Maddi

Maunga teitei teacher

Hi my name is Maddi, I grew up in raglan moved away for 7 years and now I’m back with my daughter Sadie.

I am super excited to be working and teaching at Magnolia Tree Childcare Raglan. My teaching philosophy is based around Magda Gerbers RIE philosophy. I believe we should trust and respect our tamariki to become self-led learners, by supporting and empowering them to follow there own interests and discover new opportunities. I believe as teachers we support this by building relationships with whanau and tamariki so children feel a sense of belonging when coming into a centre environment
