At Busy Bees Te Rapa, we value every child and see them as unique and a special taonga. Our Teachers are passionate about encouraging children's creativity, supporting their emerging social interactions, and celebrating their individual successes. Our centre caters for tamariki up to six and we are open from 7.30am-5.30pm, Monday to Friday. Conveniently located in the heart of Hamilton City, we're easy to find and within a short traveling distance to Te Rapa Racecourse. We're the natural choice for busy parents and local families in the community.

Our centre welcomes tamariki and their whānau, supporting children to develop into capable learners with a strong cultural identity. Qualified teachers bring a wealth of knowledge and experienceproviding quality education in a stimulating environment. We welcome your child to our community and look forward to helping them start their education journey. We would love to see you.

Our inhouse cook provides freshly made meals for children each day using our Nourish menus and recipes, based on the New Zealand Heart Foundation Tohu Manawa Ora | Healthy Heart Award for Early Learning Centres. We believe that through nourishing food, children are fueled to thrive physically and mentally, whilst enjoying the benefits of coming together and connecting as a group at mealtimes. 

Teachers also do regular baking with the children, 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. 

Our local curriculum incorporates learning dispositions, the principles and goals of our ECE curriculum Te Whāriki, and competencies derived from Tataiako. Our innovative learning environments are abundantly resourced with stimulating educational resources which complements the delivery of our local curriculum and educational programme. Our teachers are passionate about encouraging children's creativity, supporting their emerging social interactions, and celebrating their individual successes.
