Choosing an Educator

Choosing an educator

Choosing an educator

The choice is yours. We are here to help you understand what you are looking for in childcare.

When you have enquired about our services, a childcare consultant will contact you to organise a meeting to discuss educators that will be a good fit for you and your child. If you find an educator that you like, the childcare consultant will organise a time for you to meet them in their home.

After the introduction, the childcare consultant will talk with you about whether you want to go ahead with the care arrangement. If everyone is happy, they will help you with the enrolment.

Carefully selected educators

Most of our educators have been parents themselves, and they are all passionate about nurturing children and growing their imaginations. We check they are able to provide a safe and child-friendly home environment. We carry out police and background checks on all our educators to ensure children’s safety.

Educator training

All our educators complete an educator training course covering child development and the importance of play, to first aid and the early childhood curriculum, Te Whāriki. Each educator has on-going professional development to learn more about topics like positive guidance and learning through play.
