ERO Report

The Education Review Office (ERO) is the New Zealand government department that evaluates and reports on the education and care of students in schools and early childhood services. ERO’s reports are used by parents, teachers, early childhood education managers, school principals and trustees, and by government policy makers.

Early childhood services are reviewed on average once every three years. Reviews will be more frequent where the performance of a school or centre is poor and there are risks to the education and safety of the students, or less frequent where a school has a stable reporting history and demonstrates good self-review processes and use of its assessment information.

  • The greatest thing that i can say about Learning Adventures Katikati is that both of my daughters wake up every morning excited to go to "school" as we call it. They both love their teachers, friends and the environment they get to spend their day in. We notice nearly every day that our girls have learnt something new - a new letter, a word, a fact, a skill or a song.

    They are both more socially active also. The teachers are always very welcoming and available to speak to if i have any concerns or want to float an idea past them. Deciding to put our girls into Beachkids was the best decision we have made for children to benefit their learning and social interactions with other children.

  • Our daughter has been attending Beachkids Katikati since 2013 and has absolutely loved it there! From the beginning, we have always felt a part of the Beachkids family.

    We have really enjoyed seeing the transition our child has gone through from a 2 year old to a school ready 4 year old, as well as the many exciting programmes that have been on offer during her time there. We like the central location and the security of the centre.

    The teachers are wonderful and friendly and our child is very well looked after. We love our Beachkids family!! We think they are the BEST!!!

  • My 3yo son has been attending Beach Kids Katikati since August 2016. I was amazed at how quickly he settled in. The staff are simply fantastic! They've been patient, always obliging, nothing's a problem and they really do care! I'm so glad I chose BK (I checked out a few in town) my son absolutely loves going! Thank you all for welcoming us!!

  • My family have been treated nothing but warm and welcomed since we had our very first visit. Claire and Kim have made my 5month old and 17month old feel like they are part of their very own family. Even though both of my two are in the unders room, all of the teachers great both myself and my children as we step through the front gate. The staff are quick to give me a hand getting my kids to the car which is a huge help! 

    My 17month old just loves the outdoors and she is able to play outside as much as her heart contends. I know when she comes home all colourful in paint and sand that she has had a great day! She has advanced so much in her short amount of time, I am simply amazed. 

    I chose Learning Adventures Katikati because of the wonderful feedback and reputation they have. They haven't disappointed! I now travel from out of town just to bring my kids there because of how much we are all happy with the beautiful environment Leigh and Stormie and their team have created.
