You know the importance of choosing the right centre for your child.


You want it to suit your family’s needs as well. You want to ensure that children are safe and happy and that the education programme is high quality.

You need to feel comfortable leaving your child each time, confident that the day will be filled with fun, friends, learning and nurturing.

Because our children work and play with others of their own age, teachers tailor the programme and the environment to suit. For example our Preschool room is large and airy and children can work independently on projects without interruption. The Before 2 room is smaller and has a warm nurturing feel. Each room is well resourced to allow our qualified educators to devise a learning programme catering for all interests and needs. The playgrounds are much bigger than Ministry of Education requirements meaning there is lots of room to run, explore shady corners, water a garden or zoom down the slide.

If your child is over three and you book five mornings or afternoons of four hours each,  it will cost you NOTHING! 20 hours ECE free will pay totally for your children's education.
