Ages of children: Licensed to care for children from 2 years of age
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)

Highly disappointing given this service markets itself as the best. Our son broke his elbow while in their care due to a lack of supervision. Management was appalling - blamed our son, made no move to look into how it happened. Ministry of Education investigated and said the problem was bigger than our son. Don't be fooled by the name, this place is not up to standard.
Miranda dislikes: Poor management, Health and safety not a priority, Staff with no first aid training, Poor communication, Staff not monitoring play area adequately, Unsafe play area design, Prioritise reputation over duty of care
