I believe that children learn best when they feel their contribution is valued, that they are listened to and respected and that they have the time, space and opportunity to explore, create, make mistakes, problem solve, practice and most importantly have fun.

More recently starting my own family has given me even more reason to stay in Kerikeri and provide the same environment of love, care, community and respect for my son, Franklin with his dad and my partner Ben. Which is also what I would love for your child as their teacher here at Inspiring Minds.
