Ages of children: Licensed to care for children from infancy
Group / Centre Size: 51 or more children. This is a mega licensed early childhood centre. Check that small family-like group sizes are maintained, and not large classes. It is important for children's learning and emotional wellbeing to consistently have the same teachers everyday. No child should feel or be 'lost in the crowd'.
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)
Entrant in the Hall of Excellence: Not yet

Bright Beginnings Montessori is an excellent preshool and I would highly recommend them.
I have had two children attend the preschool, the youngest is still there and has attended since he was 9 months.
The staff are kind, caring and treat the children like their own, particularly when they are in the nursery.
The education is part Montessori and part free play allowing the kids to be kids but also providing a very good start for their school education with structure work time.
Vicky likes: Clean buildings, Large play area, good ratio of kids to staff, Caring staff, good collaberation with parents
