Sonia – Redwood
Diploma of Education and Care – ECE
New Zealand National Nanny Certificate
Hi, I’m Sonia, an In-home educator with Organic Kids. I live in Redwood with my husband, two daughters and our cat. Before we had our children I had sixteen years working here in NZ and overseas Nannying. In that time I looked after children ranging from babies right through to teenagers.
For the past five years I have been a stay at home Mum, working on a casual basis looking after children in my own home. I have also on occasion had trainee Nannies from Rangi Ruru Nanny School, who have worked alongside me while working towards their diplomas.
Now my eldest daughter is about to start school I am really looking forward to my next adventure with Organic Kids. I’m really passionate about children being raised in a home environment and believe they can really thrive. I have set up an indoor and outdoor learning environment where children can explore, enjoy themselves and stay safe while doing so. We have just started a vegetable garden to go with our berries and fruit trees which children will be encouraged to help maintain and contribute towards.
We are lucky to have a reserve with a fantastic duck pond and playground just behind us, as well as Willow Bank which we visit regularly too. Other learning experiences that I will provide include music group, story times at Redwood Library and baking.
I look forward to meeting you and your child and working alongside you to help your child be the best and happiest they can be.
