Kindergarten & Care

"Staff have been very good in caring and teaching my daughter.  They all treat her like their own child and all other children in class.  Great work in making sure you have the right people to care for your students."

  You have a great team. We felt comfortable leaving Ella there in your care. She learnt such a lot in such a sort amount of time.

I love that the teaching team fostered Stevie's passion for numbers, and gave her the room to be the leader when Stevie was that way inclined. Scallywagg's are lucky to have such a dedicated group of teachers in that kindergarten, the quality and passion they put into their teaching is amazing.

"Toby had many wonderful experiences in the time he was in the programme.  For example, visiting the Pakeke Centre was something Toby particularly enjoyed.  He also loved the hands on activites he took part in such as cooking and taking apart different appliances etc.  Going to the fun gym and the many excursions around Waipukurau, such as visiting the library and the local parks, were another of his favourites.  We feel that these things and much more have enabled Toby to develop a larger awareness of the world around him.  Keep up the fantastic work.  We loved the warm, family vibe at Scallywaggs and the teachers always made us feel welcome.  The quality of care, learning and development children get from the programme at Scallywaggs is second to none.  We were only sorry we hadn't enrolled Toby sooner. Well done!"

" Our family could not operate without the teaching staff at Scallywaggs.  Across all of the class rooms our children are loved and supported, which makes our busy lifestyle easier to manage.  The learning that happens at Scallywaggs is invaluable, and I'm sure is a big part of why our oldest child has fitted into school so well "

"The Graduation programme is awesome, we felt it really helped Hannah to become more confident and made her transition to school very easy.  We were always informed by the teachers as to what is happening and how Hannah was adjusting to new roles and new experiences.  We feel that Hannah has benefited from the Graduation class by her confidence growing.  Being amongst her peers she has really come out of her shell.  It has helped her to become more of a leader as opposed to sitting and watching and being a follower.  We feel that Graduation Kindergarten has been absolutely brilliant and is very well run.  I am very happy to say that I recommend the whole Scallywaggs system to anybody"

"We would like to acknowledge how caring and amazing ALL the teachers really are at ALL the different houses.  It is so nice that everyone always says hello and knows everyones names and says have a nice day or asks how your day was etc.  It really can make a huge difference, especially if children are upset and I am trying to rush out the door for work.  Overall we feel that Scallywaggs is awesome!"

"Sonny loved his time in Graduation Kindegarten and was very sad to leave.  It was such a safe and welcoming environment and it was lovely to know that everyday I dropped Sonny off to a place like that.  I will always be grateful for Sonny's time at Scallywaggs and I know that he will always remember it with such fondness"

"Jaden has always had the best care with Scallywaggs and we as a family have always felt welcomed.  They go the extra mile to see that all our needs are met.  We appreciate the love that goes into the learning from all the care givers.  We are eternally greatful to the whole group at Scallwaggs.  It has been a wonderful journey and we let others know how wonderful the centre is "
