We provide a healthy meal and snacks for children over 12 months of age while they are in our care. The children will have a cooked lunch most days and you will find the weekly menu displayed on the childcare's notice board. Children under 12 months will need to provide their own meals. Please inform staff of any food allergies your child may have.

Portfolios are an important piece of documentation providing you with a visual story of your child’s time here at the centre. They are a holistic narrative of your child’s learning journey and a shared anecdote between us, your child and your family /whanau.
Portfolios are something special our teachers enjoy creating together for your child. Our teachers take a lot of pride in capturing the uniqueness of each child within the centre environment. Through the pages you will see photos and photo stories, written observations, collections of art and different accounts of your child’s participation, growth and development in centre life.
We have a high focus to detail when working on the children’s portfolios and we are proud of the unique way in which the portfolios are presented. Our teachers use photoshop artistry and their individual creativeness to present an impressive document for your child to cherish in years to come.
