"I have two boys who have attended North Haven in both the Koru and Fern room from when they were 7 months old (now 3 and almost 5!). North Haven stood out from the day I walked in the door with the kind and welcoming introduction we had from the kaiako. The teaching team are incredible, with most being in the centre for a number of years and of whom all are so dedicated to their role in providing varied and tailored education opportunities in a kind and caring way. The learning spaces are varied and huge! My boys have loved the ability to get outside each day whether it is digging holes, kicking balls in the field or climbing through the bushes. I can see in my boys the values they bring home which are taught within North Haven about the importance of kindness, community and connections. Would recommend North Haven to any whanau looking for a safe and caring environment for their tamariki".
"I chose to bring my daughter to North Haven preschool because for starters I’m a nursing student at Ara institute and it was convenient having my daughter across road. Secondly the teachers and management made my daughter and I feel at home and the atmosphere was warm, vibrant and welcoming, my heart just knew that North Haven was the preschool for my daughter. I breast fed my daughter when she started and I loved how supportive they were with breast feeding mums."
“North Haven has been such a blessing for our family. We moved here from overseas, and Maggie immediately felt at home. I love that the staff always greet her by name, and she comes home with stories about how her teachers have created such fun things for the kids to do and experience. I highly, highly recommend North Haven to all parents looking for a safe, inviting, fun learning environment for their little ones.”
“When I was returning to work after having our first child George, I was anxious about leaving my precious baby in someone else’s care, but I had no need to worry because the teachers at North Haven showed such kind motherly care to my 11month old. They kept him safe, warm and George thrived on all the learning through play opportunities that the teachers offered him”
“Throughout this recent pandemic the teachers at North Haven have been a wonderful support and helped us parents and our children to cope with the constant challenges and changes which is a testament to their dedication to providing our kids with opportunities to learn in the midst of difficult times”
