Here are some questions we get asked by parents on a regular basis. If you need any extra information, or if you have concerns or queries that aren't covered below, please feel free to contact us anytime.

  • What are your operating hours?
    The Fire Station is open from 7:30am-5pm, Monday to Friday. Flick is open from 7:45am – 5pm, Monday to Friday.
  • What are your child to teacher ratios?
    These vary depending on the age group. In our 0-1yr and 1-2yr old Flick rooms, we have an average ratio of 1 : 4. In our 2-3.5yr old Toddler room, we have an average ratio of 1 : 6. In our 3.5-6yr old Preschool room we have an average ratio of 1 : 8. In our 3-6yr old Kindy room we have an average ration of 1 : 10.
  • How do I request a visit to the centre?
    You can pop in for a visit anytime, Monday to Friday, 10am-11am is best. We would love to show you around.
  • What is your capacity (#children) for the different age groups?
    Flick Infants Room (0-1yrs) – 6 children. Flick Room (1-2yrs) – 14 children. Koru Toddlers Room (2-3.5yrs) – 28 children. Kowhai Preschool Room (3.5-6yrs) – 34 children. Kowhai Kindy Room (3-6yrs) – 38 children.
  • Are meals provided at your centre?
    Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are all provided, with the exception of our Kindy day children (3-6yrs), who attend 8:30-2:30pm, and who bring their own packed lunch box for lunch. We also have a ‘lunchbox day’ on Fridays in our Koru Toddler and Kowhai Preschool rooms, where children are encouraged to bring a lunchbox with several healthy snacks, and our teachers support them to make their own sandwich for lunch upon arrival (bread, toppings and spreads are all provided by the centre).
  • What does my child need to bring?
    We ask that they bring along a bag each day with at least three changes of named clothes (we do like to get creative and engage in messy play opportunities!), a named drink bottle, nappies if required and any special comfort toys/snugglies that they may need during their transition process or for their sleep time.
  • Are you open over the holidays?
    We are open throughout the year, except for public holidays, and we usually close for up to two weeks over the Christmas period. We also offer families a holiday discount of four weeks per year. Be sure to ask us if you have any questions about this.
