PORSE - A focus on Natural Childcare
Science shows that during the early years of life, nurturing and loving relationships trigger positive connections in children’s brains. These connections lay the foundation for social skills, resilience and the ability to regulate emotions. However, the brain needs familiar relationships and environments to be able to wire and fire in a positive way.
If a child experiences a calm and consistent environment with a familiar person dedicated to their needs, they can then learn to trust the world that they live in.
The natural environment to foster this in is the home. The natural person for children to seek this connection from is their mum or dad. However, the world is changing, and many mums and dads need to work.
At PORSE we focus on Natural Childcare and have done so for over 20 years. We love nothing more than seeing children flourish and knowing that we are helping them make positive connections for later life. Our Natural Childcare solution is based on providing children with authentic relationships, environments and experiences — parenting as nature intended.
Natural Childcare comes from one-on-one, responsive relationships that provide children with consistency and a go-to person. These relationships are built on providing emotional availability, attentiveness and time to each individual child. Science shows that for children’s brains to make the positive connections that build social skills and resilience, these relationships are essential.
PORSE In-Home Childcare replicates the comfort and security of home, as well as the routines and values that are built there. These environments allow children space and time to be themselves, rather than forcing them to fit in. Providing these environments is especially important during the first 1,000 days of a child’s life, as young brains need calm and familiar surroundings to learn and grow.
Natural Childcare provides real-world interaction and public outings, in a safe and supportive environment, with a person they trust. These experiences are learning opportunities, catered to each child’s interests, giving them the chance to try new things. It is through experiences like these that children grow their social skills and relationships with others.
Everything we do is to help give children the best start possible. If you’re in need of a Natural Childcare solution call us today on 0800 023 456 or visit porse.co.nz
