Welcome to Kuddles In-Home Childcare and Education
Important Points for Educators

KUDDLES is a member of the New Zealand HomeBase Childcare Association. We can guide you  with how you can also be a member of the association.


Our educator selection process involves adhering to the Licensing Criteria and we do a thorough check of all educator homes to ensure that it is safe for the child in care.


We also do Police Vetting for the educator and all adults in the house over the age of 17. This is followed by a Reference Check.


As an Educator with KUDDLES, you contract yourself to us to provide childcare from your own home. 


Referrals- If you refer a child to us, we will pay you a weekly subsidy on top of your normal payments* (Conditions apply)


All it really takes is a great imagination, a good squeeze of caring and a dash of commitment. We know the rewards that being a Home-Based Educator can give you, and we will provide you with support and inspiration along the way.


Kuddles aims to help all of our Educators set up successful businesses that provide a safe and fun learning environment for all of the children we look after.



If you are passionate about working with children in a family home or welcoming children into your own home, or already caring for a child then we would love to hear from you. Contact us today to talk with our friendly staff or send us an online inquiry here

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.
