Friends on Fraser Educare is a recently established, privately owned education and care service situated in the Tauranga suburb of Greerton. We provide quality early childhood education and care through a small well resourced centre where staff work closely with the family/whanau of the children who attend, and involving the wider community in our programme.
We provide a sound bicultural presence in the centre through a strong and natural integration of the Maori dimension into the daily life of the centre.
Owner/Directors Moira Parry and Vanessa Kururangi stress the importance of making themselves visilble and available to both staff and whanau, for support, guidance, and sharing of information.
"...when I first came for a visit,the educators were wonderful and polite, and I could see that the children do a lot of busy and interesting things".
"...patient, insightful and purposeful observations".
"...engaging thought provoking conversations with staff".
