Morrinsville Early Learning Centre
Central Kids Morrinsville provides high quality childcare for babies, toddlers and young children in a purpose built environment.
The CNI Early Education Services Trust operates eight childcare services in association with the Central North Island Kindergarten Trust's 48 kindergartens.
The centre operates under the Trust's quality management systems and employs trained, registered teachers (ECE) to manage the day-to-day operation of the centre and its educational programme for children. Full-time and part-time teacher aides are employed in order to meet/exceed the staff: child ratios required by the Ministry of Education.
The Centre's administrator is available each morning to assist you with enrolment and answer any queries you may have. Parent enquiries are always welcome so please call into the centre any weekday or phone to make an appointment at a time suitable to you.
Centre staff will be delighted to show you around, discuss the needs of your child, and assist you in the enrolment process.
Central Kids Morrinsville is open from 7.30 am to 5.30 pm Monday to Friday.
Staff:child ratios are in place to enhance the care and learning opportunities for children. We have qualified, experienced, highly skilled staff working across all age ranges. We believe in the concept of family/whanau grouping as this enhances the environment for learning. We also have areas where small groups of children can work and play thus providing a safe environment for younger children to safely explore their surroundings.
The curriculum base for all our programme development is Te WhÄriki, the national early childhood curriculum. This forms the basis of two strands of planning. Firstly, each child's individualised programme of development and learning and secondly the environmental planning that is in response to group/staff/community interests.
We recognise how important and significant our role is in the partnership with your family, child and our Centre and wish to work collectively with you to enhance your child's early learning years.
