Opening Hours / Booking Times
Our normal opening hours are 7.30am untill 6.00pm Monday to Friday. Upon enrolment you will be asked to nominate a 'booking time', the time you will attend on a daily basis. We trust these hours will suit you and you will be able to support the staff by adhering to your booking time.
We provide nutritious hot lunch meals for your children to give them lots of energy, as well as providing breakfast, morning tea, afternoon tea, and a late snack. All meals are prepared on site. Please see the menu displayed by our front door.
Our curriculum is based on Te Whaariki, the early childhood curriculum, but we also add our own personalities and the interests of your children to have a fun, challenging programme. We believe in routines for children, so we will attempt to keep to these at all times.
Personal Portfolio Books
All children in our care will have personal portfolio books to show how they are developing and learning through these important childhood years. These books will include photos of your child at Let's Grow, and will have examples of their artwork. Learning stories and observations will also be collected to show how they have grown in these informative years. These books will be available for you and your family at all times, and will help the staff to plan appropriately for your child.
Family Focus / Functions
We believe that siblings attending the centre should have the opportunity to spend time together. We will do this whenever possible.
You can expet a fun-filled event every term that will involve the whole family. Some of our events so far have included 'The Annual Let's Grow Auction', our yearly Christmas party. If you have an idea, chat to the staff. These are great times to get to know your childs friends and the staff better.
We will be taking the children for a walk every fortnight when the weather allows! We also plan a trip for the older children at least once per term, for example, our recent trips to Raglan town, the fire station and Hamilton Zoo, as well as regular trips to the beach, the reserve and to local schools.
Our small and friendly new centre is family-focused and includes special areas to meet the needs of toddlers and young children. An array of quality resources and well thought out spaces will ensure your child has the time, space and freedom to enjoy hands-on learning opportunities everyday.
Children can be enrolled from zero to five years of age and our service has been developed to change with the growing needs of your child. Excellent ratios are maintained for the different age groups and ensure your child receives the individual care and attention they need.
Toddlers and young children will be supported to practice their developing self-help skills and growing independence. They will be given opportunities to become confident and purposeful explorers as they interact with the environment.
