Street or Road: 108 Lunn Avenue, Mt Wellington
Phone: contact number is not available for new enrolments
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)
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)
The teachers and staff have been great over the past year and my toddler loves spending time at Jnr Junction with her friends, they always do fun things together

What a wonderful centre. We have been to 3 prior to finding the right fit. They have a warm environment and such friendly staff.
The smell of fresh baking was evident and the place is clean!!!! They helped us with sleep training and we couldnt be happier. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a decent honest place to have your child. Plus they dont rip us off with fees. My wife and I are just full off praise
