Hi, I am Maureen. I am married with two boys, age 11 and 12 years old, who have been brought up in the West Harbour area.
We have a fully fenced section and child-friendly home. All excursions are within walking distance which is the best time to learn about our environment and to find our treasures!
I have worked at the local school, kindergarten and Holiday Afterschool Programme in Port Chalmers. I am also a fully qualified swimming instructor for our local swim school for ages 10 years down to babies.
I love teaching and learning from children. I like them to feel relaxed, confident and happy in my care. I enjoy teaching children of all different abilities. Each child is unique and they learn at different levels.
We spend a lot of time outdoors, it gives children the experience to learn what’s outside their own door to play with. I like the children to learn, play and be creative through art and building things. Getting messy is all part of being a child.
