We are run by a management team of teachers, a trust board and also have a parent/teacher group who help to organise family events.
Our staff ratios are 1 teacher to 7 children. We have fully qualified and registered staff. We are licensed for 30 children and offer school holiday programmes.
We follow the children’s interests and plan our curriculum around those interests. We are inspired by Reggio Emilia and combine some of their core values with Te Whaariki (The New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum).
We focus on Christian values, beliefs and the love of God our Creator, through Bible stories, songs and discussion in everyday interactions with our children and their families.
Our licensed hours are Monday to Friday 8.00am to 4.00pm during the school terms and also provide a school holiday programme for our enrolled children whose families need this service. We close at Christmas for 4 weeks and start back 2 weeks before the school term for the holiday programme. We offer both Work and Income subsidies and the 20 Hours ECE subsidy.
We welcome new families to visit our centre and see what we have to offer.
