Welcome to Kuddles In-Home Childcare and Education
  1. We talk to you about your needs and provide you with options and a complete advisory service on everything to do.  
  2. We can help you find a suitable Educator, or you might have someone looking after the child already. 
  3. All of our Educators meet our strict health and safety guidelines. They are police vetted along with all adults over 17 if any that live with them in their house.
  4. If you are already having someone looking after the child, we will advise you about the requirements to be met in order to register with us with regards to health and safety, police vetting and reference checking criteria.
  5. We are approved by Work and Income as a licensed provider, so depending you’re your family income you may/may not be eligible to get Childcare Subsidy through WINZ. 
  6. We will introduce you to the most suitable educator/s closest to your requirement depending on the spaces available with the educator/s.
  7. Once you have made up your mind with starting with the educator, you will be asked to complete an enrolment form to enrol your child our service. We will also require proof of the child’s date of birth (passport copy/birth certificate) and the immunisation certificate for your child.

Once your child’s enrolment form with your child’s proof of birth and immunisation certificate are back with us, we will confirm enrolment for your child with the educator.

Post Registration

The Programme Coordinator will contact you to organise some time prior to the start date for settling the child with the educator to ensure that the child feels safe and secure in the absence of their parent/carers. She will also offer some free hours for this settling period.

Your child will be given a Child Portfolio which will become a valuable keepsake of your child’s learning and development for you. .

Based on the educator feedback about the child’s learning, the Programme Coordinator will make an Individualised Learning Programme, based on the Te Whãriki, the NZ Early Childhood Curriculum, for your child.

Every Visit the Programme Coordinator will discuss your child’s learning, review the Child’s portfolio. They will also leave resources and toys for the child. In addition to monthly home visits, our Programme Coordinators also organise play groups, outings and other activities to support educational care.

I would like to thank Kuddles and your team, specially his educator for the great caring and loving nature given to him in our absence. He was well adjusted with the educator and no doubt she has a natural bond with kids and also is very caring, loving, mindful, cheerful, trustworthy & honest educator.
