Hi I’m Maggie
I’m a proud mum and a passionate early childhood educator/teacher with over 33 years experience working with young children. I live in the sunny Mt Maunganui (Omanu), and welcome you to pop in. My home provides a warm, fun place for children to explore new learning.
I am a qualified teacher with full teacher’s registration and a current first aid certificate. Over my career I have built up a wide platform of experience; working with babies and 2 - 4 years, as a nanny, a preschool teacher, a reliever teacher, and now an early childhood educator. Working with children is what I do. Warm and nurturing in my approach, I’ve found the best learning occurs when children are engaged in play – so discovering their particular interests is key!
My property is full-fenced and has an outdoor shade sail for those amazing sunny days. They’ll enjoy our outdoor play areas, swings and slide set and sand pit set in a tropical garden. Indoors there’s dedicated learning areas and play and sleep rooms.
In Omanu, we’re close to the beach, lovely parks, Baywave pools and other great places for field trips and adventures! I have a seven-seater vehicle and hold a full driver’s license.
There’s plenty of adventures to be had and furry friends to be made. We have one puppy, two friendly cats, tropical fish and our own chickens – ready for an egg hunt?
Come for a cuppa! I’d love to meet you and your child.
