Homebased Education


'Little Robins' is our free home-based education programme, which is fully funded and licensed through the Ministry of Education. By joining Little Robins, families with children aged under 5 will be eligible to receive up to 20 hours of government subsidies (ECE) per week, for each child. You will be supported by the Red Robin team & will enjoy a range of benefits. Your nanny/au pair will be supported by their own fully qualified ECE teacher in facilitating the Little Robins home-based education programme*. Families who already have a nanny or au pair in place are also welcome to join the Little Robins programme. With Red Robin, your child has the ability to develop & grow in a home environment that is safe, secure & chosen by you.
