Choosing the best childcare for your child can seem overwhelming as there are so many options available. What is important is to find childcare in a setting where your child feels safe, loved and accepted.
Benefits of Kiwikidz Homebased Childcare
For Your Child
The most import benefit is that the only person who will love your child more is you! We provide your child a home environment with no more than four children present. Of these, no more than two children can be less than two years old. This allows for plenty of one on one care so your child can develop a healthy and positive attachment with their Educarer.
Your child will also get to experience the wider world through trips to the park, beach, play group meetings and the library. Many of these trips will give your child the opportunity to play and interact with other Kiwikidz children in a larger social setting.
Our Smart Start programme aims to give your child the right start for their schooling years. Following the National Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whāriki, your child will learn the skills necessary for a confident start at school.
You want to know your child is in safe hands. We do too. Our carefully selected community of experienced and passionate home Educarers are chosen to be Kiwikidz Educarers as they:
- are loving and responsive
- respect your child’s individual needs
- provide stimulating and child-friendly environments for your child to learn and grow.
Keeping up with your child’s day and progress is made easy through our open channels of communication. We encourage you to actively engage with us through:
- Reading the Daily and Weekly Diaries – daily diaries let you see what has been happening in your child’s busy day, with weekly diaries being an emailed round up of the week and incorporating lots of photos.
- Participating in the All About Me/More About Me/Goal setting with your child’s Educarer– We ensure that your child’s individual learning needs are met by working on the goals you set initially, and then collaboratively thereafter.
- Attending Parent Teacher Evenings – a time for you to meet with your child’s visiting teacher to discuss their learning journey and to work collaboratively on setting goals to meet your child’s needs.
- Reviewing and contributing to your child’s portfolio – we encourage family/whanau contributions to our planning and to your child’s portfolio. You are welcome to add stories from home and comment on your child’s learning stories.
- Keep up-to-date with our bi-monthly Newsletters and frequent notices – emailed for convenience, printed as necessary. We update and post on Facebook regularly.
