Nose heavy is much better than tail heavy. Safe CoG is usually rated as 20 - 30% chord back from Leading Edge. For this model being a high wing Cessna style - I would plump for 20% and be prepared for her to want to put nose down ..

There's an old saying …

Nose Heavy - fly again
Tail Heavy - Fly once.
