Getting Started

The Enrolment Process

After initial enquiry, we will provide you with a choice (where possible) of Home Based Educators. You can ring the Educator yourself to make a suitable time to visit with your child or we are happy to arrange a meeting and accompany you so that we may offer support.

It is important to take some time when making the decision on your choice of Educator and not to decide in front of the Educator.

Please remember that the Educator has the right to say no if they do not feel comfortable with the arrangements. Try to spend some time with your child and the Educator before the starting day. This helps you to all know each other prior to care beginning.

Emergency care can be arranged if your Educator should become ill.

Te Whariki - The National Curriculum

Each child’s educational learning experience is based on Te Whariki - the National Curriculum. The Coordinator and Educator will plan your child’s “Next Steps” and we welcome input from Parents/Whanau.

As part of our formal observations Educators and Coordinators use digital cameras to record children’s progress. Extra copies are available on request, also colour versions by e-mail. Every child has a portfolio Book recording their time at the Educators and this will go with them when they leave the service.

Food

We ask Parents/Whanau to provide the food their child will need whilst in care.
