Miss Verena has 25 years experience ranging from kindergarten right the way through to secondary school in a range of settings, most notably several Steiner schools.
Verena has recently moved back to Lismore to be closer to her family and her grandchildren and now lives in Lismore Heights with a beautiful outlook.
She decided to leave class teaching in order to focus on a smaller group of children so she can foster strong bonds and relationships within a creative community.
Verena’s parents are Swiss Toymakers and so a large number of her toys are handmade and painted by her father. She has spent a long time setting up a warm inviting environment that the children and families are going to love!
Verena has a dedicated playroom. Centrestage is a gorgeous rainbow chindi rug that creates an open space for children to play. Her shelves are full of nature toys, seedpods, dolls, trucks and vehicles, moving toys, and more. She has a home corner and children love to make cups of tea, and prepare ‘food’ for lunch.
Verena’s children rest in the room next to the play area. It’s a quiet calm space for children to relax and rejuvenate so they have energy for the later part of the day.
Verena’s garden is accessed by a brick pathway. It opens out into a marvellous magical wonderland, with plenty of grassed open space, an undercover sandpit, a veggie patch, and a cubby house and slide. Verena also brings out portable equipment to support her curriculum and program activities for the week.
Children eat with Verena in the undercover verandah. Children learn skills such as using forks and spoons, manners, and making choices during mealtimes. Mealtimes are sacred as providing for lifelong nutrition and healthy digestion is a big part of Verena’s daily rhythm.
