Welcome to The Learning Sanctuary Gisborne.
Located on a 2 acre picturesque property, our 130 place Long Day Care centre has long been servicing the community for the provision of Education and Care for young children and their families.
Catering for children aged birth to 12 years in a purpose built facility, our programs are responsive to the nature of our professional clientele. Our centre is designed to cater for children in groups according to their learning strengths, interest and emerging development. We nurture children’s social, physical, intellectual and linguistic advances in rooms which compliment their learning.
Our room divisions:
Darwin Room: 0 – 1 years
Mozart Room: 1 – 2 years
Edison Room: 2 – 3 years
Picasso Room: 3 – 4 years
Einstein Room: 4 – 5 years
Davinci Room: 5 – 12 years
Strong in our philosophy is the establishment of networks with local schools and community organisations as we consider this imperative in supporting families in their transition from home to Educational and Care settings, including that of formal schooling. We are proud of our relationships with such organisations in Gisborne, as this has impacted significantly on facilitating smoother transitions.
Our seasonal menus are developed using fresh local produce sourced by expert chefs who create meals that are not only meet above the daily required nutritional intake, but focus on being fun and delicious. We offer a variety of incursion and excursion programs including music, aerobics and yoga.
We look forward to meeting you and your family and encourage you to visit us at the centre for a tour!
Our centre proudly offers a kindergarten/preschool program to ensure your child is supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more your child will become Big School Ready.
