Aroha's Way | A Children's Guide through Emotions Details

At the back of the book, there is a section for parents and/or teachers to explore the tools in more depth.  This section expands on the beautiful poem and opens up conversations with our children.  Asking questions around those emotions to make it easier for children to recognise the emotion, and then a simple way to manage it.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you cannot find the answer to your query below, please contact us.

How can I pay?
We’ve got options!  Shopify payments allows you to use your credit card or Visa debit card.  If you want to pay your order off, you can use Laybuy, Afterpay or Humm.

I'm trying to use my rewards code or discount code at the checkout and it's not working - why not?
A couple of possibilities!  The most common is that there is a value pack in your cart.  Because these are already discounted, rewards vouchers and discount codes aren't valid on these items.  You may also be using another code already (Shopify only allows one code per order), or you perhaps have the code wrong.  If you're not sure, flick us an email and we'll be happy to help you figure it out.

Do you allow pick ups?
Yes we do.  We allow pick ups from our Warehouse at 20C Lake Road, Frankton, Hamilton.  Please select pick up at the checkout and you will receive an email notification when your order is ready for collection, including the pick up hours.  If the hours do not suit, please email us and we will do what we can.  Please note that all pick ups are only during business hours.

What’s your policy around privacy and my details?
Your privacy is incredibly important to us.  We will not disclose or sell your information or anyone … even if they ask really nicely.  Credit card details are not stored anywhere.  You can check out our full privacy policy here.
