Kia ora my name is Leeann and I have worked in home-based education for 10 years, I took a short break to complete my Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood Education) and I have returned to provide a private kindergarten style education in a home-based setting, where children’s interests, knowledge and skills are developed upon through play.
I pride myself on role modelling respectful interactions, nurturing a calm, and facilitating a caring environment.
I provide ample resources, activities and opportunities for learning in a holistic way. Music, crafts and messy play are my favourite teaching tools, and I love creating and making a mess with the kids.
I have a play-based transition to school programme for 3 and 4yr olds if you wish for your child to engage in it. This incorporates literacy and numeracy in real life play situations. I would love to hear from you if you feel your child would thrive in this home based setting.
