Working with the team at 4E’s Consulting takes me back to the relationships that I had with fast paced champion companies in another life. As a supplier, I have always considered it an honour to be made to feel part of the team on their exciting journey to success. Formalities are dispensed with as trust to execute tight deadlines are earned.

4E’s Consulting have won my admiration as a team that has drawn on their combined expertise to deliver a professional service meeting a clear need in the market place. Any company that dedicates itself to accessible child development throughout New Zealand, deserves recognition for the value it delivers.

This team guides new childcare centres from blueprints to first enrolment with harrowing deadlines. Investors place their trust in the professionalism of 4E’s to navigate through stringent compliance examination, quality staff recruitment and win the confidence of parents before a cash flow can be realised.

I feel proud that 4E’s Consulting recognise the value of teaming with Hygiene House in its quest to deliver the very high standards that childcare demands.

The process of design was a breeze with Jenny and Libby as they had a well defined brief outlining their requirements and were able to articulate how they wanted the space to look and feel in order to reflect their pedagogy. We were able to take this and turn it into a beautiful built form that brought all their ideas together and the quality of the result is a testament to this. The design has been submitted for the first round of several national design awards and we anticipate it should get some good results. We have worked with Jenny and Libby on designs for a number of new preschools and find their professionalism and commitment to quality second to none.

Phil Smith, Director Colleridge and Smith Architects

It was a pleasure working with Jenny and Libby from Three Trees Learning Centre in Rolleston, Christchurch. It was clear at the concept stage that they had designed a beautiful building, whilst considering the environment that surrounds it, and definitely the supply of resources for their children.
As a supplier of educational resources into the ECE sector, Curiate NZ ensures that the customer is a good fit for their brand, along with the consideration for a good working relationship. It was clear from the beginning that the thought behind the resourcing at Three Trees had been well planned and a good professional relationship had been established. During the communication, of the development of the resource order with Curiate NZ, Jenny and Libby were in regular conversation, ensuring that the resources were well considered and stayed true to their brand, along with the amazing environment that they were offering their children.
Upon the finalising of the agreement to supply the resources, the process was seamless. At the time of delivery to the Three Trees Learning Centre, it was noted that the centre had not been completed (building consent status) to fully allow for the resources to be delivered. When dealing with most other new centres in the same position, the resources would be delayed and deferred, resulting in additional holding costs for both parties. However, with Jenny and Libby, they managed to problem solve this matter internally and the delivery went ahead as planned – a true credit to the management at Three Trees and the team they have established.
I have enjoyed the working relationship that has been established with Jenny and Libby, and would have no reservations working with them again in the future.
