Stems FROM HOME provides a range of childcare options, tailored to each individual family’s needs. Based locally in Howick and East Auckland we are on hand to support your family with your childcare needs at all times. 2016 brings some changes with Stems as we open a branch in Christchurch.
We charge no placement fees, meaning that you only pay for the service you receive from your family’s chosen Home based Educator/Nanny once childcare begins.
Home Based Educators
Home based Educators provide childcare in their own secure, healthy home environment, with a maximum of four children under the age of 6 years old at any one time. These secure home environments are our ‘Stems Homes’, which have all been thoroughly checked and comply with the Ministry of Education Licensing requirements.
Home based Educators work as contractors, therefore are self-employed, working alongside the Stems FROM HOME Learning Team. Prices vary from Educator to Educator, Nanny to Nanny and start from $6.00 per child, per hour.
Home based Educators run individual development programmes for each of the children in their care which are underpinned by Te Whaariki, the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, and are overseen by the Stems Learning Team within Howick and East Auckland.
Nanny Educators provide childcare in the family’s own secure home environment, with a maximum of four children under the age of 6 years old at any one time. This allows families extra flexibility around the care of their school aged children and also the flexibility to share their Nanny with another local East Auckland family to help reduce childcare costs.
Nannies are employed by the family/lies they work for meaning that family/lies are responsible for meeting their obligations as an employer surrounding tax, holiday pay, sick pay, Kiwisaver, ACC. The Stems FROM HOME office team support families with this payroll process if required. Prices vary from Nanny to Nanny and start from $15 per hour.
Nanny Educators run individual development programmes for each of the children in their care which are underpinned by Te Whaariki, the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, and are overseen by the Stems Learning Team within Howick and East Auckland.
