Phone: contact number is not available for new enrolments yet
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)
Is this service 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 warning: It has a clean record. It's licence was not downgraded by the Ministry of Education in 2019 or 2020 as far as we know (if you want to check on its history before 2019 go to more info below)
I have nothing but praises for this preschool. I have two boys and naturally, as we moved around Auckland city, we also had the exposure to various Preschools and Day Cares in the areas we have lived in (Henderson, Mt Wellington, One Tree Hill etc). This by far is the best Preschool- it's such a shame that I've only just discovered this preschool for my second child. The manager, Juliette Pertab, is highly skilled and knowledge. She has a lovely team and they are all clearly passionate about what they do. They go over and beyond their job descriptions. I have seen them genuinely care of the children in their care. There was one time they even shampoo'd yogurt out of my son's hair! Just one of the many examples. Great team, great facilities and great teaching program. Highly recommended.
