Kia ora, my name is Kirsty. I am a qualified Early Childhood Teacher. I have been working in Homebased care now for 7 years since completing my Diploma. I strongly believe in free-play and allowing children to be children, enabling them to develop their own unique personalities, strengths, independence and a sense of achievement. Along with provi8ding a safe, warm caring and respectful home away from home which is consistent yet flexible when need be.
Our home is located on Kakapo road just ten minutes from Te Anau. We have a large fully enclosed section where our children can play in the sandpit, run, bike, explore and experience being outdoors. We also have a large indoor playroom with many learning resources and comforts of home. The children have the opportunity to experience feeding the chickens and collecting the eggs, along with caring for and learning to respect our animals.
Throughout the week we attend Nature Kids, playgroup, Tumble Time, and local community events for pre-schoolers. We also enjoy spending time with the other children that attend Just Four Kids.
Kirsty has police clearance for her home, full drivers license and first aid. Her home meets or exceeds all health and safety criteria.
