Owner and Visiting Teacher
My passion lies in creating an environment that values the importance of family, enhancing parent partnerships, and collaborating with children, families and educators to achieve success for all.
Lizzie Van de Schootbrugge
I am passionate about working with children and think that home-based care is a really vital part of early childhood care and education - due to its low ratios, flexibility and affordability.
I enjoy working in partnership with Educators and whanau to support an environment that is safe and fun and based on respect and relationships.
We are passionate about coordinating quality home based early childhood education and care for your child either in your own home with a nanny or in the home of an approved Educator.
We offer subsidies for all families to make home based care an affordable option.
We believe it takes a village to raise a child therefore other family members or family friends can apply to become an educator with us.
We love getting out and about in the community with regular excursions and playgroups.
Regular visits from our qualified coordinators support both children and Educators in reaching their full potential.
