Awhi childminding at Flourish

A childminding service created to tautoko, support the wellbeing of our Flourish parenting community.


Awhi is available during our Te Māma Wellbeing session on Tuesday Morning 9am – 11am and Wednesday lunchtime 12pm – 2pm. This is offered to support our parents to be able to come along to the wellbeing sessions.

Check out our calendar of events here


At Awhi, we follow the needs of you and your child. Please be open to your child still requiring your presence, especially for the first few, (or many) experiences with us. At Awhi we do our best to follow the requests of your whānau.

Bookings will always be on a weekly basis. Confirmation is given in order of the booking. We advise booking as early as you can, so as to not miss out as there are limited spaces.


While the wellbeing session are FREE we do hope you can support us with the cost of running the Awhi chidminding sessions.

Awhi now has 2 options to show your appreciation for the beautiful care you and your child will receive from the Awhi childminding space.

  • 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

Payment Options

A special ‘Give a Little’ page has been created JUST FOR AWHI, within our Flourish page. Donating through this site, means you will receive a tax receipt issued in the name of givealittle, allowing you to claim some of your donation back at tax time.

You are of course also welcome to continue paying online, or with cash also. 

We know you will give what you can, when you can.
