Lauren – Oxford
Diploma of Teaching – ECE
Hi I’m Lauren an in-home educator with Organic Kids. I live in Oxford, North Canterbury with my partner, our son and cat Emmi.
I have over 10 years’ experience in early childhood education. I believe that children need to feel safe and secure forming a strong relationship with their carer before they can reach their full learning potential. With my calm, nurturing personality your children will have a great introduction into in-home learning environments. They will quickly gain a feeling of security and belonging within my small group of children.
I believe communication is the key to success. Open communication between families and whanau will be used in my care. All children will have equitable opportunities to learn, this will be achieved by using visual aids, communication and tactile play.
I believe that children need to be a part of our community, this will be met through attending Music group on a Monday morning, Story Times at the library on Friday mornings. Visits to Oxford Area School and the local park.
I have a passion for music, art and tactile play. In my care your children will have the opportunity to be involved in group times, art, water/messy play, science experiments, construction, baking and outdoor physical movement. I will encourage the children to help look after the natural world around us with learning about recycling, planting in our vegie/garden and harvesting the produce.
I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your family requirements and finding out if I am the right educator for your family.
