Welcome to Kuddles In-Home Childcare and Education
Lina Tailor

Hi! I am Lina.. I have completed my Early Childhood education Level 5 and also have done a first-aid course. I've experience working with a day-care centre for 2 years and am passionate about providing quality early childhood care and education. 

The reason I embraced this career is I love children. I think that there is nothing as special as watching a child grow and learn. I provide a safe, secure, loving and enjoyable environment for children grow and learn through play.
I always make sure I have lots of fun with each and every child I look after. It would be my pleasure to look after your little treasure.
Looking forward to meeting you and your child."

Shimu Akter, Papatoetoe

Hi there,
My name is Shimu Akter and currently I live in Papatoetoe. I have one daughter, she is grown up & settled now.

I have lots of experience with children of all ages. I am working as an Early Childhood educator.  I am  friendly, caring, honest and have a great attitude to life..

My house is child friendly and secure. I have a back yard the entire unit is fully fenced, perfect for Arts & Crafts, mini sports days and water fun. Having all of these facilities available to me, means that there are many fun and exciting activities for the kids to enjoy all year long, regardless of Auckland’s unpredictable weather.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and you are welcome to visit my home and family in the near future.

I would like to thank Kuddles and your team, specially his educator for the great caring and loving nature given to him in our absence. He was well adjusted with the educator and no doubt she has a natural bond with kids and also is very caring, loving, mindful, cheerful, trustworthy & honest educator.

"Open communication between the coordinator,educators, and families is a feature of the service.  Educators support children's development of social skills and support children to play co-operatively. the small group size  ensures that educators are able to provide individual attention to children." - Education Review Office, 2012.
