Homebased childcare is where you will provide childcare for children in your own home. Parents will generally drop their children off to your home for the day and you are responsible for providing fun and stimulating activities, events out of the home and looking after their health and well-being.
Parents often chose this option as it is a much lower ratio than a childcare centre.
You will be visited by our Visiting Teacher at least once per month to guide and support your career as a nanny or educator. We also run a weekly playgroup and monthly events for you and your children to attend. Your Visiting Teacher is available to call at any time during the work week.
