Why Choose Rise and Shine?

People Who Care

We are passionate about children and their learning. All teaching teams engage in ongoing reflective korero, professional development, training and theoretical exploration.

Quality care & education

We follow the NZ Early Childhood Curriculum – Te Whariki. The Reggio Emilia principles incorporated into our program further support and develop children’s thinking and learning.

Free nappies & formula

We provide free nappies for our under 2 year olds and S26 Step 2 formula for babies 6-12 months. That’s two things you don’t have to worry about when your kids come to Rise & Shine.

Cooked nutritious meals

Good nutrition is essential for optimal brain development in the early years. We provide beautifully cooked, well-balanced meals for your child.

Annual trips

Our annual trip involving the whole centre is something we all look forward to. These trips are additional to the trips each room organises for their group of children.

FREE swimming lessons & active movement sessions

We offer specialised weekly active movement sessions for our children. Free swimming lessons for our 4 year olds.
