Because research consistently shows us that children who have secure and loving relationships with consistent caregivers do best.
While each child is different, recent studies show that children in childcare experience heightened stress levels in large groups of children and when with unfamiliar or changing caregivers.
A PORSE home offers your child an alternative to the stress, noise, age-separation, schedules, and staff turnover of a centre.
In a PORSE home your child receives:
A consistent and committed educator who supports your child as a whole person
A safe home environment that provides familiarity and stability while allowing for natural play and exploration
Play materials and resources of the highest quality without over-stimulation
A limit of FOUR children in the home which means high levels of personal attention, knowledge and interaction
Continuous care regardless of age
Personal selection of a caregiver who fits both your child’s needs and your values
Social interaction and cooperative play experiences both within the home and through regular outings, activities and play experiences, such as PORSE PlaySchools, Story Times and Music Groups.
Unrivalled adaptability and responsiveness
Attunement to your child’s unique feeding and sleeping needs, including flexible and ongoing support of the breastfeeding relationship
A home that you, as a parent, are also a part of a familiar and ongoing relationship with your educator which enables authentic communication and a shared daily interchange between family and caregiver
The benefits of home management (if you choose the Nanny/Family Share option)
Respect, security and peace of mind.
Educators receive workplace training, support and professional development to upskill and achieve positive outcomes for children and families.
Families do not pay placement fees - a charge levied by traditional nanny agencies. The fee can often be the barrier that stops families from keeping their children at home.
In addition to accessing the PORSE Programme, families may choose to take advantage of the PORSE Payroll administration service.
