Kia ora, My name is Ngakeita

My interest in becoming an Early childhood teacher started when I became a mother. Watching my son grow, learn, and develop inspired me to begin my ECE journey in 2014. Since then I have gained much experience working in various roles with all age groups. I have completed the Bachelor of Education program at Mt Albert Unitec and have gained a certificate in Rongoa Māori (Traditional Māori healing). Rongoa Māori is something I do in my spare time as I love exploring the plant life outdoors and creating herbal remedies. My teaching philosophy is inspired by RIE and Emmi piker’s approach. Respect, trust and seeing the child as competent. I think it is of utmost importance to provide children with a safe fun, fulfilling and enriching environment where they can explore & express themselves freely. I find working with children of all ages to be a very enjoyable and rewarding role that is a continuous learning journey for all those involved.
