Leanne Chapman

Visiting Teacher - Whanganui | Diploma of Teaching (ECE)

My name is Leanne and together with my family we have been in Whanganui since the beginning of 2000. Working in early childhood is something I had always wanted to do since leaving school; and after having my own family, decided to pursue my career in early childhood teaching when an opportunity arose to do my study in 2001. Upon completing my Diploma in ECE Teaching I worked for seven years in an early childhood centre based learning programme before moving into the home based sector.

While working in home based I have seen many wonderful learning experiences provided for children of all ages through the programmes and activities our Educators plan for their PAUA children. Seeing the learning that happens within the home environment, the support provided by the Educators and the relationships that grow and form between the families, Educators and their Visiting Teacher is such an awesome opportunity to experience.

Being a part of children’s lives is such a wonderful gift and it is a privilege to be connected to the many families and whanau groups within our community.
