Kia Ora, I’m Philippa from Nurture@Home, where I offer quality education and home-based childcare. I am a Mum to three lovely children, and we are conveniently based in Stoke.
I am passionate about providing quality care for children in a safe, warm, trusting and secure home environment. I love all things crafty and enjoy providing children with the opportunity to develop, learn and be creative through open-ended play.
I believe in providing a rich and meaningful learning environment that empowers children to initiate their own learning. In doing so, children experience the autonomy to move freely at their own pace and fulfil their own natural urges to explore the world around them. The expansive outdoor environment reflects this; children explore endless learning moments amongst the growing fruit trees and vegetables. The spacious grass area ensures activities are set-up and provided for with purpose and meaning based upon each child’s emerging interests. The trampoline, basket of balls, and ride-on equipment provides boundless enjoyment while supporting children’s developing gross motor skills.
My approach towards teaching and learning is founded upon relationship-based care. I acknowledge relationships are at the heart of learning. I ensure to create familiar, consistent rituals and care moments that are predictable for each child. I celebrate who they are as an individual by embracing their authenticity and personal attributes.
I have completed two years of study towards a Bachelor of Teaching & Learning (Early Childhood) and have previous experience working in various childcare centres around Nelson/Richmond.
With my knowledge, childcare experience and that of being a Mum, I value how precious each child’s learning journey is. I am an open-communicator, trustworthy and approachable. I will ensure to support your aspirations and values for your child. I am committed to guiding your child in becoming a confident and competent learner in all areas of their wellbeing.
I am available Mon-Fri but can also be flexible to suit your childcare needs. I look forward to hearing from you.
