[ Educator for: Brightwater ]

Kia ora, my name is Corene and I provide a loving homebased childcare service in the lovely community of Brightwater.  

I believe every child is a very precious individual and that the child’s quality learning is to grow healthy in mind, body and spirit, being confident and secure in their sense of belonging. I believe that each child is a valued participator in society and my homebased education programme will enable them to grow their early years steps of learning and curiosity with enjoyment and confidence. I have extensive experience working with young children and offer a safe, warm and comfortable home for your child.

We have a huge vegetable garden, 6 fruit trees and concrete paths for those bikes and scooters!  A tree hut, swing and a lovely flat grass area to grow the children’s motor skill abilities and outdoor games with parks and walkways close by too.  The weekly Nurture@Home activities of playgroups, gym and NatureEXPLORERS are also a big part of our social learning programme. These activities are enthusiastically offered throughout the week, incorporating music, dance, nature play, messy play, creativity with arts and crafts, motor-skill activities, baking, carpentry, story-time, family play and recognition of alphabet, numbers, colour and shapes.  We also have chickens who are called Buttercup and Henny Penny. I look forward to meeting you.

Below are some quotes from references of people I have worked with in the past . . . 

    • “Warm, loving, caring, kind and patient nature.  Amazing, with such a bubbly personality.” 
    • “She has a calm disposition, which relates very well to young babies, and a vibrant personality which the older children enjoy.” 
    • Corene’s interactions with the children are gentle and sincere, and it did not take long for genuine relationships to be formed.” 
    • “She has demonstrated great skills working with the children, extending their language by using open ended questions and encouraged children to problem solve.  I would not hesitate to recommend Corene for any position working alongside children.
