I started in childcare more than 10 years ago, I’m from Syria. I was previously a teacher in primary school. I have studied law for four years in Syria prior to coming to New Zealand. As a Educarer I see the importance of children developing in the early years. I have a love for writing and I have published many books in the Arabic language and also in English and French.

The languages I speak are Arabic and English. It is through this communication that one can express themselves like children do in the early years, having a great imagination which I love them to explore and tell beautiful stories through expression.

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.
