Your Child's Programme

Make a Difference to your Child's Future

PORSE takes a relationship-based approach to nurturing and educating young minds, with Educators and Nannies becoming a significant person in the lives of the children they care for. Through your child’s programme, Educators and Nannies work at the pace of your child, allowing them time for their natural development and individual potential to unfold.

Twenty years of research and experience has allowed PORSE to create wholesome programmes that are a mix of love and science, nature and nurture. Your child’s individual programme will be tailored by a PORSE Educator or Nanny to reflect the values and expectations of your family while supporting your child’s unique learning style, any special needs, routines and play habits. 

PORSE Organised Activities

PORSE organises a variety of activities for children and their Educators to promote friendship and fun, role modelling, observation, reflection of practices, confidence, sharing of information, resources and knowledge. Activities include:
