A great start with Up­town Kids

Central Leader - - News -

The Up­town Kids child­care cen­tres, lo­cated in the city fringe sub­urbs of New­ton, Eden Ter­race and Ep­som, aim to pro­vide qual­ity care and Bud­ding ed­u­ca­tion in en­joy­able home-like en­vi­ron­ments.

The ex­pe­ri­enced staff pro­vide a de­vel­op­men­tally ap­pro­pri­ate play­based pro­gramme based on child ob­ser­va­tions and Te Whariki, the New Zealand Early Child­hood Cur­ricu­lum.

This en­ables chil­dren to learn through in­ter­ac­tions with other chil­dren, adults and the en­vi­ron­ment.

By pro­vid­ing a safe nur­tur­ing en­vi­ron­ment, where chil­dren are val­ued and their play sup­ported, with both planned and spon­ta­neous ac­tiv­i­ties, chil­dren will de­velop to their fullest po­ten­tial.

The cen­tres are li­censed for less than 27 chil­dren from ages zero to five-year-olds with the av­er­age child to adult ra­tio of one per four chil­dren. This means more per­son­alised care and bet­ter com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween staff, chil­dren, par­ents and the com­mu­nity.

The cen­tres are bou­tique so fam­i­lies have a bet­ter bond with the staff as well as with the other fam­i­lies that at­tend.

Staff li­aise with par­ents to main­tain chil­dren’s rou­tines as closely as pos­si­ble and to sup- port the par­ent­ing role in to­day’s busy life­style.

The cen­tres of­fer all­day ses­sions and, due to high de­mand, they have opened a new cen­tre in Ep­som.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, you can visit their web­site www.up­townkids.co.nz or email them on en­quiries@up­townkids.co.nz.

Al­ter­na­tively, their con­tact de­tails are New­ton phone 308-9798, Eden Ter­race, phone 377-3734 and Ep­som, phone 523-1716.

Fun for all: Above, get­ting creative with play dough.
