I am new to early childhood and have been working with both the under and over 2's, I am really enjoying this new experience and am so lucky to be able to play a part in the children's learning as well as learning so much myself. I joined the Hannah's House team in 2014.  I currently hold a level 3 Nanny certificate and have worked with children for many years in after school and holiday programmes. Now that my own children are older I am in my first year of study in Early Childhood Education.
My husband, two children and I have a house in Stanmore Bay, we enjoy traveling as well as spending time at the beaches and parks here on the hibiscus coast. 
I look forward to working with your children and can't wait for the new challenges ahead.

I have recently joined the team at Hannah's House. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree and Diploma in Teaching Primary, having graduated in 2016.

I am especially passionate about providing a safe, fun and happy environment that will encourage your child to grow and develop into inquisitive lifelong learners.

I have lived on the Hibiscus Coast for the past 22 years, where I bought up my two, now grown, children and over the years we have enjoyed the many activities our environment has to offer; spending our summers on the beaches, and winters at the sports field. Now I enjoy taking my dog (Daisy) for walks along the beach.

Education Review Office 2018


Education Review Office Comment on our Teaching Practice

"Teachers know children well and respond to their cues appropriately. Their responsive and nurturing caregiving supports infants’ need for strong and secure attachments.

Teachers skilfully engage children in play that prompts them to collaborate and investigate ideas. They give children the time and space to explore, investigate and engage in learning.

Teachers plan collaboratively to respond to children's interests and strengths and to extend their learning. Portfolios contain a mix of group and individual learning stories. Teachers analyse children's learning, and their learning dispositions, and make good links to Te Whāriki, the early childhood curriculum. The daily diaries and online assessment tool are helping parents to have increased input and involvement into their children's learning.

The teaching team shares leadership roles and responsibilities. Teachers' professional practice shows that they are knowledgeable about effective teaching and learning strategies."
