Quality Child Educare

Our children have attended 4 different childcare centres in Wellington, and of the 4, I can really only say 2 of them provided quality child-educare services.This centre is one of those quality child-educare services.
The teachers are amazing and portray great values with a natural and warm-hearted approach which contributes to the safe and engaging environment provided for the children. My 2yr old has displayed a keen interest in books (doesn't know how to read yet though, but knows images in the book), loves to sing and dance, can count to 10 and knows her whole ABC. She can also hold a decent conversation for her age with a good level of understanding. Alot of her learnings has been strongly influenced at this centre which is definitely noticeable especially when comparing between centres across the level of learnings displayed by my children over the years. This tells me that my child is happy and engaged.
The premises unfortunately are not the greatest in comparison to other centres, however, given that it is near the CBD, extra space/land is a luxury. The centre is still functional and works for the way they operate.
Overall, given the quality of care and love the children receive, this centre is amongst the more affordable range of childcare centres currently being provided to date in Wellington and is definitely Value for Money, especially given its location.
I would HIGHLY recommend this centre for anyone looking for an affordable yet quality centre near the CBD
Tash likes: The teachers, The affordable childcare costs, The values
Tash dislikes: The premises / centre layout, The hours, Wished it was on the north side of the CBD
