Village Kids

Home Based Childcare

Do you know the importance of the first 1000 days of a child’s life? We believe that home is best for any child. If not yours, then one of our lovely Home Based Educarers.

If you require child care services but prefer the familiarity and comfort of a home environment, we have affordable and flexible home based solutions for you.

Home Based Childcare offers your child the opportunity to form a relationship with an educarer in a relaxed home setting. Your child’s own familiar routines are carried out in the educarer’s home.

By choosing Village Kids Home Based Childcare you are offering your child an opportunity to form a safe and secure relationship, in partnership with someone who adores them, in a relaxed home setting. Research indicates it is that quality of attachment that helps children’s brains develop to their full potential in the first 3 years of their life.

Educarer’s Testimonial

Relationships

This epitomises everything I know and love about my job. The relationships with Visiting teachers, the office team are so pleasant to talk on the phone, the responsiveness of everyone. If I need anything, have a question or need, it’s no problem for anyone to jump about until it’s sorted. I think it’s important that educarers feel this way, it’s the first thing I tell my families: ‘any queries, just call the office they will bend over backwards to help you as quick as possible’

Comradery

I love nothing more than seeing educarers online promoting themselves. I hit that like button and put forward my praise for that person (even those I don’t know particularly well) and I see others doing it for Village kids too. There are no other educarers I see on other networks getting support from fellow workers. I see it as; we all like each other. I think it looks fantastic that we support each other and sell us as more of a community than company.

Favourite Quote:

“Village Kids a beautiful local provider, owned by local people, small enough to care, big enough to make it happen’. We aren’t in the business of big flashy websites, we are in the business of people. Natasha – Village Kids Home Based Childcare Educarer

 

Village Kids

“Children benefit from warm and caring relationships with their educarers. They experience a range of learning activities outside the home and opportunities to interact with other children. Literacy is a feature of the programme and is regularly incorporated into different areas of play. Children regulary take books home to share with their families.”
