How we did in our review and the direction it took us

In early 2021, ERO visited between lockdowns. This was a surprise Aka Rangi (full) review, when we were only due an Aka Nuku (compliance), as this was our first review under new management.

We were happy to go for full review as despite the chaotic year of lockdowns in 2020, we knew we had great processes and systems for compliance management and record keeping and had carried out a lot of internal evaluation and centre development in reducing group sizes, introducing new curriculum planning, surveying families, developing our philosophy and we were feeling confident and heading in a great direction. We had a clear strategic plan in place for the future and were happy on the journey.

We were glad we did the full Aka Rangi review and were pleased with the outcome. It was an amazing opportunity to discuss our journey with the reviewers and get feedback. Together with ERO we agreed two focusses for the next three years. These were to increase opportunities for parents and whānau to contribute to the curriculum, and to enhance teaching practices to provide an individualised, culturally responsive learning programme for all children.

We are well on this path, with a culturally rich curriculum and whānau contributing in beautiful ways, sharing their food, language, music and culture, not just during events and celebrations, but everyday. We know who we are. This really is home to us, our tamariki and whānau and we are exceptionally proud of our team.

  • As you enter this warm, friendly daycare, you feel like you have walked back through the front door of your own home. Highly professional and trained staff who have educated and nurtured our daughter to the best of her own learning ability. The centre provides fresh healthy meals, which has sustained a healthy living for our family at home. Teachers definitely model positive values that is always evident when reflecting with our daughter on a daily basis. The centre has been very handy, travelling to Epsom within (15 mins) and back home (5 mins). You will definitely not be disappointed! Thank you Bizzy kids for everything!Jacinta Simpson
  • Thank you so much to all the lovely teachers at bizzy kidz that take such wonderful care of Grayson. We have been really impressed with your centre especially the things Grayson is learning. On the weekends he always talks about all the teachers and his friends. The love you show my boy makes me so happy and I go to work without worrying. Thanks for being such a great daycare.Michelle & Dylan
  • My experience with Bizzy Kids has been excellent. Enrolments were super easy and he settled into his new environment very quickly. They are great with communication through their weekly whanau updates via email and also a quick chat when dropping or picking up your kid. With their covered outdoor section, my toddler has many different activities to do. I am very happy with the all the Kaiako at Bizzy Kids. All good news from our little family. We highly recommend.Jamie Scott
