Hi, my name is Toni and I have been an in-home educator for over 14 years, the last 9 years with Inspired Kindergartens in Tauranga.
I love children; I love their honesty, their energy, their curiosity. I originally trained to be an at home Educator so I could be available for my daughter (now 15 years old!). I have continued because I thoroughly enjoy spending time with little people.
I am an open, honest person myself who tries to balance a little bit of structure and a lot of fun and play into the children’s day. I find it very easy to bond and nurture children because I share the same values as their parents. First comes happiness and safety, then belonging and socialising, mixed in with a whole lot of learning and fun!
I live in Papamoa where we have a sunny, enclosed backyard with lots of outdoor play spaces and a sunny warm home that children feel comfortable to make their own.
I would love to meet you, show you what we offer and discuss what is important to you for your child/children’s care.
