Did you know? Childcare Hub was set up to help childcare centre owners, operators and developers create great outcomes for new and existing childcare centres. All companies within Childcare Hub are leaders in their chosen fields and offer world-class products and services. They have come together to make the process of equipping a childcare centre easy and seamless, no matter what service you require. Put simply, if you’re setting up a childcare centre, Childcare Hub is your one stop shop! The newly opened All About Children Childcare in Opaheke, Papakura is a great example.
All About Children in Papakura
This centre is of a very high standard, designed to meet today's ever-increasing expectations from the Ministry of Education and – most importantly – those of the parents and children. Every aspect is thoroughly considered, from the initial planning and how the resource consent is dealt with, to the choice of builder, product selection, acoustics, resources, playground design, centre management systems, marketing and staffing solutions.
Childcare Hub partners involved in this very successful project include:
LifeStyle Architectural Services: Design & Consenting
Infocare: Management Systems
LSG (Grocare): Furniture
Rubiix Accounting: Accounting & Financial Services
Playscape: Playground Design & Construction
TigerTurf: Supply of Synthetic Grass
LSG: leaders in Indoor and outdoor furniture
LSG provided a comprehensive planning and consulting service for Manjot and the team at All About Children. “We sat down with management and gained information about the style and layout of the furnishings and resources that best suited the philosophy and look they wanted,” says LSG General Manager, Heinz Woodman.
After receiving the plans for the new centre, the LSG design team drafted the furniture layout for each room and provided 3D renders for the different areas to bring to life what it could look like before the building was even finished.
“We then presented a full quotation and installation proposal to Manjot and his team and were successful,” explains Heinz. “The delivery and installation went very smoothly. Having our own team of professional installers on site, we made sure the centre looked fully complete and amazing for the handover. The overall outcome was fabulous, and this centre showcases the work we do. LSG leads the indoor and outdoor childcare furniture market and this project is a perfect example of why”.
Signing in and out is easy with Infocare
Infocare Systems has provided student management software to All About Children childcare centres for several years and recently shared in the excitement of the opening of their latest centre in Opaheke, Papakura.
“This fantastic new centre will be the first in the All About Children group to install and use the Infocare Digital Signature option, where parents and caregivers can sign their children in and out with a simple signature on a tablet,” explains Iain Graham of Infocare. “Signatures are then stored online, and attendance times are automatically uploaded to Infocare, saving hours of admin.”
The centre will also use the Infocare online enrollment/enquiry system, integrated text messaging system and infocare’s new app for teachers, which will further reduce admin time.
“The focus of management at All About Children is to reduce admin requirements so that teachers and staff can provide children in their care with the best attention possible,” adds Iain. “Infocare allows them to do just that”.
Infocare is the leading childcare management system in New Zealand, providing a true cloud-based solution for childcare management and Ministry of Education reporting. Trusted by thousands for accuracy in funding, innovation, reliability and support, Infocare is New Zealand’s most widely installed student management system.
