What you need to know about being an Educator with A Kidz World:
What is A Kidz World Home Based Childcare & Education Service?
A Kidz World is a privately owned Early Childhood Home Based Childcare & Education Service, approved and licensed with the Ministry of Education. It has been operating since February 2002.
What is Home Based Childcare?
Home Based Childcare enables pre-school children to be cared for in the homes of carefully selected Educators who educate and care for your children. Home based childcare is an alternative to centre based care, offering small group sizes with a maximum of 4 children under the age of 6 years and never more than 2 children under the age of two.
Small group sizes enable children to build responsive and reciprocal relationships, which is particularly beneficial for children under two.
Who are the Educators?
A Kidz World Educators range from trained early childhood Educators, qualified teachers, and people willing to have on the job training while studying towards the Open Polytechnic Certificate in Early Childhood Practice (Level 4).
This training is a correspondence course through The Open Polytechnic of New Zealand plus a First Aid Certificate. This training is partly paid for by A Kidz World and may be commenced once children have been placed in your care.
Only the First Aid Certificate is compulsory, however we encourage you to study towards the Open Polytechnic Certificate in Early Childhood Practice (Level 4).
A Kidz World Contracted Educator receives a fortnightly pay depending on amount of childcare hours worked.
As an Educator/Nanny with A Kidz World you are classed as a Private Independent contractor and are able to charge your own fees and are responsible for all financial arrangements with the parents, with contractual support from A Kidz World.
