Welcome to Smart Start Care and Education Centre, a fully licensed childcare centre for children aged 0-6 years. We take pride in providing your child with a supportive and caring environment, including superior facilities, quality educational equipment and programmes, and well qualified teaching staff.
We provide quality care and education based on Te Whaariki, the early childhood curriculum of the Ministry of Education. We include both indoor and outdoor play, with a focus on children learning at their own pace through play and interaction with others.
Each child receives a personal journal which is kept updated with their achievements, artwork and photos. This is a wonderful way to keep a record of your child¿s progress, and is given as a gift to the child when they leave Smart Start.
All meals are provided, with the exception being baby formula. We encourage children to be involved with the food preparation - including growing fruit, vegetables and herbs. A weekly menu is available for parents to review.
Our centre offers the 20 hours ECE subsidy for all 3-4 year old children.
Please visit our website to learn more about our centre, then call or email to discuss all your childcare requirements today.
