Small centre, new head teacher

My son has been here for 2 years. It's a small centre so he knows everyone and we know all the kids and teachers (and most of the parents), which we like and builds our trust. A large whanau for him. We've always been happy with the centre but have seen a big improvement since the new head teacher started in late 2016. At our recent AGM she set out the way they are approaching learning and encouraging the kids to see themselves as learners, which fits with what I have read about the importance of a growth mindset. We also like the big outdoor area.
Mel B likes: Focus on learning, focus on social skills, big outdoor area with trees and sandpit, newly renovated inside, Homecooked meals provided, positive friendly teachers, new head teacher, parent cooperative so confident the kids come first, Story park
Mel B dislikes: Hard to park nearby all day, Generally doesn't take under 2s
