For Parents

At The Fire Station Early Learning Centre, we acknowledge and respect the values, needs, and aspirations that you have for your child. We encourage parents/whānau to spend time at our Centre to discuss any queries or questions you may have. Please bear in mind that the beginning and end of the day can be our busiest time.

Parents/friends and members of the community will have the opportunity to come to the centre and share a skill with the children e.g. Cooking, Art, Te Reo Māori, and Crafts etc. We also hold open days for parents, grandparents, caregivers and interested others to visit the Centre and be involved in the daily lives of our children.

Parent/whānau evenings are held periodically to provide an opportunity for staff and parents/whānau to discuss the program being offered and to listen to guest speakers e.g. Primary School teachers. From time to time we will conduct parent/whānau surveys to seek your feedback. Constructive comments and suggestions are always welcome.
