What parents are saying

Hand and Hand -  Best day care centre

As a high quality Early Learning Centre at Auckland and Hamilton, we provide a stimulating environment, as well as the opportunity for the personal development of each child within a nurturing atmosphere in which the distinctive qualities of each individual, including staff members, students, and parents, are recognized, cultivated, and valued.

As the Best day care centre, our teachers get to know the children and approach them in a warm and kind manner in order to truly comprehend their requirements as well as how they feel about themselves, other people, and life in general. This allows us to identify their requirements since we are aware that one size does not fit all, and the connections that we make are an essential part of us building a perfect environment that is tailored to the children. As the Best day care centre, we help children improve their language, pre-reading, literacy, and math abilities as they prepare for school. We believe that with this foundation and the additional attention we make on personal, emotional, and social development, the children will be well equipped to move on to the next stage of their education confidently.
