KIDDZ provide quality early childhood education and care in homebased environments in Christchurch and Westport.
We use carefully selected Educators to provide your child’s care, and support them with regular visits, equipment, playgroups and ongoing professional development. Your Co-ordinator and Educator together will develop an educational programme that is developmentally appropriate for your child’s needs, using Te Whāriki - the Early Childhood Curriculum.
Care is arranged in Educator’s homes where there will be a maximum of four children, and never more than two children under two (however special arrangements for multiple births or siblings can be arranged.) Children respond well to small groups and are able to participate fully in all activities. With readily available adult input they learn quickly and easily. Educators are also able to continue with normal family activities such as shopping, library visits, and trips to the park, which provide invaluable learning experiences for children.
