Co-Owner and Programme Coordinator

I am passionate about and love sharing the benefits of at home care with others. As a working mum of three busy children (College age), an Early Childhood Teacher for the past 20+++ years, and being in the Home Based childcare sector locally in Nelson since 2009 I absolutely love what I do!  I love to be able to support other parents in their journey through parenting & meeting their childcare needs, as well as supporting the Educators in the wonderful, and important work they are doing in their homes! Community is important to me and creating connections within the community is the basis of all that we offer.

I can’t wait to meet you soon!

Co-Owner and Programme Coordinator

When I think of young children my vision is to enrich and empower the lives of tamariki (children), whānau (families) and educators and I am passionate about celebrating our unique bicultural heritage,  encouraging children’s engagement in the wonderful natural environments that we have in the Nelson/Tasman region.   I have been working in Early Childhood Education since 2008 and as a mum myself I have had the joy and pleasure in watching my two children grow into confident and happy young people, and I know that they have had the experiences that I value and find incredibly important. I have treasured the journey with them and I look forward to many, many more years ahead.

Office Administrator 'Extraordinaire'

Hi there, I’m Carla and I am the Office Aministrator here at Nurture@Home.  I’m a mum of three gorgeous children, (two boys and a girl). After many years working in the Kindergarten Association as an administrator, I saw the benefits for children of at home care and am a believer in all that it offers!

My role here is anything to do with the database, paperwork, enrolments and website. I love using my creative flair to support the team when little gifts are needed for expos etc.  I  look forward to chatting soon!

Community Leader

I am passionate about the benefits of home based care as I feel it offers a more personalised service where educators are able to have a one on one relationship with the children.  I have experience working as a home based educator for a number of years and have completed the National Certificate in Early Childhood Education & Care.  I am excited to be working as the Community Leader within the Nurture@Home team, supporting families, educators and the community to provide the best start for children.
