Amanda Russell – Visiting teacher

Growing SuperKids at Home                                                                                 

Kia ora, I am very excited to be part of the Just Four Kids team as a mentor and teacher. I grew a passion for homebased care and Education while I was working from home as a homebased educator when my own children were young.

I believe children learn best when they are nurtured by caring individuals in a small group setting, alongside play-based learning and nature rich environments.

I live in Lumsden with my partner Tama and my children. We enjoy a raft of outdoor activities and love to holiday in Riverton.

I have enjoyed working across a number of ECE roles including as a mentor for the Playcentres across the central Southland area, a community support co-ordinator for Plunket, as well as centre and homebased teaching roles.

I believe in parents as first teachers. The homebased care model supports this with close parent and educator partnership. I look forward to joining our educators and whanau in their homes and local communities.
