20 Free Hours for 3-5 year olds available. We receive a subsidy from the government for 20ECE hours per week for children aged 3-5 (up to 6 years old).
We only charge fees for those children who attend for more than 20 hours per week or children under the age of 3. See below…
Fees for all children (all ages)
Our Fees are $6.00 per hour, for all booked hours, and all extra hours attended, except the 20 ECE-free-hours. This means if your child attends for more than 20 hours per week, you will need to pay $6.00 per hour for the extra hours eg $36 per week if they attend for 26 hours per week (20ECE + 6 x $6). Also if your child is under the age of 3, each hour they attend will cost $6 as the government ECE subsidy is not for children under 3. Some families may qualify for subsidies from WINZ to help cover this cost.
Optional Donations Our goal is to provide a top-level standard of care. One of the ways we try to do this is by maintaining a high staff-to-child ratio. The ratio we maintain (1:7) is actually higher than what is required by the Ministry of Education (1:10). In order to maintain this level of staffing and care, we rely on the gracious generosity of parents and supporters. All donations are tax-deductible.
