Welcome to Busy Bees Putāruru

Busy Bees Putāruru provides excellent care and education for children 0-6 years within our local community.  We strive to create an environment where our tamariki and whānau feel a sense of belonging, and everyone feels welcome.  We are so grateful for the spacious indoor and outdoor spaces, which keep our tamariki active and engaged. We are committed to providing excellent education and care service, and endeavour to promote the development and learning of each child, through positive partnership and open communication at all times for family, tangata whenua, whānau, and community.  

Natural Resources at Busy Bees Putaruru

At Busy Bees Putāruru, we see children as unique individuals. Our passionate kaiako (teachers) work closely with each age and stage in dedicated environments suited to each age group. Our competent teachers in the Kakano room, provide plenty of aroha and awhi, in a nurturing and loving environment for under 2's.  Our curious 2 year olds have a spacious warm indoor environment to explore, and our outdoor area for over 2's allows plenty of active space for children to play, ride bikes and explore papatuanuku.  We promote this through our curriculum at every opportunity and we welcome whānau in our community to come and look through our beautiful grounds.

Our beautiful, spacious indoor and outdoor areas, provide the perfect environment for our tamariki to be children, to run, bike ride, laugh and play.  You'll often hear laughing, singing and happy giggles when you arrive at our centre as children enjoy being busy throughout the centre.

Our in-house chef supply a wide variety of nourishing meals for the children at our centre, providing foods that are minimally processed, avoiding recipes that are high in added sugar, instead using fresh, real and wholesome ingredients. 

We do baking with the children from time to time, which provides them opportunities to engage and learn a range of food preparations skills and fine motor movements such as pouring, sifting, spooning. It is a great hands on sensory experience for children to develop independence through self-help skills, practice simple maths as they measure and count quantities. 

We are committed to follow the aspirations of the New Zealand National ECE Curiculum, Te Whāriki. Te Whāriki envisages kaiako in early learning settings working in partnership with parents, whānau and community to realise this vision. The expectation is that, in their early years, children will experience a curriculum that empowers them as lifelong learners.
