We provide a fun and nurturing environment, where your child receives meaningful care, as well as personalised learning and development. Your child will love our separate Nursery, Toddler and Preschool areas, all well laid out for fun and learning at every age and stage, including a family play area, an art area, as well as a quiet space for reading and reflection.
Our environments provide endless opportunities to explore the natural environment. We promote the development of active and confident learners who think, question, seek information and apply knowledge to the best of their ability. We are a committed and dedicated team with a shared vision for creating a nurturing, safe, creative, and happy environment for our tamariki and centre whānau to be a part of.
We promote a genuine appreciation for diversity and cultivate an environment of mutual respect. Embracing every child's cultural celebration is a powerful way to promote inclusivity, respect, and understanding. By providing opportunities for learning about different cultures, we encourage a sense of curiosity and respect from an early age. We welcome our new centre whānau to share their culture with us so we can include it in our celebrations!
We value that each child learns at their own pace and when they are ready, and that play is children’s work.
Across morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, our Nourish menu provides foods that are minimally processed, avoiding recipes that are high in added sugar, instead using fresh, real and wholesome ingredients. Children are provided with well-balanced meals from the four main food groups (breads and cereals, milk and milk products, fruit and vegetables, lean meat and meat alternatives.
Our Nursery environment for ages 0-2 Years is based on building loving and trusting bonds between infants and kaiako, who structure the day according to individual needs. Kaiako work closely with whānau to understand our infant’s cues and develop a routine that supports children’s natural rhythms.
Our Toddler space, ages 2-3 years is designed to help our tamariki balance the desire to be independent with the need to be nurtured and cared for. This age group are ready to explore their sense of self whilst still needing more care than the older tamariki, therefore we have a focus on emerging social skills and independence.
The preschool room is designed for ages 3-6 years and offers opportunities throughout the day for tamariki to be involved in contributing to the curriculum by helping to make decisions about what is set up and sharing their ideas. Kaiako work alongside the tamariki to set up an environment which is challenging, provides curiosity and active exploration.
"Staff are very welcoming and extremely caring with individualized focused on each child. It is a good feeling to know that my child is well looked after, hence I have a high level of trust with the teachers involved in my child's life"
Not one to be overlooked. If you want your child to be in a loving environment where they will be enriched with culture this is the place for you. My two year old loves going to school, he loves the outdoor space, arts and crafts, food... We are also very thankful that this centre offers flexibility on hours, something that is is very rare to find, however almost essential in todays work force. Thank you very much!
My daughter has been going to this daycare for over 4 years - from the baby’s room right through to preschool.
The teachers are all lovely and very caring for the children. There is a big focus on inclusivity and belonging.
There are celebrations for all cultural days celebrating the heritage of all of the cultures with food, dance and lots of fun for the children. My daughter is half Dutch and they even introduced a Dutch day to celebrate the culture!
Healthy meals are on offer. They offer wonderful activities with the children including caring for their vegetable garden and worm farm. Have a look at the Facebook page to get a feel for a typical day for the kids.
