HomeAbout Us › Checklist: How to Choose a Centre?

Looking for more than just childcare?

Of course we are a little biased but to help you make the right decision we’ve put together a checklist on what you should look for.

A Warm Welcome

Just pop-in, we welcome visitors at any time. Meet our teachers and ask all those nitty-gritty questions! While you’re there, experience a mat time, enjoy the fantastic playgrounds and judge for yourself why our centres are nothing but quality.

Qualified Teachers

We not only employ qualified teachers but those who are truly passionate about extending your child’s learning. We also employ specialist managers who oversee each and every centre in providing quality education and care.

Stimulating Environment

Our large playgrounds are all about real kiwi kids – sandpits, vegetable gardens, water, swings, huts & so much more. The buildings have large covered decks, modern kitchens for baking, and an abundance of exciting learning resources. 

Friendships

Who doesn’t want to see their child making friends they are likely to have for life! The group environment encourages sharing, manners, confidence and a real understanding for each other. 

Safe

With a team of qualified teachers there is more than one set of eyes watching over your child at all times. Your child is safe in our hands. 

Learning & Resources

We never have a dull moment!  Different activities are set up on a daily basis, ranging from numeracy and literacy through to creative arts and technology - making sure your child is well prepared to start school.

Trust

We like to think we’ve more than proven ourselves in quality education and care. We’ve been around for more than a few years now, so we know how children learn!

Centre Philosophy

It’s all about values and what the centre sees is important for your child. We are guided by Te Whaariki (Early Childhood Curriculum) and Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

Cost & Flexibility

We operate as a Charitable Trust so all the money is used for children’s learning! The choice is yours - Kindergartens Waikato offers a range of sessions from 2 - 7.5 hours. Early Education Waikato offers full day sessions.
