All of the Early Childhood Centres on this list are licensed with the Ministry of Education and all use the same Early Childhood New Zealand curriculum. When choosing an Early Childhood Centre for your child/children there are many factors to consider, some of which are:

Location – Some people choose close to home, some people choose close to work, although in Ashburton everything is pretty close.

Teachers – ask who is going to be the Primary and Secondary (main and back-up) teachers for your child. It is important for healthy attachments and the settling in process to have one main teacher that your child can rely on for their routine needs and comfort.

Meals – What meals/snacks are provided? How are dietary needs catered for when doing baking as an experience at preschool? What foods are not allowed at preschool? (Due to allergies and Healthy Heart Award programme).

Recommendations – Ask around and see what preschools your friends take their children to, just keep in mind that other people had their reasons for choosing that particular preschool and what suits one family may not suit another.

Hours – Check whether the hours of opening suit your needs and also how many hours the centre would like you to book your child in for each day. This may not always suit your work hours. Book your child in for a little extra before your start time at work so it gives you time to settle your child in at the start of the day and not be in a rush to get to work and the same at the end of the day, allow time from finishing work to collecting your child at their booked in time.

Philosophy – Each Early Childhood Centre runs to their own general philosophy.

Outings – Some Early Childhood Centres take the children on outings in the community, sometimes planned and sometimes spontaneous (there is a different ratio of teachers:children when they go on outings.)

*****Have fun finding the right Early Childhood Service for your family, remember to go and visit (unannounced) to as many as you would like to check out. You will know when you look around and also how your child reacts if it is the right Early Childhood Centre for you.
