Lara

Tena koutou katoa

Ko Lara 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 children and two beautiful mokopuna. I have taught in ECE centres for about 16 years teaching in mainstream, bilingual and kaupapa maori and also Punanga reo Kuki Airani. I have a Diploma of Teaching ECE and I also have a full teachers registration. I believe that it takes a whanau to nurture and raise a child so both children and adults feel supported. I enjoy being with whanau and friends, kapahaka, singing and music, creative art, cooking and summer holidays. I welcome the opportunity to teach and nurture tamariki and their whanau in my home in a safe, warm, friendly and fun environment. I have moderate te reo maori skills and a good knowledge of tikanga Maori. I am comfortable learning about different ethnic culture and meeting people from all walks of life. I am confident and experienced with very young infants and can support new parents. I also have personal experience in working with tamariki with special needs and I welcome their special talents.

No reira, Nau mai haere mai ki toku kainga o “Whaea Lara’s Place, Homebased Edu-care.”
