We believe that it is each family’s choice as to how long and how often their children attend Magnolia Tree Childcare Raglan, so we have no daily or weekly minimum enrolment times. Our fees are charged by each booked hour and we charge $6 per hour with a weekly maximum of $200. The WINZ subsidy is available for families which qualify; visit www.workandincome.govt.nz
Our hourly rate includes an e-portfolio with Educa for each child, where you can view the observations and documentation recorded by the teachers about your child’s learning and development. E-portfolios provide us with more options of documenting learning than a standard paper portfolio. We can add videos, and use extensive amounts of photos, as we are not prohibited by colour printing costs. This allows us as teachers to share more of your child’s learning journey with you and to really capture some of the special moments which mere words cannot adequately describe.
Through research and our own experience, we know that children settle more easily when they are comfortable with their environment. We recommend that children attend at least twice a week. This will help them to develop a sense of belonging to the centre, to develop close relationships with teachers and close friendships with other children.
