Hi, I am a 48 year old mother of 2 teenagers and 1 child. We moved to NZ due to my husbands work since January 2017. I'm born and raised in Holland. We moved in 2007 to Kenya where we had a flowerfarm near Nairobi. In Kenya I have been working as a pre-K teacher for 8 years at the Netherlands School Society in Nairobi,where I taught young children age 1 1/2 to 5 years old. After Kenya we went back to Holland for 1 1/2 year and there I found myself a job at a creche and an afterschool care centre for children between 4 and 12 years old. Now we moved to NZ and we are settled in I would love to go back working and caring for kids again. The spontaneousness and curiosity of children is very endearing. As I still have to bring my kids to school from Fernhill to Havelock North at the moment I’m only available weekdays from 9.00 to 15.00 a 15.30 o’clock.
