Angel Gerrard

Visiting Teacher - Manawatu | Bachelor of Teaching (ECE)

Kia ora, ko Angel Gerrard ahau, and I am a Visiting Teacher for the Palmerston North area.

I was born in Rotorua, and lived there for a little while before my life’s journey took me to many other places within New Zealand. I met and married my husband and had 3 children in Gisborne, there’s is where I consider home to be, having lived there for nearly 15 years. While living in Gisborne I completed my Bachelor of teaching ECE through Te Tari Puna Ora o Aotearoa. My work over this time was going from a homebased educator, to working in a childcare centre and then a preschool. We moved to Palmerston North to follow new career adventures. I have worked in childcare centre and Kindergartens in and around Palmerston North.

I believe that children learn and grow to their best potential in environments that a familiar and comfortable for them. PAUA promotes whanau care and I know this is where the greatest learning is developed. Home based early childhood provides smaller ratios and more quality learning and caring. I consider that you can’t get a better learning environment than that. I will endeavour to help and support your child’s journey with PAUA and will support them to reach their full potential creating the foundations for a bright future.

I look forward to supporting our PAUA homebased educators and getting to know the children and their whanau/families.
