Awhi childminding has some payment options:

Flourish provides an option for onsite childminding in the Awhi space (at the other end of the room – children can come and go to their parents should they need them).

  • Option 1– Pay as you go – $15 per session (an additional $5 per child from the same whānau). 
  • Option 2 –  Pay up-front in advance. We invite you to pay what you can currently afford at the beginning of the term. The expectation is that you will pay on a sliding scale from $60 to $240 for one child or $80 to $320 for two children
