Here at Busy Bees Brooklyn, our children are the heart of our centre and community. Aroha and whanaungatanga drive us and forms the foundation of our philosophy. We believe that every child deserves to know they are valued and respected and stive to ensure all tamariki feel safe and nurtured in a fun learning community. Kaiako foster, enrich, and support the relationships of the people, places and things that make each child unique.

Our centre promotes an inclusive environment where tamariki develop knowledge and understanding of New Zealand’s dual heritage, culture, language and identity as well as recognising the diverse cultures of our community. We communicate, engage and work in partnership with parents and whānau regarding all aspects of children’s learning, interests, goals and holistic development

Thinking about Home Based childcare with Home Grown Kids?

All of our Educators are carefully selected and screened including Police Vetting, identity checks, an interview that assess their attitudes and values toward children and an overall assessment of risk.

Enquire today and we’ll be in touch with you soon to provide the perfect option for your family.

Choosing the Best Educator for Your Child

We stand strong alongside our Educators. We care about them and we’re committed to the work they do, supporting and communicating with them every step of the way. We understand that engaged, fulfilled Educators make for happy families and even happier tamariki who thrive in these small group settings.

Small Group Setting

Our Home Based childcare groups are capped at a maximum of four children under the age of six, including Educators’ own children. This means we can offer each child the individual attention they need to flourish.

The best fit for your whānau values

Our Educators offer a range of different programmes based around their beliefs, values, culture, background and philosophies. Over 90% of our Educators hold a recognised ECE qualification. Some of our Educators are mothers and grandmothers with fantastic life skills, experience and knowledge. We’ll listen to your needs and then offer, where possible, a range of Educators. You will get to choose an Educator that you and your whānau connect with and trust.

Exceeding educational standards

An education programme that reflects New Zealand ECE curriculum - Te Whāriki. We are a Ministry of Education approved and licensed Early Childhood Education provider. Regularly reviewed by the

Education Review Office to ensure all our Home Based environments not only meet, but exceed the Ministry of Education’s Licensing Criteria for Home-based Services (2008).

Subsidies available

We’re an approved Work and Income provider and can support you to access a childcare subsidy if you are eligible.

20 hours ECE scheme

The Government subsidises all children aged 3-5 years (or 6 if not enrolled in school) who attend an ECE facility, making access more affordable for all.

Leaders in development practices for each child

All our Educators are supported and guided by our Visiting Teachers who are Qualified certificated ECE teachers with many years’ experience and expertise in early childhood education. Our Visiting Teachers regularly attend professional development to keep up-to-date with current research and theory for best practice for Education and care for under fives.

Our philosophy, vision and mission

  • Our Vision– The why – The reason we exist:

To provide a family friendly wrap around support service that enables all tamariki/whanau to learn, grow and thrive in a home-based setting. Investing in cultivating kindness, strong and professional relationships, in all our people to continue growing as lifelong learners

  • Mission Statement – The How -How are we going to achieve the Vision?

We will achieve our Vision through ensuring that every team member is emotionally invested in the well-being of our people including tamariki, whanau, Educators, communities and our Edubase family. We value successes and that these are not ours alone, the greatest success comes from the strengths of many. Our passion, knowledge and commitment will be the catalyst that enables everyone to learn, thrive and achieve.

  • Philosophy Statement

Edubase is a Home Based Early Childhood Education service that is committed to providing nurturing learning environments where tamariki thrive as individuals through an authentic play-based, natural learning education and care programme, in a home setting.

To enrich the learning of each tamariki we form strong community connections, developing links within the home and the learning environments of our Kaiako. Tamariki learn respect for people, places and things, shaping Aotearoa and developing an appreciation of New Zealand’s dual heritage. We continually strive to develop knowledge and an understanding of the cultural heritages of both partners to Te Tiriti o Waitangi – supporting a holistic approach to learning which is guided by our NZ Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whāriki.

Educators and Nannies offer comfortable, small group sizes, fostering respectful and reciprocal relationships, promoting tikanga Māori within their practice.

As an Organisation, we pride ourselves on cultivating strong, professional relationships, strengthening capability in all our people to continue growing as lifelong learners.

Edubase celebrates the diversity and uniqueness of each tamaiti, whanau and Kaiako and the gifts they bring. They are taonga, a treasure or gift. All things cultural are affirmed and celebrated, aiming to support children in gaining a positive awareness of their own and other cultures.

Tiaki nga tamariki – take care of the children

Brooklyn Kindergarten

Haere mai and welcome from the Teaching Team at Brooklyn Kindergarten.  When you join us, you will enter an inclusive setting that is warm, welcoming, and safe for all tamariki (children) and whanau (families).  

Our programme provides a range of opportunities for tamariki and whanau to engage, discover and learn in an environment that is positive, stimulating, supportive and fun! Forming authentic relationships within our learning community is important to us as we support your tamariki to learn through their own interests and at their own pace.   

We are committed to bicultural practice within our whanau based, mixed age group environment which acknowledges Te Tiriti o Waitangi (The treaty of Waitangi).  In our practice, we weave aspects of tikanga and te reo Maori and acknowledge Tangata Whenua. Our programme encompasses the NZ Early Childhood curriculum, Te Whariki, which reflects the unique bi-cultural nature of Aotearoa.  

We are a culturally diverse community with up to 20 different nationalities attending the kindergarten.  Our families come from a number of areas including Owhiro Bay, Island Bay, Kingston, Mornington, Newtown, Mt Cook and Aro Valley.  

Along with engaging with us about your tamariki’s learning, we invite you to become involved in our kindergarten community. We have a strong parent Committee with Sub-committees, which parents find, is a great way to meet new people.  

Research shows children learn best through a free play-based model supported by high quality, 100% tertiary trained and registered teachers. We are government funded which makes us for children and not for profit. Our team have a strong relationship with the local schools, which create positive transitions for tamariki when they embark on their next learning journey.
