About Me

"Our youngest son needed more attention and stimulation than what he was getting at nursery and we were lucky enough to discover Louisa! She is seriously one-of-a-kind and we can see a difference in our son after a 'Louisa Day'."Family Testimonial

My vision

I want to provide a happy and nurturing environment for our children. I want to be the best possible daycare option for your family. I believe in building relationships, being receptive, being constant and loyal. I am very friendly and caring and I want to succeed by providing an exceptional and quality service for you and your child to enjoy.

My service

I offer the benefits of being registered with Porse as an in-home educator. Daily I complete a Storypark online journal entry for you to read, enjoy, feedback on and share with your family near and far.

I offer a unique set of value added services with the intention of involving you closer in our day. These include:

A family website giving families access to private pages for:

  • Resource sheets explaining how our play aids child development.
  • Calendar of events.
  • Lunchbox ideas.
  • Emergency plan and call tree.

Discover Kids is open Monday-Wednesday.

My background

Hello, I'm Louisa. I'm originally from the UK although I am now a New Zealand citizen. My husband and I returned to New Zealand in 2008 having spent a month here for our honeymoon. We believe that New Zealand offers a safer and happier environment for raising children.

We have two sons, Alfie and Henry. We happily spend a lot of time enjoying family events and attractions in and around Wellington. We don't have family in New Zealand and can identify with anyone bringing up a child without family nearby.

Alfie attended daycare between the ages of 6 and 13 months, so I can relate to the emotions of finding and settling on a childcare option that feels right. I am ready to be understanding, supportive and I hope to make the transition easier for your family.

My skills & qualifications

I underwent a change of career in April 2011 and have since gained experience in home-based education. I have completed the Level 4 National Certificate in Early Childhood Education & Care. I am also a qualified child first aider. I have experience caring for four children at one time, from birth through to five years of age and experience of caring for school age children additionally.

I have many skills that help with my role, besides being a mum I have excellent organisational, time management and multi-tasking skills, plus great communication skills and a professional attitude.

I am always up skilling and attend Porse professional development workshops and courses. Day to day I am always trying to learn and apply new skills.
