I love this Centre, it has been going for 22 years, my daughter attended and now my granddaughter is going there. They have a low teacher turnover - there are still some staff that I recognise through the years and still recognise me and my whanau. they have teachers who speak the languages of the children who attend - Maori, Tongan, Samoan, Cook Island, Niuean, Hindi and English, they even have a male teacher who is great with the boys (also the girls) in the Centre. Nearly all the teachers are qualified and registered, the one who isn't is in her 2nd year of training. I love that every morning we are greeted with a happy "Morena" or "Kia Ora"
I love that my mokopuna comes home using lots of different languages and is confident performing different cultural dances and songs. We all have a great time celebrating our cultures and community events.
I love the beautiful things they have on the walls - tapa, hula skirts, different hats for church, photos and lots of stories about childrens learning. There is a really cool outdoor play area, lots of nature, vege gardens and fruit trees.
I can't believe that they offer 30 hours free for all children, yep 30 hours free - from the youngest babies until they go to school!
I love this Centre, it is the best around!
Mrs K Wong likes: the teachers, celebrating our different cultures, children hearing and learning different languages, the interesting homely environment, happy smiling greetings in the morning and people who are interested in me and my family
