[ Educator for: Atawhai ]

Hi, my name is Rebekka and I provide a nurturing home environment that inspires curiosity and creative play.  I speak English and German and I believe that lots of love, respect, communication, and positive role modelling are essential to help our children to grow into confident, resilient and brave lifelong learners.

I live in Atawhai and our little family includes my husband Rob (who is a kiwi) and our precious son Rouven.  We also have our “old fella” cat friend, Tom Tom.

One of my strong points is language and communication.  I am from Germany so families who are interested in offering their child a bilingual care environment are well accommodated in my home.  By using my foundation in Occupational Therapy I like to encourage creative, art and crafty play to inspire the “inner artist”.  I also provide natural, open-ended, interesting resources that encourage children’s imagination.

Along with my fantastic home environment we also make the most of outings in our community including Nurture@Home Playgroups, music, nature play and library visits.

In my spare time I am a keen op-shopper and enjoy spending time with my family, visiting markets, playgrounds, beaches and gardening.
