  • If you have someone looking after the child already, She/he will need to at least look after your child at a regular basis for 18 hours per week. We will make an initial visit to the house that the child is looked after and give more information about our programme and have an initial health and safety check.
  • Once you have made up your mind to start with us, please complete all required forms to enrol your child

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

If you have your own educator, we will do police vetting on your educator and advise you when the police vet is back.

After enrolment

Your visiting teacher 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.

A detailed Learning Journey is written after each visit, documenting your child’s strengths, interests and abilities. This becomes a valuable keepsake, celebrating their early learning milestones and achievements.

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.
