From the moment we walked through the door with our first son 2 years ago, we felt at home and since then the staff of OLS have become more like family then educators. Both our boys (3 & 18 months) go 3 days a week and they love it. The staff are great & they provide a really nurturing, safe environment that I am fully comfortable leaving them in.
Another bonus is they are aware of the needs of working parents & go out of their way to support us in anyway they can-something you really appreciate when your hours vary and last-minute child care is needed. Its also the best value for money child-care I found around our area.
Drop in and visit the centres, and see for yourself!
Come and Visit our Centres. Our teacher/child ratio in the Infant and Toddler campus is 1 teacher for 3 children. Our teaching practice follows the nz curriculum and the philipsophy of Reggio Emilia. While we teach the children we also learn a lot from them, One of our students (2year old) had bought in a tea set-we invited other children to bring in their tea sets, and we started to learn all about tea parties. While outside in our little Olvie tree garden, we were having lunch, I asked is this a tea party or a picinic? one of the boys answered "a picnic" Why is this a picnic , I said "No Tea Pot!" he answered .We learnt that you have to have a tea pot to have a tea party.
Come in and view our beautiful childcare's, both campuses are full of our children’s wonderful art creations, in the pre-school, when we start a new project the campus is transformed into an amazing place of learning. The children and teachers really immerse themselves into the project. Our projects are inspired by questions that the children ask such as.
“There is no land or air in space?”
We then go on a journey to discover the answer and learn more about the question.
Come in and visit we would love to see you.
