Home Based Educators

Home-based educators are first choice for kiwi families

Home-based educators are now the most popular choice for parents seeking quality child focused early childhood education. The home-based educator works in her own home, and provides a quality educational programme for up to 4 pre-school children. She is supported by her visiting teacher to provide opportunities for children to participate in experiences that suit their individual interests within the day to day happenings of a home setting. Home-based educators choose the days and times they work, and can offer flexibility in hours.

In order to choose an educator for your child, the visiting teacher will discuss with you and match your family requirements with a pre-selected and screened educator. Emphasis is placed on matching your specific needs with the appropriate educator.

Our home-based educators hold or are working towards the Open Polytechnic level four Certificate in Early Childhood Practice and hold a current First Aid certificate.
