What is included in your fees?

On top of the excellent child to staff ratios and early learning provided at Nurture and Bloom, our fees include portfolio books, nappies, nutritious meals, app based software and paper portfolios to document your child's learning journey.

Do you offer 20 hours ECE?

Yes, Nurture and Bloom is a government approved ECE programme. The Government funds the cost of children aged 3-5 years to attend early childhood education (ECE) for up to 20 hours a week. This funding is called 20 Hours ECE and is available for up to six hours a day for children in approved programmes, like our centre.

Do you have a transition to school programme?

Yes, our Transition to School Programme helps build a strong foundation of Independence and essential skills for children to transition to school as confident, capable learners. Contact us to find out more!

What age can my child start?

Our centre caters for infants from around 3 months up to school age. Please contact us to discuss our pre-planned settling process for your child.

What are your opening hours?

We are open all year round, Monday – Friday 7am – 6.00pm (Te Rapa) and 8am - 5pm (Te Anau), including school holidays and the Christmas/New Year period for your convenience. We’re closed statutory days only.

What do I need to bring?

Our centre provides all water, wipes, nappies, food, sunscreen and bedding if your child requires a sleep (note that only Te Rapa supplys nappies, wipes and food). We ask that parents provide suitable named clothing for the season, including 2 changes. Any prescription medicines with an action plan e.g. asthma and allergies will need to be provided.

We have more than one child. Is there a discount?

Yes. There is a 10% discount for eldest sibling/s that attends within the same family. Please note, discounts do not add together (i.e 3rd child is 10%, not 10% plus a further 10%, if any other promotion applies, the greater discount is applied).

Can a friend collect our child?

Only those listed on your enrolment form can pick up your child. Talk to us to add others as an authorised adult.
