Ownership: This service is not-for-profit and operated by a community trust, incorporated society or association
Street or Road: 29 Chelsea Street, Miramar
Phone: Sorry, this service has not yet registered its contact phone number for parents with My ECE
Ages of children: Licensed to care for children from infancy
Group / Centre Size: The centre operates on a small and personal scale for children and families. It is licensed for 50 or fewer children. It is what we call a 'boutique' early childhood centre.
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 was, known to have been usually or all of the time, women only. (Note that it is best to have gender balance with children being taught and cared for by both men and women. In Home-based ECE this criterion relates to visiting teachers only)
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)
Two of my children have attended this centre (formerly Miramar Community Creche and now Peninsula Early Learning) and I have been so appreciative of the wonderful environment the teachers have created. There is a strong focus on nature and my daughter has embraced all the opportunities there are to get outside! The teachers are lovely, the hours are great and my children have been really happy at this centre.
