ABC Aidanfield is a purpose built childcare centre that has a cosy and nurturing environment, with lots of space for the children to learn and play. Our outdoor area is very large which allows us to provide a range of experiences including obstacle course’s also helps develop the child’s gross motor skills, balancing and hand-eye coordination. We are also very fortunate enough to have a very large sandpit that they children enjoy all types of activates in; baking, making tracks for the trucks, making sandcastles and the favourite thing is playing with the water. At ABC Aidanfield we provide yummy and healthy morning and afternoon teas as well as fantastic lunches provided by our on site cook who has been working with management to provide a healthy and nutritious menu for all the centres within the company.
Our lovely welcoming nursery (Kiwi room) provides care and education for our under 2 children. Primary care is provided for the children in this room, with the child deciding which teacher they would like to choose for this rewarding job. Alongside our curriculum which promotes discovery, confidence, maths, language and social skills they have their own playground and enjoy spending time in their sandpit, riding bikes, reading books or talking to Duchess the rabbit.
The toddler room (Pukeko room) is a fantastic place for the children to build relationships with their peers by engaging in play and generally having a good time. Our teachers work with the children’s interests and extend on these by providing resources and activities that encourage persistence and growth in all the children.
The preschool room (Kea room) is a place where all children are encouraged to take part in activities that are of interest to them, they are given the opportunity to experiment with ideas, ways of thinking and doing things. Our unique Be School Ready initiative helps the children develop the skills needed for the transition from preschool to school.
We understand that parents, family and whanau are the most important part of a child’s life. We support parents/whanau in their parenting journey, working with and alongside them as their child grows and develops, especially taking time to celebrate each and every mile stone along the way.
Please don’t hesitate to call in for a visit any time; we love to show people around our centre. We look forward to meeting you in the near future.
