My girl loves going to Te Puna Oraka. We are both welcomed as soon as we enter the front door. The children are always happy and encouraged to explore. My girls main teacher keeps me so well informed of how my girls day has gone and things she's learnt. I also love the online storypark where both myself and my girls teacher can share stories with each other.
So happy to have found this great centre
