by Home2 Grow Home Based Childcare Provider

A time comes when many of you want to get rid of hectic job hours and desperately looking for a passive source of income from the comfort of home. After becoming a mother, many women want to work from home that can allow them to take of their kids and help them to earn well. Fortunately, there is a job called home-based educator that helps to earn well without living the comfortable environment of a home.

Who is a Home Based Educator?

There is no age limit to become a home-based educator. A mother or a granny can be a home-based educator who takes care of pre-school aged children. It is a job to provide a homely environment for growing kids and teach them basic knowledge in a playful manner. The educator is associated with a licensed organization responsible to refine skills and look after the development of children in the homely environment.

How to become a home based childcare educator in NZ?

The journey to becoming a home based educator is started after registration with IRD which provides an IRD number, a unique tax number by the Inland Revenue Department of New Zealand. Being a home based educator, you are responsible to pay your own tax. If you have a proper receipt of your expenses, you can redeem your tax amount. The tax return will be filed in March every year. Home based educators are self-employed but are sub-contracted with a licensed children educator organization.

How do they earn?

In New Zealand, it is common that both mother and father are working. In this case, children below pre-school age need care and homely feeling environment. So the culture of the home-based educator is very popular in the country. These educators charge an hourly basis. They are flexible to work according to their comfort. The hourly payment may range from $5 to $10. It depends on educators how much they charge. Those who know the art of negotiation can earn well. Working hours can be day or night, depending on educators. They can earn more if they stretch their working hours.

Work Responsibilities

Enrolled educators can take care of up to 4 children at a time of under age 6. Out of them two can be of under age two. The organization that leads these educators can give permission to take care of their own children which is unpaid. Educators have to take care of the overall development of children. They have to feed children proper nutrition and teach in a fun-loving environment. They need to motivate children to play using natural materials like seashells instead of plastic and other material toys.

Educators have to maintain a diary or keep a record of the child's learning. Both educator and parent sign should be in the sheet that shows details of care provided by the educator. Educators need to stay connected with the program coordinator at least once a month to discuss the work. They may need to attend workshops organized by the childcare organizer.
