My name is Rachel. I have been an home-based educarer for 23 years now and I still love it! I have many interests which I include the children in each day. I collect things from the beach, shells, driftwood, etc., as well as different things from the nature walks that we go on. We then bring them home to see what we can make.

Our Educarers are recruited using a very strong selection process


We take the safety of your child very seriously.  Each and every one of our Educarers is thoroughly checked using our recruitment vetting system.  Part of this system requires all Educarers to have a squeaky clean police record and a full medical assessment.
Further to this, Co-ordinators (who are all fully qualified and registered early childhood teachers) complete a full assessment of every property to ensure that it meets Ministry of Education safety requirements.
