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.

  • I would like to say a huge thank you to all the wonderful staff at Clever Kids Early Learning Centre for taking such great care of my children.

    Clever Kids is a fantastic centre with many learning opportunities for children in a great environment. The staff are kind, loving and caring. My children absolutely love it!

    Thanks again.

  • As parents, trust and safety is the utmost importance when leaving our children in care. Our boys have not only formed close bonds with their teachers, but are continuously learning and growing. It is obvious that a lot of effort and thought goes into planning a fun-loving, safe and caring environment for the children. We would like to thank Clever Kids for all the opportunities that you provide on a daily basis and taking such good care of our boys. It is very comforting knowing that they are in good hands.

  • Words cannot express the appreciation and gratitude we have for the Clever Kids team, leaving our 2 boys every morning was like leaving them with family. From day 1 we felt so comfortable knowing our boys were well cared for and loved. They have excelled so much and have learnt so many new things since being in Clever Kids care. We will miss the entire team at Clever Kid, and a massive THANK YOU to all the lovely educators who had both Brooklin and Braxton in their care. We hope to find a Centre like Clever Kids in Melbourne (fingers crossed)!!

  • Our boys have been at Clever Kids since it first opened. Since then we have had one of them head off to school. We were really impressed with their 4 1/2 year old programme, including the lunch box group to teach them how to ration out and open their own lunch. The staff are really lovely and genuinely care about the kids and teaching them skills and topics that relate to their age. I would really recommend this day care.

    Hayley

  • I cannot express how happy I am that my children have spent the last two years at Clever Kids Early Learning Centre. I believe this day care has a well balanced structure. During the day the kids have the opportunity to learn different things with the guidance of their fantastic teachers and on their own. Learning about different topics, various activities, outdoor/messy play, mat times and music times create a positive and fun learning environment for the kids. I can't thank the teachers enough for always providing their ongoing love, care and full support. Thank you for making a difference.

    Amanda

  • I wanted to take the opportunity to commend the past and present teachers of Clever Kids. Thank you for creating a welcoming, loving and caring environment where our children are feeling safe and happy to spend many hours each day. As you are aware Jake loved his time at Clever Kids. Jake has flourished at school from the very beginning, and I totally believe that as teachers, you have all played a significant role with your guidance and support including all the school preparation.
