**Currently on maternity leave** My name is Sophie Carrick, and I have been given an amazing opportunity to offer Home-based care in Blenheim, with Little Red Fox ECE. I have 2 children of my own, Koda (7) and Lillie (3), both of whom have attended / are attending Home-based care which sparked my passion for Early Childhood Education. Whilst working my dream job as a Home-based educator I am also working towards my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education on a part time basis out of work hours I also hold a current First Aid certificate. In my home we promote individuality, exploration play and sensory learning – all of which are crucial for brain development and are also a heap of fun! We also are very community orientated and attend playgroups, music groups and swimming excursions with the other Little Red Fox families on a regular basis, so you can be assured that your children are getting the most out of their day. I look forward to hearing from you and your little one!
