Meet Our Team

Bright Futures Educarers are supported by a team of registered and qualified Early Childhood Teachers, our Bright Futures Manager and the wider team of the Napier Family Centre.

What is an Educarer?
An Educarer is an early childhood professional, who cares for pre-school aged children in their own home and provides them with early childhood education. Educarers are specially trained to provide quality care in a safe and nurturing environment.

Educarers are supported by our Visiting Teachers who regularly visit Educarer homes where they will discuss children’s learning and development and look for ways to enhance their daily programme. Our Visiting Teachers support your choice of Educarer by leading the selection process.
