About Amber - Chartwell

I believe that each individual child is extremely rich, inherently competent, capable and gifted, no matter what age or ability. I uphold respectful practice and am passionate about providing genuine quality care.

The play spaces I provide are arranged in a way to reflect real home life through open-ended resources, toys and learning opportunities. I believe it is important to let children lead their play and I plan around interests that arise.

I incorporate real life experiences for authentic learning and to empower children as they discover their endless capabilities. As a kaiako I also believe it is my responsibility to uphold and nurture the child's wairua and consider the child in the context of their whakapapa, acknowledging that children do not come to us alone, but with their whaanau and tuupuna within and alongside them.


"We are so glad we made the decision to enrol our son in home-based care. We couldn't ask for a better fit for our son and our family with our kaiako Amber. Amber is not only passionate but she is kind, caring, gentle-natured and empatheric with the children. We love her educational philosophy, the way she interacts with and speaks to all of the children and the positive learning environment she has created in the home. We love being able to receive regular updates and photos and are kept well-informed and up to date on what the days entail. We are so grateful to have Amber looking after our son and highly recommend home-based care."

Over the past year Amber has provided such an amazing support system for our little girl Maia. They have built such a cool relationship and I am so grateful to be able to leave Maia with someone I can trust and, most of all, someone Maia loves spending time with. Leaving Maia with anyone that wasn't family was definitely a struggle but Amber made the process very easy. We couldn't be happier with the level of care Amber provides and would highly recommend her services to any family looking for child care.

The home environment that Amber provides is everything I could ever want for my son. Amber is kind, compassionate, intuitive to the needs of my son and her ECE education informs her practice alongside her many positive personal attributes. From my observations Amber is calm and navigates the needs of all her children with ease. She is nurturing, firm but fair and this mades me feel confident that she will be able to lead Arthur as he gets older and support him to be the best little boy he can be.
