Our Centre Cook provides a nutritional morning tea and afternoon tea daily.
Tamariki bring their pouaka kai (lunch boxes) on either side of Wednesday and a shared warm meal is provided every Wednesday.
Community, Culture & Celebration
Parents love the rich sense of community at The Point, and our curriculum reflects our philosophy for strong relationships. We absolutely love coming together with our tamariki, whānau and community to strengthen our relationships with one another.
At The Point we love to celebrate! Whether it be a national week, cultural celebration, a calendar date or a themed dress up day. Some of the events on our annual calendar include Chinese New Year, Seaweek – Kaupapa Moana, Saint Patrick’s Day, Samoan Language week, Matariki Maori New Year, Tongan Language Week and Diwali.
The Point is located centrally, neighbouring Gisborne Girls High School and close to town means there are plenty of opportunities for community involvement including the Botanical Gardens and Electrinet Sports Centre.
We have a talented group of multicultural kaiako who look forward to being a part of your child’s learning journey. Come in and see us Monday to Friday 7.45 to 5.15pm.
Portfolios & Storypark
We 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 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 the 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!
