5 Great Reasons to Enrol Your Child at Piccolini Havelock North
Piccolini Private Kindergarten and Childcare Havelock North consists of friendly and passionate teachers, a wide range of resources, a spacious outdoor area and plenty of calming corners for much-needed restful down time. However there’s a lot more to our Havelock North centre than this. Here are 5 great reasons why you should choose our kindergarten and childcare centre.
1. Local Excursions
Havelock North is a wonderful part of New Zealand and the perfect are for children to grow up! The teachers at our kindy and childcare centre love our town and we want to show our tamariki our favourite local spots. We like to regularly take a group of children out beyond our gates and into the community, walking to the local school, visiting the library and fire brigade, and even hopping on a bus to explore spots further afield in the Havelock North area. Our excursions are fun-filled days where children get to discover more about where we live.
We believe that one of the best ways we can support our busy whanau is by helping out with the often-challenging task of preparing food. Each day, our Havelock North kindergarten and childcare provides nourishing morning and afternoon tea for every child, so you can rest assured they are having a healthy snack twice a day.
Also, we use this opportunity to get the children involved in the kitchen here at our centre: our teachers bake with the kids, which gives them the chance to work on their coordination and motor skills, their patience and independence.
3. A Warm Sense of Belonging
Our local community means so much to us and we work every day to make sure each and every child feels a sense of belonging. We do this by celebrating everything from NZ holidays like Matariki and Waitangi to celebrating important dates from different cultures, children’s birthdays and other special days like dress up day. This instils in our children the idea that we are all one big community and helps our tamariki develop traits like empathy, compassion and self-worth.
4. Storypark App
We know how much parents want to be included in their tamariki’s daily lives. By using the Storypark app, whanau are informed of their child’s learning through regularly updated photos, videos and stories. Whether you invite grandparents, aunts and uncles or keep it just for caregivers, Storypark keeps you up to date on our Havelock North kindergarten and childcare centre’s latest news and communications while letting you enjoy your youngster’s special moments and milestones.
5. Preparation for School
When it comes to our older children, there is a large, yet gentle focus on preparing our soon-to-be graduates for the next step – school. Our Transition to School programme helps give them the skills they will need to make this transition easier by fostering their independence, confidence and a love of learning.
