Kindercare in Howick takes cloths. It seems to be different at each branch whether they take cloths or not, maybe depends on whether staff can be bothered.

I looked at 6 daycare centres in Royal Oak/ Greenlane today and 4 of them supported cloth naps. One teacher looked at me like I was mad when I asked the question and I decide we would not be using THAT one! :shock:

NZ Child Restraints

I used to work at a childcare centre that did only disposable nappies.

They frowned upon cloth (retards). But I would have changed a child in cloth.

Time is only an excuse. It is good bonding and one to one time when changing their nappies.

These children also had nappy rash often, and were changed 4-5 times during the day. I hated it.

Sadly I've not worked at any centre where a child has cloth..
I know mine will be in cloth even if they are in day care.

My oldest DD went to Unitec Early Learning Center and they were happy to do cloth - even the plain old squares and pins taht I used with her. I had to provide a bucket which they lined with a plastic bag and at the end of teh day they just took the bag out and sent it home.

At the time she was the only one there in cloth.

Krafty Kids out in West Auckland is fine with mine in AIOs. It happened by accident really. I used to change my little one into a disposable before she went (I still have them around, just in case I have a bad laundry day!!!) but one day I forgot and sent her in a reusable. All the ladies were rather surprised at the new reusable nappies and we had a big chat about the different ones I had. Now they are fine - they just pop the nappies in a plastic bag for me to wash, if they are really yucky they pop them in a rinse cycle - I provide disposables for them as well to keep there for just in case but all is going well.

I've started Alex at Kids Matter 2 Us, the daycare/creche at the Salvation Army Faith Factory in Henderson. They're quite happy to use cloth, so far Alex is the only one in cloth, and I send her along with AIOs or (pre-stuffed) pockets. I think they were a bit dubious until they realised how easy it was.

Olive Shoots at BCNZ in henderson are happy to use cloth

i'm so happy, cause when nate was in the under 2s they weren't keen, and i wasn't keen to push it (we were having lots of poo leak issues too) but i have put zach on the waiting list and so popped into the under 2s when i was dropping nate off, and saw a baby with a HUGE bum. I asked if she was wearing cloth and they said yes and that they're fine with that

so , woohooooo! :D


(not that i'm sure zach is actually going to end up going, but good to know he can stay in cloth if he does)

Preschool Irene's on Surrey Cres in Grey Lynn have been good about my boy wearing cloth. I have to supply nappy liners, so they can throw away poop and smelly nappy bags. But that's a small price to pay for having him in cloth at day care.

The centre that my 2yo DS goes too looked at me really funny when I asked if I could bring him in cloth...... :cry: They supply the nappies at the centre but wouldnt even take his cloth off at change time and put it in a bag....mite actually go to the boss and ask her!
Surely its not that much of a hassle!
When I am looking for a home based carer for my youngest next year I will have to make sure they support cloth too! Hopefully by then my 2yo who will be 3 wont need his cloth anymore!

princes st community childcare in town opposite the uni are happy to use cloth - no sideways glances or anything......there are other kids there that use them as well!

I think it would suck to have to use disposables at daycare just cos they dont want to - its less rubbish for them!
