We have some rare childcare space in Rangiora, Canterbury, with Bronnie….for an under or over 2 year old:

My name’s Bronnie and I am a fully qualified and experienced ECE teacher, and work with Stems FROM HOME. I have three children: a 10 year old, a 3 year old and an 8 month old. We live on a small lifestyle block just out of Rangiora. As I teacher, I have a strong belief in curriculum of care- that firstly a child needs to know they are loved and safe within their environment. Relationships are the key; having a strong and reciprocal relationship - whanaungatanga.
I use nature and natural resources as a basis of my teaching and learning programmes, giving a child an appreciation and understanding for the natural world, while also creating a sense of curiosity, and a desire to experiment and use their imagination. I also encourage ‘risky play’ and allow children to set and explore their own challenges in a child led, free play space.
I’m pretty flexible with days and times as long as we can work around school drop off and pick up each second week.

If you would like your child to be cared for in a healthy, stimulating and nurturing home environment, please contact us today!
