Alana Smith
Educarer

St. Kilda, Dunedin, Otago

Hi, I'm Alana and I have three daughters aged between 6-12 years.

I have been a home-based Educarer for 3 1/2 years. Young children are such fun! And I enjoying supporting their learning and watching them grow. Children have lots of space both indoors and outdoors to explore and discover their interests. Popular activities include reading, puzzles, art & craft, family play and role play, construction, music & movement and drama. My flat and large backyard is full of fun activities including a slide, ground height trampoline and sandpit, as well at lots of space for riding bikes, ball games and messy play. Through children's interests we explore important learning areas including mathematics, literacy and science, as well as how to be great thinkers, questioners and being social too.

At Creators@home with Alana we love to get out in the community including going to playgroup and music sessions, visiting parks and playgrounds, the Botanic Gardens and the Library. We also join our friends at Creators@home to go on excursions including going on the buses. Recently we had a very special visit to the Orokonui Ecosanctuary.

I am available Monday to Friday, 6a.m.-6p.m. or negotiable hours to suit your needs. My available spaces are flexible, so do contact me to discuss your requirements. I look forward to hearing from you.
