Boutique Education & Care

[email protected] is a local childcare service based in the Tasman region providing boutique early childhood care & education through our team of nurturing Educators who are infused with a love of learning; providing safe, heart-led, loving, respectful and stimulating environments for all children to blossom. We believe Home is where the Heart is and that the child is at the Heart of the matter.

Need Childcare?

Our passionate team of heart-led Educators are carefully chosen and whom we believe will provide the level of nurturing care we expect! All of our Educators are safety checked and are genuinely passionate about providing quality early childhood care and education.

Our Home Educators/Kaipoipoi work from their own homes with a maximum of four children, creating a positive, nurturing environment and provide a rich programme to support each child/tamaiti to achieve their full potential.

Our Nanny Educators/Kaipoipoi attend to your childs/tamaiti needs, supporting their learning and development in the comfort of the childs/tamaiti own home. Nanny Educators/Kaipoipoi can also work alongside the families/whanau in a support role.

Our FREE Playschools

Children learn best through play and that is why we provide two [email protected] Playschools EVERY WEEK during term time.

Playschools provide lots of socialisation opportunities for children and adults and our Playschools are open to anyone in the community so you are welcome to join us.

We are licensed by the Ministry of Education and passionate about our active programme of activities full or rich learning experiences. Time and time again research shows that group size and child to adult ratios are key factors in quality outcomes for children. Providing tamariki with the opportunity to unfold and learn at their own pace and develop to their fullest potential.

At [email protected] Childcare & Education we are passionate about supporting children to connect with nature and Papatuanuku.

At our weekly NatureEXPLORERS the environments offer a variety of possibilities for exploring, planning, reasoning & learning as the children are able to study, discover, investigate and search. Developing a sense of belonging in their community and an attachment with nature.

At [email protected] Childcare & Education the children’s relationship to Papatūānuku is based on whakapapa, respect and aroha.

We have lived overseas and in other cities in New Zealand and I can easily say that [email protected] has been the best childcare provider we have used. All the staff are so enthusiastic and keen and most importantly child-focused. In fact, we have referred many of our work colleagues and friends on to [email protected] as we have been so impressed by every aspect of their organisation. They pay particular attention to a child’s individuality and are delighted with their developments and achievements. We like [email protected]’s approach where time and care are invested in each child ensuring they thrive in their home environment.

My son will miss his outings to play-school very much when he begins school later this year!
