I have been sending my child here since Feb 2020, the environment is good for children who like being outdoor and there are some cool teachers who are nice and set a real Whānau type of environment. My child loves being here and has come out of their comfort zone.
There are some things that could be better but that’s for a lot of places. Maybe some more resources? The price is cheap too and they accept WINZ payments.
The kai is mean, my child has grilled fish and kumara chips or avocado Mac n cheese so at least you know your child’s going to have a healthy yummy kai.
M likes: The kai, Whānau setting, learning

Came in to have a look around this center today and have to say i wasn't impressed, Staff looked totally stressed out, babies crying, food all over the floor with babies crawling all over it and when i asked for a enrollment pack the rude teacher said they dont know where they are and we dont have an administrator or a manager.
Lisa dislikes: almost everything
