20 hours ECE
The 20 hours FREE ECE scheme is available for all three and four year old children.
Funding is only available for up to six hours per day to a maximum of 20 FREE hours per week.
Children attending for more than 20 hours may use the 20 FREE ECE hours, then apply for Work and Income Childcare Subsidy (eligibility criteria applies) for the remainder. Please see your local Work and Income Office for application forms and information.
Work and Income Childcare Subsidy
The Work and Income Childcare Subsidy is offered to parents of children under the age of five. This subsidy is administered by Work and Income. It is assessed on the parents income, whilst taking into account the number of children in their care.
More information can be found on the Working for Families website or phone 0800 774 004.
We have onsite cook that provides for morning, lunch and afternoon food times taking into consideration nutritional guidelines, and any cultural and special dietary requirements such as allergies. Our teachers encourage positive attitudes in children to support healthy food choices and have created a four week cycle menu in collaboration with families.
