Why Our Kaiako are Key at Brooklyn Kids Childcare Centre

A lot of ingredients go into creating a quality daycare centre. There’s the environment and outdoor area, the toys and nutritious food. But to the team here at Wellington’s Brooklyn Kids childcare centre, there’s nothing more valuable than our teachers. Here’s four reasons our kaiako are key to your child’s care.

Trained to enhance child development

Early childhood educators are trained in how best to support a young child’s rapidly developing brain. They are experienced in creating spaces that offer endless opportunities for learning and they understand how important it is to let children direct their own play. They know how to adapt to different children’s personalities and adjust the activities to growing children’s ever-evolving abilities. So much learning and development happens in these early years, and our daycare’s kaiako are here to best guide your child through this exciting time.

Offer nurturing environments

One of the most important elements of a childcare teacher is their ability to put children at ease and make them feel comfortable. From the early days when you’re leaving your youngster for the first time, to the preschool days when they’re preparing for school, childcare teachers create nurturing environments that let your children know they’re safe and loved.

Daycare teachers inspire creativity

At our Wellington daycare centre, the teachers are simply brimming with ideas to constantly inspire creativity and imagination. From building castles out of blocks to painting pictures, pretending leaves are firecrackers to folding and flying paper airplanes, our kaiako never cease to amaze the children with their outside-the-box ideas, which of course encourages the children to pursue their own creativity, too.

Safety first

As any parent knows, keeping children safe can feel like a full-time job. As they learn to walk, develop their balance and continually test their physical limits, children can seem pretty accident prone. That’s why it’s so important that our daycare centre’s teachers are not only trained in the educational side of early childhood, but also know how to look out for hazards, teach safety during play, and apply first aid when those inevitable bumps and grazes occur.

For happy, safe and inspired preschool children, a childcare centre relies on a team of wonderful, amazing and knowledgeable teachers.
