– Supporting parents in their parental task and in their aspirations for their children
– Recognising that each child is unique and seeking to help each one reach their potential growth physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually
Although we are an open plan centre which gives rise to a greater scope in peer learning, we also have times in smaller groups which are age and stage appropriate.
The centre has two ‘Mat-Times’ per day. A Christian focused mat time is held once a week. We also concentrate on literacy and topics of interest. We run mat times in age and stage groups, as mentioned above. The “Lambs” 2-3 years, the “Lions” 3-4 years and the “Butterflies” group 4.5-5 years. Each age group has their own teachers. This allows focused teaching and activities.
The second mat time is brief, but is a great opportunity for the children to show things they have made during the day.
This programme is for 4.5 – 5 year olds and Focuses on: alphabet, basic colours, counting to ten, recognising their name written down and etc. The main purpose of this is to improve children’s self-managing skills so they can settle in their new primary schools quick and with ease.
The childcare is open throughout the year, closing only for statutory holidays and 3½ weeks at Christmas. We operate from 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday and provide free meals.
Our centre participates in 20 free Hours ECE for 3 and 4 year olds.
Children will be provided with morning tea, three course lunch, and afternoon tea. All of this is included in the daily fee.
When enrolling your kids you are asked to provide details about your children’s food allergy.
Once the details are provided and children are enrolled, we update our children’s food allergy table (which is confidential) and all teachers are advised. Meals are prepared accordingly and given to children under supervision.
WINZ subsidies are available for qualifying families.
