Home Based Childcare


Home based education and care in Greerton, Tauranga by a fully qualified Early Childhood teacher.

I am a fully qualified and registered teacher with a Bachelor of Education (Teaching) in Early Childhood Education. I provide home-based care and education for up to four preschoolers in our family home.

We live in Greerton, 2 minutes walk from Greerton Village School and 10 minutes walk from Greenpark School.

Our home is child-friendly, smokefree, and fully fenced.  I take the children I teach to Mainly Music groups, playgroups, toddler time at the Library, and other excursions to extend the children’s current interests.

As well as my B.Ed (teaching) ECE I have an NZCS  in chemistry, a certificate in Te Ara Reo Māori from Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, and I am a COMPTIA A+ certified computer technician.  However I can’t imagine a more important job than being an early childhood teacher.  I have worked in many centres over the years and I have observed that some children do much better in smaller groups: Brain research technology has brought a flood of new information about early brain development, enabling neuroscientists to confirm what early childhood educators have known for aeons – that a person’s earliest years are utterly profound and life-forming
