Are you looking for pre-school childcare at your home or ours?

Why Home Grown Kids?

Home Grown Kids gives your precious little one warm, caring home-based care and you some much needed peace of mind – with a loving educator and support from visiting teachers.

Home Grown Kids get to do everything that kids should do: climbing, baking, painting and building; laughing, dancing, singing and playing.

Your child will get to form a special bond with just one caregiver who really gets to know your child’s needs.
It really is the next best thing to your kids being at home with you!

quote I just want to say I recently joined my kids into homebased childcare with Home Grown Kids - great company, my children's educator is great, taking them out on trips etc. I prefer this to sending my children to big child care centres."
