Home Educator – Ashurst
My name is Kaaren, I live in Ashhurst, Palmerston North. During my teaching career, I have worked with children as young as babies, preschoolers, primary and intermediate ages. I have spent many hours working with children who have a challenging behaviour, special needs and abilities while supporting their learning journey with their families.
I have a Teaching Degree from Massey University and I have a Nanny Diploma as well. I have worked for 25 years in various teaching environments: Montessori, Life Education, and Early Childhood centres.I was involved in Home Childcare when my 3 children were preschoolers many years ago.
I have always enjoyed being with children and sharing the love of learning with them, catching those teachable moments. I enjoy writing children songs and have published one about 5 little
sparrows- it comes with a book, cd and velcro sparrows on aboard. I live on a quiet ¼ acre section with my husband and 2 cats. I offer a creative, inclusive environment where love, compassion, and a
sense of humour is an integral part of daily routines and rhythms for children’s learning. I love developing children’s musical skills/talents with singing, waiata, teaching ukulele and using my many
puppets as fun communication tools with them..
Some of the activities I offer:
- Music – singing and dancing
- Art and craft
- Outdoor playing
Where holistic education gives children wings to fly.
