Soon to open its doors to the Raglan community is Lets Grow Early Learning Centre. Lets Grow is a new purpose built centre for children 0 – 5 years old.
Located on the corner of Wainui Road and Riria Kereopa Memorial drive next door to new cafe Rock-it, you only need to drive past to discover the centre utilises natural elements for exploration and play – drift wood sandpits, an organic garden and orchard and differing natural rocks.
The centre, due to open in February 2014, will be open Monday – Friday 7.30am – 6pm, and 8am – 4pm on Saturdays. All meals and snacks will be provided and prepared by a local macrobiotic trained chef.
Local business owners Kylie and Aaron have emphasised their vision for Lets Grow to be a quality service and endeavor to provide something extra for the families of Raglan.
The centre’s curriculum will be based on Te Whāriki, the Early Childhood curriculum, interwoven with some elements of Steiners philosophy and their own Early Childhood environmental education. Children at the centre will learn about sustainability, part of their daily routine will include attending to the centres worm farm, organic gardens and orchard and composting the scraps from the kitchen.
Parents can make inquiries by popping into the centre or calling 825 7367.
Lets Grow would like to thank the Mathers Builders team and tradespeople and HVC consulting for their great work on the centre build.
