Welcome to Kuddles In-Home Childcare and Education
"Every child is precious" is our slogan

Our Philosophy

Kuddles In-Home Childcare and Education provides a nurturing and caring learning home environment for all Tamariki (children), whanau (families) and Kaiako (Educators/teachers). We see ourselves as an extended family providing flexible options that respect each families individual needs and aspirations.

A secure and strong sense of belonging through our bicultural and multicultural practice, ensures each unique culture and language is embraced and celebrated throughout our programme. We believe in building close relationships between parents/whanau, educators, teachers/coordinators and the community.

Children learn best through play, which is why play is at the heart of everything we do. Through fun, individualised education plans for each child, children are empowered and challenged to become independent, creative and confident learners that are well supported through their first five years.Carefully thought out experiences and resources allow children time to explore at their own pace in the security of our loving and warm home environments.

“Every child is precious .”
