Our kitchen is the heart of our daycare centre in Papamoa Beach, where our talented chef creates healthy, well-balanced and nutritious meals, so you know your children are eating well every day, without you having to worry about packing lunches!
Nutrition is so important for young children as it is directly linked to all aspects of their growth and development. We are also mindful of any food allergies or introlerances your child may have. Please specify these at time of enrolment.
On a specified day, we have a centre-wide Lunch Box Day. The children thoroughly enjoy this, and it promotes independence and encourage self-help skills in preparation for school.
Each season, the menu at Happy Feet Childcare Papamoa is changed to suit the weather. We also want to 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. Curious about what your child is eating? Ask us for a copy of today’s menu.
At Happy Feet Papamoa, our daycare centre is located just moments away from Papamoa Beach – sometimes we can even hear the waves crashing as they roll into the shore!
Growing up near the beautiful coastline is something we hold close to our hearts, so from time to time our teachers have the opportunity to take the children at Happy Feet Childcare Papamoa on excursions to explore, learn and play in a natural environment. On Thursdays we also have a regular gym class at our early childhood centre. Please feel welcome to speak with one of our lovely teachers to learn more about this excursion within our community, we are more than happy to provide you with further information!
Portfolios & Storypark
Happy Feet Childcare Papamoa 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 daycare 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 our Papamoa daycare 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!
