Ministry of Education Licence ID number: 83069
Qualified teaching staff: 80% to 100% of the teachers counted within the minimum ratio for the number of children hold a practising certificate recognised for teaching in NZ
In August 2014 the parents of a 2 year old child told the Otago Daily Times newspaper that their son was able to leave the centre unnoticed, crossing a busy road and was found by a member of the public. It was reported that the centre was well-staffed with above the minimum required number of adults and that a faulty latch on the gate may have been to blame. But note that close supervision for children under 5 years of age is important for safety at all times. The adults/teachers should know where each child is and what each child is doing, and be involved in children's play
My ECE Rating of this Service:
Three-Star Rating (3 out of 5 stars)
- Qualified Staff: This service has a higher proportion of qualified or trained teachers/ educators.
(Centres with 80% or more qualified teachers within the legal minimum staffing requirement. Home-based services and Playcentres on a higher funding rate for educator training).
- Service Size: The service operates on a small and personal scale for children and families. It is what we call a 'boutique' early childhood service.
- Education Review Office report: The latest ERO report for this service was a positive one (or ERO has yet to make a report available on this service).
