Home-based Childcare

Why Home Based Childcare?

At ASPIRE Learning we recognise every child’s potential and strive to unleash them through interest-based and play-based learning. We believe that every child is capable of success academically and our team of highly skilled teachers are here to help develop, lead, and encourage each child to reach their full potential.

Our name ASPIRE originates from the Kahikatea tree, which is one of the tallest growing trees in New Zealand. The Kahikatea tree symbolises aspiration because they grow from a tiny seed to giant tree reaching high enough to touch the sky.

Your Aspirations are our Aspirations

We understand that every parent has aspirations for their child and we want you to know that your aspirations are our aspirations. We are committed to helping you realise those growth milestones, better yet, we’ll even document their growth in their personalised learning journals. This is yours to keep after your child graduates from our service as a memento of their time with us.

Our team is dedicated to helping you achieve the aspirations you have for your child.

An Educator can have up to 4 children maximum at any one time and no more than 2 babies (under 2 years old).

ASPIRE Learning is the umbrella service for all of our Educators. It’s our job to:

  • Do a thorough background check before Educators begin working
  • Ensure the property is safe and secure for Tamariki, and
  • Work with Educators to create fun and engaging learning adventures

We pride ourselves on being able to provide FREE care in most situations. We do this by providing some of the highest childcare subsidies in the industry to our educators.

However, educators choose their hourly rate as part of the service they offer so if there are fees, you can expect to pay between $2 - $5 per hour.

Absolutely! the WINZ childcare subsidy available for children in home-based care and we’re a registered provider. The childcare subsidy can be put towards up to 50 hours of care per week (subject to eligibility).

Recent Reviews

I’d recommend ASPIRE Learning because my children love it and I enjoy it too! They get more one on one time which is important to me and my children all get to be together.

Transitions into the service are carefully considered by service leaders to ensure children’s languages and cultures are nurtured and celebrated. Retention of home languages is recognised as important for children’s wellbeing. Children benefit from the small group sizes which enable individual care.

ASPIRE Learning was so amazing with our little girl. Her Educator really took the time to tailor things to her interests and she loved the events ASPIRE put on too. I would totally recommend them!
