Nicki holds her New Zealand National Nanny Certificate and has over 20 years experience caring for children. Nicki has been working as an Educator for Home Grown Kids since 2017 and really understands the importance of caring for children in a home environment.
Nicki provides a warm and safe home with a large secure outdoor area. There are plenty of opportunities for the children to grow fruit and vegetables in the raised garden beds at the front of the property while the back of the property is large and children are encouraged to explore and make their own play choices. The forest is nearby too and the children enjoy regular forest expeditions.
ACTIVITIES THEY PROVIDE:
Nicki provides a wide variety of toys and resources that supports the children’s learning and interests. Regular walks and bike rides around the local community ensure the children are familiar with the wider world.
Numeracy and literacy are incorporated into the daily programme through games, songs, finger plays and books.
Nicki is passionate about outdoor play for small children and understands that outdoor play supports a child’s well-being, learning and development. She believes wet weather also provides opportunities for children to wrap up warm, go puddle jumping, float leaves, wonder why and just have FUN!
