Educator Yvonne

Kia ora, my name is Yvonne. 

Location: Dargaville


I am a qualified and registered early childhood teacher. I studied and gained my Early Childhood Diploma through 'Te Tari Puna Ora-NZ Childcare Association'. I have been working in early childhood for over 30 years beginning in Play Centre with my own children, and then in various early childhood settings over the years. I have four grown up children and a beautiful granddaughter as well as two more grandchildren on the way (so far). I have decided to move into Home Based Childcare with North Kidz, because I enjoy the smaller family setting where I can get to know children and families on a more personal level.

I believe that early childhood is a very important time in a child's education, because they are being set up for a positive interest in learning for the rest of their lives. Learning should be fun and an extension on interests the children already have, as we give them the tools to move up to the next level. Children are hugely affected by their environment so it is important to provide a safe, happy environment where children are confident to explore. I believe it is healthy for children to have lots of natural outdoor experiences and opportunities to explore their environment at their own pace and level.   I like to involve Families/Whanau as much as possible as they are a huge part of their children's development.

I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child over the time they are in my care. Please feel free to share any thoughts or aspirations you have for your child.
