Organic Kids – North New Brighton (Mel)
Hi, I’m Mel. I’m so excited to be joining the Organic Kids team as an in home educator. I live with my husband and baby girl in North New Brighton. We share our home with our friendly dog, (who has her own space to play) cat and goldfish.
Since returning from 5 years working as a nanny overseas, I have worked in early childhood centres in Christchurch for the past 11 years in a variety of roles. With the arrival of Hazel last year, we have decided to stay home together and invite other children to join us!
I believe that children thrive when they feel safe, secure and happy with those caring for them, so building a relationship based on respect and trust in a small cosy environment is important to me. We have been busy creating a wonderful space for the children to enjoy where both indoor and outdoor play creates endless opportunities for imagination and learning.
I love the community we live in and all it has to offer, as a part of my programme we will regularly visit the beach, bottle lake forest and music/movement sessions at the library, as well as Organic Kids events. Our programme at home will incorporate baking, tending to the vege garden, and caring for animals alongside lots of opportunities for free play and exploring any interests that your child may have.
I look forward to meeting you and providing care to you and your family.
