Carla is our Office Administrator at Nurture@Home, more like office extraordinaire as she is amazing. Carla is a mum of three gorgeous children, (two boys (twins) and a girl). After many years working in the Kindergarten Association as an administrator, Carla saw the benefits for children of homebased education and care and is a strong believer in all that it offers!
Carla’s role entails anything to do with the database, attendance records and child enrollments. We are also blessed to have Carla using her creative flair to support our team!
Since completing my Diploma of Teaching I have worked in a variety of settings with tamariki (children) Childcare centres, Playcentre and Homebased care. I have enjoyed working in all of these settings but homebased care is a special passion for me. In homebased care children get to enjoy a social environment but still explore and interact with their world at an unhurried pace. To me this is what childhood is all about.
I am very lucky to have 3 gorgeous children and I have enjoyed every moment of their learning and growing in confidence and wish for every parent the same opportunities. The longer I work with children it consolidates for me the importance of the whole family and community being involved in each child’s learning. For a child to feel secure and happy their whanau needs to be involved in every step of their journey, helping them to belong, as part of the Nurture At Home Whanau (family).
