Kuddles In-Home Childcare & Education

Kuddles In-Home Childcare & Education

Personalised childcare in a home setting

At Kuddles, we strongly believe that every child is precious and unique and should be treated with respect and dignity.

A safe, nurturing and comfortable environment is crucial to a child’s physical, emotional, social, cognitive and creative growth.

 

Our Programme Coordinators /Visiting Teachers develop an individual educational programme specifically for your child in discussion with your child’s educator about the child’s interests and learning.

This individual programme is based on the Te Whãriki, The New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum.

Children get to do lots of exciting things with their educators. They dance, listen to music, sing songs, do painting, baking, gardening… They learn lots of new skills like balance, hand-eye coordination, colour, measuring and lots more! They do different activities such as blocks, play dough, painting, books, puzzles, sand and water play, listening to stories, indoor & outdoor play, thereby extending your child’s knowledge and helping lay the learning foundations for future!

Educators are guided to notice, recognise and respond to the child’s learning needs. They record the child’s learning in the child’s portfolio in the form of photos, art, craft… to show the learning process. Programme Coordinators also write learning stories for the children when they visit the educator. They provide lots of support and help plan and develop activities and fun play ideas for the forthcoming month that will encourage your child to explore and discover new things. They review the Child portfolios and leave quality resources for the children for the forthcoming month.

Physical Environment

Each Kuddles Educator provides care for the child in their own home which is checked by us to make sure that it complies with the Health and Safety requirements.

They can care for only 4 children up to the age of 6 years (only two under the age of 2 years) including their own children if any.

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.

 

Atmosphere

We believe that children learn through relationships which is why we build 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)

Parents and family are the most significant people 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.

“Thank you for your email and really appreciate that your program focusing on child development and there learning capabilities. As per my perception kids should be involved in the extracurricular activities that will enhance their skills and interest to learn more and more. Found really good that Shirin is giving knowledge to kids by celebrating all the festivals- Diwali, Halloween, father’s day etc. It is a fun knowledge for them.”

“Reena was so good with children. She would sit down on the floor and play with the kids whenever she comes to visit, and the kids just love her! Reena is always very supportive, friendly, and personable, and the kids always look forward to her visit.”
