Welcome to Kuddles In-Home Childcare and Education
WINZ Subsidies

Work and Income New Zealand (WINZ) offer a childcare subsidy for a maximum of 50 hours a week, of upto $3.98/hr depending on the joint income of the parents. This childcare subsidy is a payment that helps families with the cost of pre-school childcare. Parents who are not working may be entitled to a 9 hour childcare subsidy from WINZ.

All WINZ payments depend on the family income and other factors and need to be discussed with WINZ directly.

Once approved, the WINZ subsidies are administered by Kuddles to cover part of your childcare costs. Parents are responsible for notifying WINZ of any changes in their circumstances that may affect the subsidy, such as your child being on holiday or changes to your personal circumstances.

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.

"Open communication between the coordinator,educators, and families is a feature of the service.  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." - Education Review Office, 2012.
