What’s your opening hours?
We are open from 7:00am – 6:00pm Monday to Friday and only close on statutory holidays.
How many teachers do you have?
We offer better than the Ministry required ratios. Our team of teachers are highly qualified, experienced and most importantly share a genuine passion and commitment to working with families to provide the best for our children. We compliment one another in our own individual beliefs and ideologies, and together we are proud of the philosophy that is Little Sparks. Please see our staff biographies for further information
What other services do you offer?
We are proud of the four nutritious meals we provide daily to help fuel our busy and energetic children. Thought, care and preparation go into ensuring we are providing the best possible nutritional meals with consideration to the Healthy Heart Programme. We have an onsite cook who prepares a hot lunch every day as well as morning and afternoon tea, and a late snack. Breakfast is also available for those early starters who need it.
What about subsidies?
If your child is over 3 years old we offer 20 hours free ECE. You may be eligible for some childcare assistance. For more details about subsidies visit https://www.workandincome.govt.nz
Little Sparks services went above and beyond for our boy Archie, the teachers we came into contact with day in and day out have a heart of gold towards not just Archie but all the children in the Pepi room. One thing I struggled with initially, was the rotation of teachers but that was due to their opening hours being so accommodating which was a positive for us. Little Sparks were great to us when we were in financial struggle and continued to support our family even outside of the childcare. Little Sparks became an extended part of our family instead of just another childcare.
