At Kids Create we provide an environment where diversity of culture, ideas and ways of working are valued. We work in collaboration with Educators and families to create conditions where children can discover who they are and what they can do and be supported to flourish, learn and grow.

We believe that we are all learners and that by sharing our passions, questions, skills and knowledge with each other we can all become the best we can be. We seek to develop culturally and socially competent people, who have integrity, pursue excellence and who can work effectively with others for the benefit of all. We aim to foster the values of manaakitanga (being supportive and caring) and kaitiakitanga (taking responsibility) through providing a wide range of opportunities to interact with people, places and things.

Kids Create is an organisation in which children are supported to:

  • be self-directed, self-motivated learners
  • be empathetic and socially competent individuals
  • have a strong sense of self
  • value diversity and difference
  • be respectful and responsible members of New Zealand’s society
  • be resilient and adaptable
  • be critical thinkers and problem solvers

Our Educators:

  • prioritise relationships and children’s learning
  • are knowledgeable and professionally minded
  • are motivated and improvement-focused
  • are effective communicators
  • have high personal integrity and standards

All our Educators are carefully selected and undergo a complete police check before starting with us. It is a requirement that they hold a current first aid certificate and many of them are currently undertaking or are soon to commence study towards formal qualifications in early childhood education.

 

Our Educators all have a passion for working with young children and for partnering with families to provide their education and care needs. Educators are independent contractors who provide education and care services under agreement with Kids Create. Programme Coordinators oversee their practice and ensure that homes comply with all Ministry of Education requirements.

Educators bring a wide range of life experience to their work and come from a range of cultural backgrounds. It is our aim to match you with an Educator who shares similar beliefs and values and who can provide care for the times and days you require.
