As an Educarer of mixed cultures I strongly believe in the importance of knowing who you are and where you are from. Language and culture make up a huge part of my day to day activities and I just love seeing my children in care thoroughly enjoying their play and learning within the bi-lingual environment I offer.

Glandre
Papamoa Beach

Hello! I'm Glandre but the children call me Gigi. I am 33 years old and a mother of two, Lilly-Anne who will be 8 this year, and Joshua, who will be turning 5 later this year. My husband and I made NZ our home 10 years ago. We are originally from South Africa.

We have 6 pets, because we just LOVE animals !! There are 2 dogs, 2 cats and 2 adorable rats.

I have been doing homebased childcare for about 6 years now. The reason why I love and enjoy it so much is because the children get more one on one attention. They are cared for in a warm and loving home environment. It brings me much joy watching these little human beings grow, developing skills and most importantly, having heaps of fun whilst learning through play.

I have many interests which I include the children in each day. I collect things from the beach, shells, driftwood, etc., as well as different things from nature walks that we go on.  We then bring them home to see what we can make.
Children are a big part of our lives and that’s the way we like it. Helping them grow is a great pleasure.

I am the mother of three adult children and grandmother two beautiful grandchildren. Being a mother is most precious to me and I equally love caring for other people’s children. I see magic and wonder in the world by seeing it through the eyes of a child. As a teacher in childcare centres I had wonderful relationships with the children-every morning they would rush up for cuddles or seek me out to read a book quietly or join in imaginary play outside

Our Educarers are recruited using a very strong selection process


We take the safety of your child very seriously.  Each and every one of our Educarers is thoroughly checked using our recruitment vetting system.  Part of this system requires all Educarers to have a squeaky clean police record and a full medical assessment.
Further to this, Co-ordinators (who are all fully qualified and registered early childhood teachers) complete a full assessment of every property to ensure that it meets Ministry of Education safety requirements.
