Kidiwise was started by myself and my son, Joss, in February 2010. It has since doubled in size and developed into a Centre children love coming to - there's never a dull moment! I believe Kidiwise provides a top notch environment for your child to develop fully educationally, socially and physically with age appropriate sensitivity."
I have been working at Kidiwise for over nine years. Being able to share the great outdoors at Kidiwise with children is something I love. My vision is to support children in developing their strengths and dispositions and to scaffold them through their journey to becoming competent, confident, lifelong learners. I strongly believe in children’s rights and that they should be heard and recognised for their individual strengths."
"I have extensive office administrative experience. I am a mother with one adorable son who loves Kidiwise and my new baby, Cora in the Nestlings."
I love working with Annie and Darrielle. Its great having a large outdoor play area for our babies at Kidiwise. People say I am a natural baby teacher.
"I am originally from the Solomon Islands and moved here 21 years ago with my husband. I come from a very close knit family background that values children and where family and communities and very important. I believe loving the child is the first step when teaching."
"All children deserve the chance to have fun and be kids. "I believe it is important for our tamariki to learn in a well supported, safe enviroment and to explore and enjoy our great outdoors"
Embedded in my personal teaching philosophy is a strong bicultural lens; it embodies Te Ao Māori, te reo Māori and a commitment to authentic culturally responsive practices. Ko te ahure te tamaiti arahia o tatou mahi - Let the uniqueness of the child guide our work. I believe each child comes with their own unique story, one which I endeavor to learn, support, foster, document and celebrate. Whānaungatanga is central to my practice, whether it be with interactions with tamariki, whānau, fellow kaiako, or the wider community. I believe that children learn best through play and by providing an environment that is warm, inviting, supportive, accepting and conducive to learning.
"My vision for the children is to help them on their way to growing into independent, creative, confident learners and to give them a secure, nurturing environment to achieve this. I love each and every little one we have in the Moreporks"
I am a registered teacher and I've chosen to work at Kidiwise because I love being a part of the team and teaching in such a natural, challenging environment.
I have worked as an English teacher in China for four years
"I enjoy connecting with children through song, movement and through discovery and adventure in our unique, natural environment. Encouraging manners, caring for others, ourselves and our environment is important to me. Kidiwise's natural philosophy aligns with my personal beliefs "
"I enjoy working with young children, seeing them gain independence and skills to prepare for life. My passion is for young children learning and developing; guiding them through their early stages of development."
I'm a young enthusiastic teacher. Kidiwise ticks all the boxes for me with its wonderful unique facilities giving children the ability to extend themselves.
"Originally from Germany, with experience in childcare. I enjoy working with children and watching them learn about themselves, their environment and getting them school ready. Kidiwise reflects a lot of my values and beliefs; natural learning environment, free play and exploration of different cultures."
I am excited and happy in my job here at Kidiwise. The low sugar and preservative free philosophy is in line with my healthy eating principles. I am passionate about educating and nurturing our future leaders and love watching them grow".
Hi I'm Susan, I have worked in ECE for almost 20 years. I particularly enjoy physical activities, sports, music and dancing. I like ICT, mathematics (including puzzles and contstruction play). I also enjoy arts and crafts, reading with children, messy and tactile activities, including playdough. I especially love animals and nature, and sharing this in a explorative and creative way with children.
I'm a mother to one returning to work. While on maternity leave I was involved with the local Play Centre. I am passionate about working with children. I was previously employed in hospitality as a trained chef and maitra 'd, then for a company at Tauranga Port as a health, safety and environmental officer.
