We participate in the government 20 hour ECE scheme for children aged 3 years and over.
All attending children who qualify by age are eligible to be funded by the government for up to 6 hours per day to a maximum of 20 hours per week free of charge.
If your child attends another early childhood education centre as well as this one then these hours may be shared between the centres to the maximum of 6 hours per day and 20 hours per week across all centres attended. See more information on 20 hours ECE visit www.minedu.govt.nz
