The Rhyme and Reason kitchen is the hub of our childcare centre because we value the importance of food and nutrition and appreciate the impact we have in establishing healthy eating habits for your child. We know quality food and a full puku contribute to growth, development, and contentment.

At Rhyme and Reason, your child will enjoy delicious whole, unprocessed, healthy snacks, and meals that will put a smile on their face.

New Zealand-grown, locally sourced, seasonal deliciousness is created by our experienced cook using natural, healthy, unprocessed ingredients!

Every meal, every day, is well-balanced, nutrient-dense, and tasty. Not only that, we’ve focused on whole foods and keep a careful eye on our use of additive-free foods to optimise nutrition. Please feel free to ask us for a copy of this week’s delicious menu! 

We encourage all children to be physically active and lead healthy lifestyles. Rhyme and Reason have two lovely large outdoor areas which enable us to offer a wide variety of outdoor activities. Tamariki enjoy growing vegetables, picking fruit from the garden, and helping out with baking in our kitchen. Respect for the environment can be seen in the children’s involvement with gardening. As a newly established centre we are working towards achieving the prestigious Heart Foundation Healthy Heart Award. This award reflects our commitment to providing an environment that promotes a combination of healthy food choices and physical activity.
