Funky Duck Learning is all about finding a way to enjoy learning. Each student has different needs and our mission is to find what sparks the light.

The teacher is a qualified registered primary school teacher with skills in all curriculum learning from year 1 through to year 8, year 9 for literacy as well as SLD teaching experience. I have worked extensively with students who have switched off from learning by working with them using their interests and activities that are fun and achievable.

I am registered with Ngai Tahu for providing sponsored learning for Ngai Tahu tamariki. Engaging students into enjoying their learning is my passion and I’m forever finding activities that I can use to keep the motivation alive.

ABC Kaiapoi is a gorgeous purpose built childcare centre set against the stunning rural backdrop of Kaiapoi. We are a large centre and have ample room for your child to play in a safe and nurturing environment where learning is driven by children’s interests.

Our caring and qualified teachers will nurture and extend your child’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. We have loads of excellent age-specific resources to help your child learn and develop to their full potential. We believe that to effectively guide children into school, both teachers and parents/whānau need to be active participants in the journey. Because of this, we have an Open Door Policy, where we welcome family contributions at any time.

We understand that it can be quite stressful leaving your child in our care for the first time and know that it is important for you to be happy when leaving your children. Therefore we encourage you and your child to visit the centre as many times as you like, until you’re both comfortable.

Visiting the centre gives you the chance to see our teachers working with the children and in turn this is how they will interact with your child. You don’t need to book for a visit, simply drop by or call us for more information.

What makes us different:

  • We have three large playgrounds for children to explore and discover, which are currently being re modelled to include new natural play areas.
  • We have five large classrooms – providing more than required space to extend children’s learning. Which include a separate room for our under ones.
  • Our under two bedroom has full stand-alone cots with a home away from home feel.
  • Low teacher to child ratios
  • Qualified, passionate and experienced staff
  • Bright, clean and well-resourced centre

The Rainbow Early Learning Centre was established in May 2001 to meet the needs of the local community. The Rainbow provides quality education and care programmes and facilities for children from age 6 months until they start school. The inside layout of the Rainbow provides maximum space and excellent visibility which helps to ensure child safety. The outside play areas are designed to give your child a wide range of play experiences in a safe environment.

The Rainbow emphasises Christian values to provide a warm, caring, supportive environment for families/whānau. Each child will receive individual attention and experiences, while at the same time have opportunities to be involved socially within group activities.

A developmentally appropriate programme catering for the needs of your child is provided in a fun loving atmosphere. The Rainbow’s curriculum is based on the Ministry of Education’s Te Whāriki strands and goals, and is taught from a Christian perspective in line with our “Special Character”.

We are fully licensed by the Ministry of Education and we have met their rigorous standards of safety, hygiene, equipment, and quality staff/child ratios.

The Rainbow is administered by the Person to Person Help Trust, a Charitable Trust set up by Kaiapoi Baptist Church. Along with our sister centre, The Ark Early Learning Centre, we provide quality care and education in the Kaiapoi Community.

Dear Future Chef,

Be Inspired, this is my take on Chefs in the “New World of Technology”. It’s the visionary in the kitchen to be on top of one’s game, a leader, coach and empowering guru who keep things in sync. It’s the “Chef”

Whether you aspire to be a Chef in Multi – Michelin Starred Restaurants, Sky Scraper Hotels, Catering and Hospitality establishments, wanting to work in a Cafe or Restaurant or start your own company, this will all be possible with the cutting – edge technology learning programs that will prepare and able you to gain the necessary tools in order to do so. But the reality of it all starts at the very beginning on asking the questions: What now, where and how to get started?

An understanding is that everyone aspires to be a “Star Chef”, in this fast pace, techno and social media wonderful world we live and breathe right now! This ‘new era’ way of being educated online, with International Culinary Studio, would not only be done all on your individual steam and pace, but with the resource’s available within our teaching modules, by only a touch of a button from your media devices.

As an Executive Chef, in my experience, it is the responsibility to inspire, educate and motivate the team. It’s not just about producing the finest food possible, but also the financial and business aspects as to how and what makes it work out in this fast pace industry we all have a passion for.

As a Chef, one day, you will be a master of multi–tasking, split–second decision-making and the humbleness in handling criticism well. You will still wake up with determination and then go to bed with satisfaction!
