Creche has four individual centres that cater for different aged children based at the University of Waikato and another centre based at Fraser High School. Each centre has an individual style as they specialise in working with a specific age group of children. These centres and age groups are:
There are some things that they all have in common:
- Campus Creche provides an environment for children to have extended, sustained and meaningful learning opportunities and outcomes throughout their Creche day.
- All centres visit each other and the children from different centres spend time together on a regular basis.
- Each centre has a strong emphasis on encouraging children to work towards becoming independent. This is with support and encouragement from staff and at the level each child is able to cope with.
- Children of all ages are encouraged to negotiate and problem solve, giving them strategies that will help them develop their social competence skills.
