** Reggio Emilia Inspired thinking honours the 3 Teachers in the life of the child: 1) Parent, 2) Classroom and 3) Community …. An active living-learning milieu within the family setting…a Home-Schooling opportunity from birth onward, especially the development of language and observational skills for children [in the routine of daily life, having the opportunity to experience the outside environment through daily walkabouts and exploration of cultural experiences within the childs’ community]

One will find the experience with me, alive and involved allowing for the child/ren to experience everything in their surroundings with a ‘hands-on’ approach.

Please note: I have lived-on and off-site when working as Governess/Home & Family Management. My own residence is always within a quick bicycle or walk to my place of employment to allow for ongoing support and convenience. In situations where I have lived on-site, long-term; my preference is a private ‘home’ of one bedroom flat / over-top garage suite and/or home-sharing with other employees.
