Maura – Oxford
Diploma in Montessori Teaching
Level 6 Advanced Supervision in Childcare
Hi I’m Maura, I live in Oxford with my husband Paul, and our two son’s Tadhg and Cian and our dog Bán. We also have Poppy the horse as well as chickens and sheep. I’m from Ireland and have lived in New Zealand for the past 6.5 years.
I am trained in early childhood education and believe children’s social and emotional development is the foundation to their future learning. For this reason I strive to build strong secure attachments that are based on trust and respect with all the children in my care, from here I follow each child’s individual interests offering encouragement and guidance. I believe children learn from “doing” and while demonstrations on how to complete a task or activity is sometimes necessary the real learning happens when children complete these tasks themselves.
During your child’s time with me they will be involved in helping to feed and care for our animals, arts & crafts, water/messy play, baking, visits to our local music group and the local children’s park. Your child will have the freedom to explore their own individual interests and I will strive to provide resources and opportunities that meet these interests.
I’m very excited about being part of Organic Kids, I look forward to meeting you and your family and discussing your needs.
