Kia Ora,

My name is Moana.  I live with my husband, Boot (32-year) and our very friendly dog, Roady.  We have three grown up children who have all moved into their own spaces now, and six grandchildren who love to share their daily lives with us and are often visiting or staying over.

I had previously worked for Barnardos for approximately two years when our children were very young.  I had also been a Teacher Aide for Brockville school for about three years.  I love working with children and am very happy to find myself back with home-based care/education and particularly Wild Things.

I believe our home offers a warm, friendly, safe, stimulating and enjoyable indoor/outdoor environment for children.  With open and clear communication with parents, I know together we can create fun and dynamic educational learning experiences for your children, helping them to learn through play, and develop every area of their personal growth in preparation for school.

I love being creative with crafts, and love providing challenging and exciting resources for children to create, play and experiment with.  We would have many outings, some organized through Wild Things and some through our community – like the library, parks and beach.  We have a local park and a large field 3-minute walk from our home.

If you feel you would like to call in for a chat and a coffee, please feel free, the door is always open.
