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.

I believe in providing a welcoming and fun filled learning environment for children where they feel happy, and secure in a trusting, caring, home life setting. My home has a large, fully fenced section where many outdoor experiences can take place. I can speak three languages; English, Punjabi and Hindi and I hold a Bachelor of Arts.
I have one young daughter and love spending time with children. Together we love visiting our local parks, library and playing in our large garden area. I love new experiences and will continue to develop my Educator skills.
In India I worked as a computer science teacher in high school and I have a Masters degree in science. Since moving to New Zealand I have worked for a variety of companies including a courier and a transport company and gained my Diploma in Information Technology.
Working as an Educator allows me to work while meeting the needs of my young family. I enjoy supporting children to become independent and I can communicate in English, Punjabi and Hindi.
I love how the home-based environment allows for spending one-on-one time with the children in my care. I value building respectful relationships with both children and adults and enjoy connecting with the people in my local community.
The home-based day allows us to have excursions to playgroups, trips to the zoo and other community events in our area.
I believe children learn through play and actively exploring their environment. The children in my care have a deep sense of belonging. I am able to support them to grow, develop, and learn according to their interests, having lots of fun along the way.
