Hi, my name is Kerry.
I am an Educarer for Creators at Home - Canterbury, providing quality home-based childcare.
I live with my husband Lee and our Jack Russell’s Rilee and Max. We live in our own home in a quiet cul-de-sac in Rolleston.
I have been providing home based childcare since 2009 and have my National Certificate in Early Childhood Education and Care - Level 3. I am continuing on my study journey through the Open Polytechnic and completed 4301 Early Childhood Context late last year. This year I completed 4302 Early Childhood Professional Practice and I have my National Certificate in Early Childhood Education - Level 4.
Our home provides a warm, safe, child friendly environment for your children. We have our wonderful playroom, which provides a space for the children to feel at home within the setting. This is a space that has been set up with the children in mind, our playroom gives each child the opportunity to easily access the toys and resources within the setting and where they will feel comfortable while they learn, discover and explore. I offer a great learning environment with resources to assist each child as they grow - We have an art cupboard which is filled with everything we need for art activities, resources to assist the children in their learning journey and help get them ready for school. Outdoors we have a large child friendly section with our own fort, swings, slide, trampoline, water table & various ride-on toys.
Each child has their own learning journal where stories/photos are added on a regular basis, each family can access their child’s learning through Educa and have the opportunity to add stories of their own. We have our own visiting teacher who visits us on a regular basis - Providing support and assistance to the children and myself.

As of August 2018 - I am currently full.
I have more space available in early February 2019 - But this space won't last long...
I already have my existing families requiring more space and I am doing my best to fit everyone in.
Learning is their journey.Let them navigate.Push them to explore.Watch them discover.Encourage their questions.Allow them to struggle.Support their thinking.Let them fly.
