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 Parent Rated: THIS SERVICE CANNOT YET BE CLASSIFIED AS A HIGHLY RATED SERVICE. (To be so it needs to have a number of recent positive reviews - at least 5 positive if a small centre, or 10 if a mega-centre or a home-based service)
Compliance with Regulations & Minimum Standards: It has a clean record. It was not downgraded to a provisional or suspended licence by the Ministry of Education last year (if you want to check on its history before 2019 go to more info below)
Education Review Office report: The last report was in 2018 and it was most positive
My ECE Rating of this Service:

(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.

Later if the centre changes in quality or no longer provides all that you want, you can choose again because you are not committed to stay with any one early childhood service until your child starts school.
