Transition To  School Teacher / Visiting Teacher

Ni sa bula vinaka

My name is Mereani Davis and am one part of the amazing teaching team here with Home Graduates. I have worked in the Early Childhood sector for 25 years and have worked with infants, toddlers, and young children. In my role as Transition to School visiting teacher, I will be working closely alongside our educators and whanau to ensure a smooth transition to
Primary school for your tamariki. I look forward to working with you all and having a lot of fun along the way.

Kia Ora Koutou,

My name is Tui Jenkins and I am a blessed partner, mum and nannymum. I have been able to have always worked with our tamariki which has been my ongoing dream. I am a fully qualified New Zealand
registered teacher. At present I hold 30 years plus working
experience. I believe in working with whanau and the wider community in helping our tamariki to develop their own being and develop
working theories and interests by exploring the beautiful world around them.
