Sharon Ramsay is a creative qualified, registered Teacher, (Btch) who has had many years of experience Teaching children throughout the Hamilton and Waikato community.
Sharon along with her family and great team of entertainers have created a unique environment at the Magical Garden. We specialise in creating a very special experience for each child that visits us.
Children have many opportunities at the Magical Gardens to extend their imagination and become involved in an enchanted world.
Sharon and her fairy and elf friends have created a special secret fairy garden! Our fairies love to see the children having fun!
In the past few years Sharon has also established a Holiday Programme, this is Oscar approved and we provide a high quality programme. Our numbers are kept low to enable this to happen. Sharon and her group of experienced, creative team leaders enjoy offering the children attending lots of Drama, Art, craft and Music experiences. We provide a relaxed environment away from school, where children can explore their own interests and feel like they are not having to be rushed around all the time, We do provide trips, away from the venue, but limit these to one or two per week.
We believe in children empowering themselves and encourage children creativity by providing them with the resources to do this
We also provide them with lots of natural outdoor areas and plenty of large open spaces for them to play.
Our special wish to you is for us to create a special, memorable time, for your children in everything we do, we can’t do this on our own and are very lucky to have found such wonderful people to help us out over the years.
