Kia ora, my name is Sophie from [email protected] I provide a loving home-based childcare service in the Victory area of Nelson City.
I believe that children should always have a hand in their own learning. Respectful, reciprocal relationships are a must. The teaching and learning needs to go both ways and by being calm and loving and meeting children where they are at, I can support children to reach their full potential.
I have worked in early childhood as a trained teacher since 2015 and prior to that as a nanny. I hold a degree in early childhood and have worked in services in both New Zealand and overseas during my travels. I live with my husband and enjoy playing music, reading and going hiking in nature.
Working overseas with different cultures has given me experience that I would otherwise not have been exposed to. I was a head teacher in Vietnam, studied at Reggio Emilia in Italy in 2019 where I was able to learn through one-on-one teaching with incredible teachers. I am a musician and love to teach through music.
I have a great outdoor space for messy play and love to expose children to nature play. I provide baking activities, lots of music & art for the children in my care, and like to attend activities in the local community.
