Our Core Values

At Home Time, children and families matter. We take our time with each child to know them, to believe in them, to establish their need to feel safe and secure, and to nurture and encourage their individual development.

Home Time’s standards are established. They are endorsed by the children, their families, school management and Child, Youth and Family Services (CYFS). These standards provide our children with a programme that is balanced with fun, play, nutrition and learning.

Our friendly environment and highly qualified staff encourage children to explore their interests and develop friendships and skills. Children who have learned how to think clearly and solve problems take these skills into the next phase of their education. They will have the courage and confidence to ask questions and expand their knowledge.

We accept enrolments from all schools in the Tauranga area.
