Seashells acknowledges that there will be different enrolment requirements within the Doubtless Bay community, therefore our enrolment choices are flexible and at the same time work within our programme requirements.

As our learning programme operates continuously all day (we are open 8.00am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday) to allow for both full time and part children to be fully involved. It is advisable that you enrol your child/tamariki for a minimum of two days a week but preferably longer, to enable your child/tamariki to experience the different activities on offer over the week. Each of the activities are designed to maximise your tamariki/child’s learning and development potential, so consistency is the key to your tamariki/child’s learning.

Lunch is between 12.00 and 1.00pm daily and is provided by Seashells for children requiring lunch.
