Fairy Godmothers has built a solid reputation for quality home-based care for the families of Rodney and the North Shore. Fairy Godmothers is one of the Wee Wisdom Group’s homebased services. Being part of a chartered network means that like other licensed and chartered ECE services, home-based care networks receive government funding and operate within education and other relevant legal parameters.
Our coordinators are all qualified and passionate about ECE and support our educators with Professional Development and ensure that all the educators are compliant with ECE regulations.
Our educators and coordinators become your extended family. They will care for your child as if they were their own. Fairy Godmothers is about building strong relationships between educators, coordinators and families to support children.
We put the LOVE into learning
We know that choosing an educator or someone else to look after your child is one of the hardest decisions in life you will have to make. We therefore try to make this process as easy as possible to satisfy you with the knowledge that your child is in the best hands.
Fairy Godmothers will discuss with you your requirements for your child’s care and the timetable that suits you. This is done through an interview process and then our coordinators will match you with one of our Educators who most suits your own family’s lifestyle and beliefs. The atmosphere in our educator’s home is one that is calm and safe, due to the low ratio of children and is more like the home environment than early childhood centres, which is why it is particularly suited and a firm favourite with families with infants.
The children that are cared for by our Fairy Godmothers develop self-confidence through being guided to become more independent. We offer the children plenty of opportunities to explore their creative side with art and craft activities and music plays an important role. Through offering playgroups and group excursions the children socialise with children of all age groups and learn to develop good relationships with other children in a family like setting. The low ratios also mean that children are able to get out into the community more which instils in them more of a sense of belonging.
We put the Love into Learning because all our Educators have a genuine desire to work and educate young children.
Each of our educators have to undergo strict assessments of their home environment to ensure that it is compliant with all MOE regulations and offers all children a safe and welcoming place to be when in their care. We find that children in home-based care are offered more opportunities to explore the natural environment because of the low ratios with regular excursions to parks, forests and the beach. These trips are normally teamed up with other educators to support each other and to provide the children more opportunities to socialise with other children.
