Connections in the Home

At Connections In The Home we offer a Home Based Childcare service with a focus on balancing trusting caring relationships and Early Childhood Education.  We support families in finding care with an Educator ... and we cater for children from birth till they start school.

Our team of qualified Early Childhood Teachers visit the homes of the Educators regularly and support them with developing individual programmes for the children in their care.  These programmes cater for the child's age, stage, interests and strengths as well as any areas that may need further support.  Safety in the homes of Educators is paramount to us and is also a focus of our visits each time we are in the home.

The New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whariki, underpins all that we do and it allows us to incorporate a holistic approach to the children, their families and their Educators in our programme.

Connecting with others (Relationships) and fun are a big focus of what we offer - allowing children to be children!.  With this in mind, we run weekly Musical Mat Times designed by our team to incorporate singing, stories, imagination and gross motor movement ... and plenty of laughter!  On a Thursday we have our Crazy Craft Group held at Bell House down at the local Historical Village in Lloyd Elsmore.  We have regular outings in our local community ... designed to be fun, meet the gross and fine motor skills of children, involve time for imaginations to wonder, and allow exploration of some of the great places our community offers to visit.

As children reach the ages of 3 to 5, we have a Transition to School thread through all of our events as well as in the Educators' homes.  Professional Development is offered to the Educators on this topic (and others too) and we have a Primary School Teacher in the team who is available to offer further support as needed on an individual basis.  'Connecting with School' sessions will also be available for small groups of 3 and 4 year olds too.

We look forward to meeting with you soon!
