At KIDSpace we provide freshly made and cooked meals for the children at our centre each day – all year round. We see this as a special opportunity that allows us to not only provide nutritious meals but educate children about healthy food choices and relationships with food.
Nutrition is so important for young children as it is directly linked to all aspects of their growth and development.
Our kitchen is the heart of the centre, where our talented chef creates menus and amazing meals to suit the weather. We do this so that we can make the most of delicious, seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables.
So your child tastes a variety of meals, our menu is on a 4-week rotation. We are also mindful of any food allergies or intolerance your child may have. Please specify these at time of enrolment.
Curious about what your child is eating? Ask us for a copy of today’s menu.
The children in our Blossoms room (ages 4-6 years) are required to supply their own lunchbox each day. The children thoroughly enjoy this, and it promotes independence and encourage self-help skills in preparation for school.
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 so you never miss a treasured moment again. You and your family can also feel more engaged in your child’s development, and you decide who you would like to invite to experience your childs learning journey with you. A perfect way to share those special moments with loved ones down the line or overseas.
Although we love to use Storypark as an online platform to communicate with parents, we also use paper portfolios for each child.
Children enjoy finding their paper portfolio and reflecting on their past activities at the centre. It is a fantastic way for children to engage in self-recognition and reflect on their personal development, as well as being a treasured keepsake for their 21st Birthday!
