At Shed Kids we believe that home-based care and education is the next best alternative to learning at home with Mum and Dad.
These days with the many different care and education options for you to choose from it can become confusing and difficult to decide. When Sonya began planning Shed Kids she could see there was a real need for a quality, local and natural home-based service.
We know money is tight these days… and as a Ministry of Education approved service are able to offer:
- 20 hours ECE (3-5yr olds)
- WINZ subsidies (if you qualify)
- Flexible hours
- Safety checked properties
This means many of the families in our service pay very little for the high level of care & education their child receives.
As all our co-ordinators are trained early childhood teachers (ECE) they are able to identify that children learn on a deeper level when in a comfortable environment and seem to develop strong problem solving, social and learning/life skills.
Because they are in a comfortable, uncrowded environment children get the chance to develop and learn at a steady pace with all the assistance they need.
Our Shed Kids receive lots of one-on-one time with their carefully selected educator, as well as interaction with other children in different age groups.
These are two core components in the development of happy, energetic, sharing, respectful, thoughtful, problem solving and fun loving kids.
We believe that babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers should have an extensive supply of books, puzzles, games and activities.
Shed Kids are passionate advocators for all things natural and believe that our Shed Kids should have unlimited access to natural environments and resources.
Safety - in all its aspects is of utmost importance to parents, therefore all our Educators hold first aid certificates and are policed checked before we place any children with them. All homes pass a safety check to ensure they meet Ministry of Education requirements.
Shed Kids is a growing little service that provides care in the lower Northland region, of Bream Bay, including Ruakaka, One Tree Point, Waipu and more…..
