Ages of children: Licensed to care for children from infancy
Group / Centre Size: 51 or more children. This is a mega licensed early childhood centre. Check that small family-like group sizes are maintained, and not large classes. It is important for children's learning and emotional wellbeing to consistently have the same teachers everyday. No child should feel or be 'lost in the crowd'.
Qualified teaching staff: 80% to 100% of teaching staff are qualified teachers (according to funding claimed from the Ministry of Education, last updated beginning of 2020).
Shows Children that Men Can Teach and Care for Young Children Too: In 2019 the teaching team included one or more men. (Note that it is best to have gender balance with children being taught and cared for by both men and women)
Is this service HIGHLY Parent Rated?: THIS SERVICE CANNOT YET BE CLASSIFIED AS A HIGHLY RATED SERVICE. (To be so it needs to have a number of recent positive reviews - at least 5 positive if a small centre, or 10 if a mega-centre or a home-based service)
COMPLIANCE warning: It has a clean record. It's licence was not downgraded by the Ministry of Education in 2019 or 2020 as far as we know (if you want to check on its history before 2019 go to more info below)
Absolutely love this centre! the staff are amazing! so supportive to parents and children, you can really see that they have a passion for teaching young children. I feel happy giving my babies over to them as they make my children feel safe and loved. very nurturing. Also they are wonderful at following my child's interests and expanding on them. The environment is awesome with loads of room to run around outside and the teachers guide the children to their next milestones or accomplishments in education beautifully. Excellent centre.
