Running a Home-based Service: A Director's View and Practices that Work Well

[blockquote] As a director I know each of our educators and do not want to grow the service to a level where I do not know them all."  [/blockquote]

We profile here a private Home-based Early Childhood Education Service in Christchurch, Kiddz, and talk with co-owner Veronica Kidd about the ins and outs of running a home-based service, practices that work well,  their training programme and philosophy, and some of the bigger picture issues/problems in relation to government regulations and standards.
