I am a self employed Mum with a fantastic 8 year old boy named Zach a hilarious 2year old Leo & a hard working partner Mark. We live on beautiful Waiheke Island and I am a qualified teacher whom has stepped out of mainstream education to create an educational facility based around outdoor creative classrooms. I love music, art, laughing and inspiring creativity with children. We all like being outside & learning about our amazing world. Mark is a service manager and a D.J. Zach is a creative dragon wanting to be a happy inventor/engineer when he's older. Leo is smiling, happy wee man who likes anything that has wheels.I was raised on a farm in Sth Canterbury New Zealand. I have lived in NZ, England, Italy, Taiwan and Singapore spending 12 years abroad before coming back to NZ to settle on this amazing Island.

We are looking to share our home with someone who is creative, loves and respects children and willing to clean the house and get a little DIY done. I am looking for someone to assist in creative projects with children. This could be in teaching, photographing/film making/graphic design and spending time developing a school we are wanting to start! We want to hear about your part of the world, its education system and share your knowledge and learn from each other.
Also anyone keen on developing an eco projects most welcome! We need tracks cleared, things built, fencing, gardens made. Lots of stuff to set up an educational facility for children to learn creatively outside !
We also have a family farm in Sth Canterbury if you would like to volunteer down there too...my parents are easy going and you would have a wonderful south Island experience.
We live in a converted cafe on 18 acres of land. You would have your own Lotus belle tent 5m X 5m set up with bed drawers etc Glamping styles !
