Welcome to Kuddles In-Home Childcare and Education
"Every child is precious" is our slogan

At Kuddles, we strongly believe that every child is precious and unique and should be treated with respect and dignity. We believe that a safe, nurturing and comfortable environment is crucial to a child’s physical, emotional, social, cognitive and creative growth.


We strive to provide culturally, linguistically and developmentally appropriate programmes that focus on the process of learning. We believe that a child is better able to understand new ideas when the ideas are expressed in their home language. A child is better able to understand a second language if they have stronger language skills in their home language. At the same time, an important part of preparing children for kindergarten or school is helping them to understand and speak English.


We believe that New Zealand has a unique bicultural heritage and we endeavour to reflect this in our environment and programme.


We believe that children learn through relationships. We believe in building strong relationships with children and their families as this contributes to the success of the child’s development within the home environment. It is the support that children get from the relationships that enable them to be confident in their own abilities and to “grow up as competent and confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body & spirit, secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valuable contribution” (Te Whãriki)


We believe that parents and family are the most significant persons in the child's life. We strive to work in a partnership with the families and encourage daily communication between parents and educators. Parents and family members are encouraged to actively participate in our learning programmes.

We support our educators with training, resources and opportunities to create a unique and meaningful learning experience to enhance each child's individuality and learning.

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.
