Dream Education Programme


For your Tamariki

As part of the Dream Education Programme your tamariki individual learning and development will be recognised and nurtured by both you and your Visiting Teacher. Together you and your Visiting Teacher will encourage the child/ren you care for to learn through play to reach their full potential.

For you as a Nanny

  • Personal support from a qualified Visiting Teacher
  • Access to playgroups, outings, nature play and more
  • Regular social events
  • Professional development opportunities.

We use Educa, an Online Portfolio

Dream Education Programme whānau can keep track of their children’s learning via Educa, a secure app that can be downloaded onto any iPhone or Android device.

The app holds a portfolio of your tamariki’s monthly learning stories and in-depth reports that are shared by you and your Visiting Teacher.

Everything that is added to Educa, including photos, videos and stories, can be downloaded and printed by your family. They can choose to connect other whānau members to their Educa account too so that nobody misses out on important milestones reached, or the fun activities and learning opportunities their children experience!

Education Review Office (ERO)

The Dream Education Programme is licensed by the New Zealand Ministry of Education. We pride ourselves in our commitment to providing a quality educational programme to the child/ren in your care. Feel free to have a look at our recent ERO reports here.

Te Whāriki

Funded by the Ministry of Education, the programme weaves together the principles and strands of Te Whāriki to create a holistic, tamariki-centred local curriculum to suit your little ones. A monthly visit from one of our qualified and registered Visiting Teachers, and regular activities are just a couple of ways we make this happen.

The programme is designed to keep learning fun and can be adapted to your whānau’s needs as we believe your home and local community are an integral part of your little one’s development.
