Maura – Oxford
Diploma in Montessori Teaching
Level 6 Advanced Supervision in Childcare
Hi I’m Maura, I have recently returned from an extended holiday with our family in Ireland, finding a lovely home in Oxford to settle with my husband Paul, our two son’s Tadhg and Cian and our dog Bán. New Zealand has been my home for over 10 years now.
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 run a free play program where your child gets to choose what they want to do. Some of the opportunities offered on a regular basis are helping to feed and care for our animals, helping to care for our veggie garden, arts & crafts, water/messy play, baking, bike riding and so much more. 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.
