Let’s Grow Early Learning Centre is set amidst the natural beauty and majestic backdrop of rolling hills and trees located on the Whaingaroa coastline. The purpose built, architecturally designed childcare centre situated on a large section is conveniently located close to the Raglan township. Let’s Grow welcomes babies into the Tiaki (babies) room, who progress to the Tangaroa (toddlers) room until they are ready to move into the Karioi (preschool) room, catering for children up to six years of age.
Hours of operation
Monday – Friday 7.30am – 6.00pm
Our programmes are designed to reflect the age appropriateness and general abilities of children at varying ages in their developmental cycle, and accordingly, the educational content alters as the children progress through the individual age groups, culminating in the preschool years where the emphasis is focused more towards providing the children with the skills required to be school ready.
Our centre provides morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. Breakfast is provided for those children that arrive before 8.30am at the centre. All food that is provided is healthy, nutritious and prepared to the highest quality standards. Our centre has recently been awarded with the Healthy Heart Award.
