Weekly playgroups are provided by Sprouts home based childcare and are run by an ECE Teacher

At these sessions children enjoy large group play. Individual programmes are designed specific to individual children's interests and talents.

Interest Packs

To meet the learning and developmental needs of children we provide our Educators with monthly packs. Our Educators choose from a wide range of resources for their pack that ensures the current interests and needs of the children in their care are being met.

Regular excursions and outings

Sprouts recognises the benefits of stimulating children within the home, as well as utilising resources within the wider community.

This provides a wealth of varying experiences and opportunities for children to socialise. This in turn builds confidence in forming relationships with others. 

Sprouts Educators provide a range of learning experiences and play equipment in homes but also have the flexibility to utilise opportunities in the local community to further extend the children in their care.

I work with the administration team at  Sprouts. Currently I am looking after the paperwork and payments for the Hawke's Bay Educators and families. I also deal with the accounts administration for Sprouts. It is a very varied role with lots of paper but with the added bonus of dealing with parents and Educators.
