When the service operated under a different Ministry of Education licence number in February 2013, teachers left a baby asleep at the centre and went home for the day. They were not aware that the baby was still in their care. Neighbours heard the baby crying and broke into the centre to rescue it. The Ministry of Education described the incident as human error and no action in regard to penalties or loss of licence was taken against the centre for breaching regulations in regard to child supervision, safety and abuse (neglect).

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).
