Welcome to Kuddles In-Home Childcare and Education
What do we do?


Kuddles offer quality home based childcare for children to be cared for in the home of the Kuddles educator.  All Kuddles educators are police vetted, reference checked and we make sure that their homes are safe for the children in care and meets stringent health and safety requirements.

Children experience one-on-one interaction with a consistent and responsive educator. Each educator is allowed only four children at any time. This gives the child more child to adult time, so their needs are recognised and responded to. They have less exposure to illness and have their daily needs catered for individually. 

We strive to create an environment which allows your child to feel safe and secure to develop independence, self-esteem and social relationships with other children. We build positive, strong and trusting relationships with the parents, educators and children, with constant and reciprocal communication that respects confidentiality. We believe that parents are the child's first teacher and value their input and feedback in partnership with us, for the benefit of the child.  

Educators provide daily feedback of children's play experiences, learning opportunities and progress. Each child’s progress can be seen from his/her portfolio and Child Diary. They aim to help children grow up as competent, confident learners and communicators by providing different activities such as blocks, play dough, paints, books, puzzles, sand and water play, listening to stories, indoor & outdoor play, singing and dancing… thereby enhancing the child’s learning and development by expanding on these experiences, while following the Te Whãriki, the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum. They emphasise on building self-esteem and self-respect for the culture and ethnicity of each child. 


Our Programme Coordinators/Visiting Teachers are qualified New Zealand Early Childhood Teachers who support educators in providing quality home-based care and education by developing individual programmes to meet your child's needs that reflect their physical, emotional, social and cognitive needs. These programmes are based on Te size , the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum.  In addition to their visits, our Programme Coordinators organise Playgroups, outings and other activities to support educational care.

“Open and respectful communication between the coordinator, educators and families is a feature of the service. Children enjoy warm, positive relationships with adults and each other. Educators support children’s development of social skills and support children to play co-operatively. The small group size ensures that educators are able to provide individual attention to children. Children’s ethnicity and home language is celebrated” - Education Review Office , 2012.
