Pt Chevalier, Auckland
Gina has been a Home Based Educator since 2013 when her youngest child Hugo started school. She also has a daughter, Grace who is 2 years older. She qualified as a Montessori ECE teacher in London and continued teaching in Auckland when she moved to NZ in 2000.
Gina just loves having a small group of children in her care and she loves the freedom this allows for going out and exploring the beach , Coyle park and playground all within walking distance from her home.
The children have access to a well resourced designated playroom and their own sleep room and she also has a fully fenced back yard with lots of space to run around. She has a lovely border collie Roxy, who loves being around the children and believes her sole job is rounding them up.
ACTIVITIES THEY PROVIDE:
Gina’s playroom is full of resources: trains, cars, puzzles, painting/drawing, play dough and more. Music, singing and reading books is also part of the daily activities.
They also visit the local playgroup in Moa Rd (Tuesday/Wednesday) and Mt Albert playgroup at the YMCA on Thursday’s.
Gina believes that children learn best at an unhurried pace and she encourages independence by having toys at their level so they can access them themselves. She provides experiences and resources that extend and work with children’s interests.
Monday – Thursday 8.00am – 4.30pm
