More about our baby care and toddler care
High teacher to child ratio
The Ministry of Education requires one teacher to every 5 children at the baby & toddler stage. At Adventureland we prefer to have a higher teacher to child ratio to ensure a high standard of care. We either have one teacher to every 2 children, or one to 3.
Flexibility to fit in with your child’s routine
We make a point of fitting in with your child’s routine, not ours. It’s best for your child (and you) if we follow your home routine and specific requirements as much as possible. For example, if a child needs to nap in the afternoon instead of morning; or only for 40 minutes at 10:30 AM and 2:00 PM; or have milk, their dummy or teddy bear, we can fit in with that.
Flexibility to fit in with your child’s culture and beliefs
We endeavour to make the centre a “home away from home” for your baby or toddler. That’s why we are happy to accommodate individual cultural preferences such as food, language, etc wherever possible. If these things matter to you, then they matter to us.
Daily diary and focus on communication
We put a lot of emphasis on communication so you feel included in your child’s development. Parents love to know what has happened for their baby or toddler during the day. We have systems in place so you don’t have to miss out!
We use a Daily Diary which includes lots of details and photos and this is posted to online software at 2:00 PM each day for you to view. You are also welcome to give feedback. We often pass on information when you pick your baby or toddler up too. We might discuss indications that your child is ready to transition to a new phase, for example.
