Our Fees

Our multi award winning centre offers you and your child the following:

  • premium ECE services,
  • awe-inspiring environments,
  • generously spacious play rooms and playgrounds (150% – 200% more space than Ministry of Education standards),
  • the “best of the best” qualified and experienced teachers,
  • our online patented learning system (Learning Roots & Shoots®) via our secure parent portal,
  • fully cooked, healthy and nutritious meals,
  • excellent teacher : child ratios,

all at surprisingly affordable and competitive fees that are not the highest in the neighbourhood (and we encourage you to explore this).

Support is available with 20 ECE hours subsidy for over 3 year olds.

We are also WINZ approved for all ages. Click here

We offer genuine sibling discounts of 10% to each younger (and usually higher fee paying) child. We place a high value on your loyalty, confidence and trust, and so we are happy to extend the best discounts to your younger child for as long as possible and at the highest savings to you (i.e. we dont apply a token sibling discount to older and usually lower fee paying and soon-to-graduate siblings, as most other centres choose to do).

Our fee structure is flexible and covers half days, school or kindergarten hours and full days, or a mix and match of all of the above.

Please feel free to get in touch using the contact form below or pop in and have a chat with our centre manager to discuss the best booking option for your child to experience “childcare like you’ve never seen before!”
