Moko Club is open to all families. Come in anytime and meet our teachers and the team.

On enrolment, parents/caregivers will be asked to complete an enrolment form, which will include information of parent/caregiver details, emergency contacts, medical details, collection of children, attestation statements, and fee payments, etc. An information booklet on Moko Club's operations and relevant information will be given to all new families.
On arrival, all new whānau will be welcomed, shown around, and introduced to our teachers and the team.
New whānau are encouraged to make a number of transition visits to Moko Club before the child officially starts with us. Ideally, these visits will be at different times of the day and include a meal and sleep (if the child still sleeps during the day). Whānau are welcome and encouraged to visit at any time of the day.
The hours that we operate are 8.30 am to 4:45 pm. A half-day is from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm or 12:30 pm to 4.30 pm.
Due to government funding, we need children to be booked in for a minimum of four hours for a morning or afternoon session.
When you enrol your child at The Moko Club Huntly, we will work with you to book days and times that suit you to the best of our ability. Spaces are subject to availability, but we will do our best to accommodate you or add you to a waitlist.
To enable your child to form relationships with their teachers and other children, and to help them develop a sense of belonging, we have a minimum booking requirement of two half days a week (4.5 hours or more per day).
Siblings of enrolled children are offered first preference of available vacancies as this helps promote our family environment and assist parents with the care of their children.
If you need to change your booking at any time, please consult with our management team.
Our centres are staffed according to our scheduled bookings. For this reason, it's important that you contact us as soon as possible if your child won't be attending their pre-booked session or if you need a booking change. Please also contact us if you are running late for drop off or pick up.
If your child is going to be absent due to illness, please endeavour to contact us before 7.45am that day or sooner if possible.
Any permanent changes in bookings need to be approved and recorded on an amendment form, signed and attached to your enrolment agreement.
We require a minimum of two weeks’ notice if you are intending to withdraw your child form The Moko Club. This allows us to invite another child to fill the time slot you're vacating.
It is important that you feel comfortable leaving your child in our care and they get used to the centre and the staff. This is why pre-visits are essential. We encourage a minimum of three pre-visits before your child starts with us. You are welcome to do more if required.
For the first couple of visits you'll stay the whole time, and as you child starts to settle you'll leave for a short time to get them used to being there without you.
We recommend you come for a morning, lunch and afternoon session to enable your child to become familiar with the routines of the day.
All children take different lengths of time to settle into daycare life. Try to be consistent with your approach and feel free to discuss anything with us that may assist your child's settling in process.
Centre policies and procedures can be found in the Centre office. We review our policies bi-annually and notify parents of any changes. Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions around policies and procedures.
Some families are entitled to receive a WINZ Subsidy for childcare fees. You can collect the necessary paperwork to apply for your WINZ Subsidy from our Centre Manager and discuss any questions you may have.
20 hours FREE funding reduces cost barriers so that more children can benefit from participation in ECE
Every child aged 3, 4 and 5 in New Zealand is entitled to 20 ECE hours FREE. Entitlement is 20 hours per week, to a maximum of 6 hours per day. We are closed on Public Holidays. No Fees apply for the time we are closed for two weeks over the Christmas and New Year’s break. You are entitled to book one free week and one-half price week for holidays for each annual anniversary year from the start of your child’s enrolment date. Please note that you cannot bank holiday discount from year-to-year and this cannot be taken within the first three months after enrolment. Fees must be paid up to date. Please give two weeks’ notice to administration if you child will be on holiday - your child must be absent for the whole period taken as holiday. A late fee of $15 per 30 minutes will be endorsed for those who are continuously picking up late without informing the centre.
