Kia ora.

After a number of years in the banking industry I have decided on a career change. Which now leads me here as a Educator in Gisborne. Which by the way I am loving. I am happily married, with 2 boys who are our world. Anyway enough about me ;) and more about what I can offer your tamariki :)

At home with Geri you can expect to see and feel an environment that is loving and safe for your tamariki and whanau. I believe in building a positive relationship with tamariki & whanau through communication, rituals, understanding and respect, which in return builds trust & a solid foundation enabling your tamariki the best possible foundation for their development and learning.

Regular outings provided throughout our community is how I provide a program Rich in child lead play. I provide the environment, your tamariki create the learning and opportunities they see through their eyes. From gymnastics on tree vines, balancing acts on logs, sticks that turn into swords or have magical powers their imagination turns any environment into a magical haven. By allowing them the freedom to learn and explore through play anything is possible. Never underestimate the power of play. Play is their mahi.

Your tamariki are our future and deserve nothing sort of the best!
