First Steps Maich is located in the heart of greater Manukau and only a short walk to South Mall, Manurewa. Our centre is also located only a couple of minute's drive from Clendon Park and The Gardens. We have a prime focus on offering the best quality child care and education that is available in the greater Manukau area. We offer separate learning environments, each tailored to children’s developmental needs. We provide our children with meaningful opportunities for developing friendships and social skills, inspiring them in their journeys of discovery. We are proud to be part of a multicultural community and take responsibility for our learning and growth as a culturally rich centre.
At First Steps Maich, parent involvement is very important. We value and respect all our parents and we are always open for new ideas. Parents are communicated to on a daily basis through teachers talking to them or through newsletters. Children’s learning is communicated to parents through the Daily Learning Experiences Book that the teachers write in daily, as well as the children’s Individual Development Programmes. Regular parent teachers evening are held for the parents to come in and share their thoughts with us. Excursions and end of year events such as Christmas parties are organised. The parents’ participation during these events is awesome. Parents are welcome to give us feedback on our planning, our routines and also suggest new ideas in regards to our learning experiences.
