Transport & Excursions
We proudly operate our own Little Seeds centre van, allowing us to help support both new and existing families who require assistance with transport to the centre. We also utilise this awesome resource for excursions out and about in our community, including to gymnastics at the local Waitara Hub!
Playball is specialised sport coaching programme for preschoolers, which is held at the centre once per week for a small charge.
Because it is more important for young children to learn confidence and how to play well with others, the sessions are non-competitive and designed to provide all children with the opportunity to participate at their own level and have fun!
As well as with other forms of exercise, Playball helps the tamariki to improve their physical health and general wellbeing. Children learn social skills such as cooperation, communication, listening, sharing, teamwork and sportsmanship. The sessions also promote life skills such as a having a balanced lifestyle, a positive attitude and increased self-esteem, increased confidence and motivation, focus and listening skills, fair play, independence, persistence and leadership.

Portfolios & Storypark
We use an awesome app called Storypark, which allows whānau to follow their child’s early learning journey and to ensure you don’t miss out on important centre communications.
Photos, videos and audio capture your child’s learning and development so you and your family can feel more engaged in your child’s learning. You can decide who you would like to invite to Storypark so they can see the learning journey too.
Although we love to use Storypark as an online platform to communicate with parents, we also use portfolios for each child.
Children enjoy finding their portfolio and reflecting on their past activities at the centre. It is a fantastic way for children to engage in self-recognition and revisit past learning.
