No-1 Home Based Childcare
At No-1 Home Based Childcare we believe children learn the best in a home environment. We believe that because of small ratios in our home based settings, children get the best quality early education and care that gives them the best foundation for lifelong learning. Our aim is to provide children with a caring and positive environment that encourages individuality, cooperation, creativity, imagination, contribution and well being. Educators strive to foster an environment which allows every child to feel a sense of belonging which ensures a safe environment for every child. Our Programme Coordinators (Registered Teachers) guide and support all Educators to access the New Zealand Curriculum and help them to develop an understanding of the Ministry of Education Requirements.
What You Get?
•Excellent ratios. There a maximum of four children in the care of one Educator, where there can only be a maximum of two children under the age of two years old.
•Children develop reciprocal and responsive relationships with one Educator, particularly beneficial for children under two years of age.
•Children participate in regular routine and activities with Educators such as shopping, library visits, and trips to the park. This provides meaningful learning experiences for children as they pick up early literacy, numeracy and socialisation skills.
•Being cared by an Educator ensures that children's daily routines are taken cared for. Educators provide education and care in a predictable, calm, fun and safe environment that enables children to build trust.
•Flexibility of hours, education and care can be arranged to suit parent's needs.
•Visits from Registered Early Childhood Teachers to support the Educator, child and family at least once a month.
