Important Information


Visiting the Centre beforehand is very helpful in transitioning.  Children adjust in different ways and our staff are used to settling children.  Always tell your child that you are leaving and that you will be back.  Don't linger, this makes it harder for your child.  Please feel free to phone the Centre at anytime to check that your child is settled and happy.


It is a Ministry of Education requirement that parents/caregivers/whanau sign their child in and out.  Please write the names of all persons allowed to collect your child in the enrolment form, otherwise you will be contacted before your child is allowed t​o leave our premises.


Financial Statements are available to view on request.


The Centre Director  and Centre Manager at their discretion may refuse to accept any child suffering  from a contagious or infectious disease.  When many children and adults are together, germs spread very quickly, so please consider this when deciding whether or not to bring your child.  If your child becomes unwell at the Centre, you will be notified and expected to make every effort to collect your child as soon as possible.  It is very important that we have at least two emergency contact numbers on the enrolment form.

All medication is to be handed to a teacher on arrival and you are required to fill in the medication book.  This authorise's a teacher to administer the medication for this day.  We have at least two staff members present at all times that hold a current first aid certificate.  If your child requires medical attention, you or your emergency contact person will be contacted immediately.  In the case of  a minor accident, the staff will administer First Aid and you will be informed when your child is collected.  Records of all accidents are recorded in the accident register.


We have an onsite cook/chef who prepares nutritious freshly cooked meals for all our children.  All our food is cooked and prepared fresh each day as well as all our fruit and vegetables.

Please inform us immediately if your child has any allergies.  Do this by writing it on your enrolment form.

For those children/infants who are still on formula.  Parents please provide their formula to one of our teachers with a schedule of feeding time.


Our Centre will give your child their very own bucket hat for summer play on enrolment.  This hat is best kept at our centre so it can be used for your child when they have outdoor play.  As the sun is so harsh and can cause skin cancers we will not allow your child to play outdoors without their hat.  Our staff will administer sunscreen to your child to help with non-burning.  Our outdoor play areas are also screened to provide shelter from the sun's harmful rays.

If your child is allergic to specific brands of sunscreen please advise one of our teachers and write in their enrolment form.

Please provide a spare change of clothes in your child's bag each day, as our teachers provide numerous fun activities for your child to do each day.


In winter please provide your child with a beanie, warm clothes, socks and shoes.  Please name all your child's belongings.
