Kia ora, my name is Hayley from Nurture@Home, quality education and home childcare. I provide a loving home-based childcare service in Stoke. I would love to have the honour of working with you and your beautiful children, supporting them as they grow and begin to explore and discover the world around them!
I believe that for children to feel a sense of security and belonging they must feel listened to, be understood and to be communicated within a way that they understand. It is important they are valued for their efforts and their contributions and loved and treasured just for being themselves. I love the curiosity and enthusiasm of young children and their fascination with anything unknown.
To grow and to learn children need an environment that provides them with the opportunity to develop skills that enable them to participate effectively in their environment. They need time, resources and experiences that enable them to develop an understanding of the world around them. They need to be able to learn through open-ended creative play, exploration and discovery and through communication and interaction with others.
I am willing to further my knowledge in any way if it means I can better meet the needs of your child, as I understand how precious your child is to you!
I have a Degree in Nursing, a Diploma of Teaching, the Level 3 Certificate in ECE, a Certificate in Māori Tikanga and am a mother to four fantastic children.
I lived in Bolivia, South America for nine years where I worked in an orphanage kindergarten, and we speak Spanish and English at home. Since returning to New Zealand I have participated in Playcentre, worked as a teacher at Nelson Montessori and now love working as an early childhood Educator from my own home. I endeavour to continuously improve my knowledge about children’s education, development and psychology so that I can support children in their learning.
We live in a house full of exciting toys with a garden full of flowers and vegetables. We have a swing set, a hammock, a playhouse, and live right next door to a reserve full of fruit trees. We love art activities, exploring science concepts & experiments, listening to music (and making our own), doing puzzles, baking, growing things in the garden and discovering creepy crawlies, visiting the beach, the bush, and the park and Natureland. We love to visit the library, have fun with math concepts, enjoy building and digging, and playing ball. We love water play including watering the garden, bathing dolls, washing cars and mixing coloured water. We do lots of creative imaginary play.
Come and join us, we look forward to meeting you!
