Childcare Prices

At Grow our primary concern is the safety, well-being, care, education and happiness of your child, but we also understand the stress additional costs and high fees can put on a family. As a privately owned childcare centre we are not driven by profit, but by our community spirit and care for our whanau.

Our directors, Aaron and Michelle are actively involved in a number of not-for-profit charities and work to give back to the community through the care that Grow can offer. To that end our fees are structured to reduce the impact to families in Papamoa without compromising our high levels of service.

How to use the pricing matrix

Select the number of long days and short days in the appropriate age table (Under 3 or Over 3 Years old) and find the intersection of the two axis.
Eg: Over 3 years old, 3 short days and 1 long day = $42.00

Minimum Enrolment and Attendance

A minimum of two (2) days per week enrolment is required. You have the flexibility of deciding whether you will enrol for “Short Days” or “Full Days”. Short Days are 6 hours per day and Full Days are up to 10 hours per day between 7am and 5.30pm.

Your child will need to attend a minimum of 6 hours each day they are enrolled at our Centre.

20 Hours ECE Free

Our Centre offers the 20 Hours ECE subsidy which is provided by the Ministry of Education to all 3, 4 and 5-year-old children. The cost of your 3 – 5-year-old attending our Centre can be fully funded for a maximum of 6 hours per day for 20 hours per week. This is not based on household income, however to be eligible you must complete a 20 Hours ECE Attestation form.
