About Us

The Rosebank Early Childhood Centre is a communtiy centre located within the campus of the Rosebank School 217 Avondale. The centre was licensed in 2008 for twenty five children from age two year up to five years old when they are ready to go to Primary School. The centre is owned by the Pacific Islands Early Childhood Teacher's Association, a Charitable Trust formed and operated since the year 2000 in Auckland.

The centre opens five days of the week including school holidays from 7am to 5pm.

Our centre is governed and managed by a Board made up of parents and teachers. It is staffed by three qualified early childhood teachers holding Bachelor's Degrees in early childhood education teaching from the University of Auckland. There is also a support network made up of two teacher trainees and volunteers.

Rosebank early childhood centre welcomes all children from different ethnic groups. At present, our roll includes children from different back grounds such as Niue, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, Maori, Cook Islands, South Africa and Pakeha.

The medium of instructions include both Samoan, English, Maori as well as other languages of different respective children who attend the centre.

The centre is located within the Rosebank School grounds which makes it easier for parents to drop off their children who attend both the school and the early childhood centre. The centre is well-equipped both in the inside play area and a beautiful playground outside where children enjoy playing and running around on a well padded artificial green grass at ground level. The playground area is securely fenced which includes a backyard for the childrens' garden project.

Twenty government funded-hours weekly in early childhood education are available to all 3 years and four year old children who attend our centre. Parents must make use of these funding by enrolling your children and receive quality edcuation for them at our centre.

We have extended our centre from 25 children to 38 children including under-twos. Enrolement is now open by ringing up the supervisor's contact number : 09 8286805.

 

Hours of Operation:

 7am - 5:00 pm (Monday - Friday, including school holidays)

Closes on all Public Holidays.

Settling In:

New parents are welcome to sit for a while with their children so that their children are familiar with  the environment, staff and  other children. 

Facilities

Our centre is adjacent to the Samoan Bilingual Tupulaga Unit of Rosebank Primary School overlooking the Avondale Community Rugby Park used for our sports and games as required. Attending the Bilingual Unit is the next stage of education for many of our children once they leave our centre.

Children have flexible sleeping routine where they can sleep if they want to while others rest or involved in quiet activities. 

There is constant dialouge with parents and families through monthly newsletters and verbal conversation on a daily basis. A Parents Day is held every term where parents are invited to come in and view their children's work such as portfolios, participate in the activities and discuss any information regarding their children.

Fees are affordable with 20 Hours ECE for children who are 3 & 4 years old.
