Health and Nutrition

As part of our commitment to maintaining healthy minds and bodies, we run an extracurricular health education program, Healthy Harold. We provide breakfast, and morning and afternoon tea daily, and it includes options such as fresh fruit, sandwiches, veggie muffins, carrots and hummus. Our menu is reviewed quarterly and we encourage input from families and work to specific dietary requirements, where required, whether they be cultural or intolerance based.

Activities

Paints, drawing tools, and craft materials are always available to the children so that they can let their imagination take control, and, in the process, build fine and gross motor skills and learn to express themselves.

Centre activities:

  • Healthy Harold Program
  • Japanese language courses – one lesson per week
  • Weekly Small Sports
  • Weekly dance lessons

Annual special events:

  • Chinese New Year
  • Waitangi Day
  • NAIDOC Week
  • Harmony Week

Children with Additional Needs

We welcome all children with a wide variety of abilities, backgrounds or needs. If your child requires extra medical, emotional or learning support, we will tailor our care for them and work closely with you to ensure they have a smooth transition into our centre. This includes seeking support from other networks or professionals to bridge any gaps in our service delivery.

Some of the additional needs and support which can be provided at our centre include but are not limited to:

  • English as a second language
  • Autism spectrum
  • Dyslexia
  • Physical disabilities
  • Minor or serious medical conditions
  • Emotional issues

Our team cultivates a warm atmosphere of inclusion through continuous improvement and open communication. We are confident that your child will benefit from our dedicated approach to care and education.

Please speak to our staff about your child’s individual needs and how we can accommodate them.

Together we can create a plan to help them reach their full potential.

Child Safety & Welfare

All aspects of our operations are in line with the National Quality Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework. This includes our Health and Safety policy. All educators follow our health and safety policies and procedures and have access to these online.

We understand that leaving your child in someone else’s care is a difficult thing to do. We assure you that safety is our top priority and our educators follow safety practices every day.

At all times, we ensure that our centre is secure and free of hazards, both inside and out. Fire drills and UV checks are a regular part of our informed approach to safety. We emphasise safety education by creating an atmosphere of safety awareness in all aspects of the day. You will see visual safety guides around our centre, such as our sun smart posters. These tools support our lessons about safety, which we discuss as part of the curriculum. We take every opportunity to act as role models, pointing out tripping or slipping hazards and putting hats and sunscreen on for outdoor play. We talk about stranger danger so that children can build awareness and can freely talk to us if they are scared or worried. We aim to teach children to think about their own safety habitually too.
