Gemma joined Home Grown Kids in August 2016.
She has been involved in Playcentre since her son was young (he is now at college). She completed the level 4 in the training and this ignitted her passion for children’s learning and development in the early years, which led her to completing a Degree in Teaching (Early Childhood Education) in 2016.
She loves knowing that she provides a safe and fun environment in her home which follows on from everyday life (housekeeping, preparing food or baking etc) that the children would participate in at their own homes with their parents and extended family.
ACTIVITIES THEY PROVIDE:
Gemma is passionate about working with young children and loves guiding and playing alongside children in her care, watching and teaching them to learn and develop new skills. She gets a great feeling of accomplishment when they master a new skill, speak words, take turns, help others etc.
Gemma believes that providing home based care is the right direction for a lot of children as opposed to being in a centre with strict rules and routines, home based care is so much more flexible and meets individual needs.
