Ko Andrea tōku ingoa
Nō Tokoroa ahau
I have just returned to Jemmas after taking some time out to up skill. Prior to this I had three wonderful years with many children receiving education and care.
I believe in children directing their own learning. I support this with a variety of activities to learn, by working alongside and with good communication to enhance their educational, care needs, and interests.
I am Diane Ross I live in Matamata. I have lived here for 30 years.
I live with my husband. We have 5 children between us 8 Grandchildren and 5 step grandchildren. So we are very busy with all the Grandchildren.
In my spare time I like to garden we have a large veggie garden. I like to go and watch the grandchildren play sports.
Tena koutou katoa
Ko Lara i toku ingoa, Ko Ngapuhi me Te Arawa oku Iwi, engari e noho ana au ki Tokoroa. Nga mihi mahana ki a koutou. I am a mum of four grown kids and two beautiful mokopuna. I have taught in ECE centres for about 16 years teaching in mainstream, bilingual & kaupapa maori and also Punanga reo Kuki Airani.
I have a Diploma of Teaching ECE and I also have a full teacher's registration. I believe that it takes a whanau to nurture and raise a child so both children and adults feel supported.
Kia Ora, Hello my name is Rowene Potaka otherwise known as “Row”.
I have raised seven children and three gorgeous adorable grandchildren.
Before starting homebased care, I worked in retail at the Base in Hamilton before taking some time to decide on what I wanted to do next.
I kept going back to wanting to work with preschool aged children, our beautiful little ones. I also wanted to work from home and cut travelling to work out.
My aim is to offer a good trusting support network for our busy parents that work hard to give their children the life they deserve.
