Kia ora, We are a boutique centre for children 2 and over. We are inspired by the belief that we are helping build the foundational skills for a happy life. We know children are natural learners who learn through play. Through play our dedicated professional teachers work alongside your child to build knowledge together. We focus on real learning that will build the foundations for success in everything your child does in the future. Children’s positive dispositions such as perseverance, determination, curiosity, confidence,and kindness will be nurtured in our quality home like environment where the children feel safe and secure.
We are located in a wonderful villa in Tikipunga catering for the local families and wider Whangarei. We are open 7:30am until 4:30pm. We offer full days, half day and part day sessions as well as 20 hours and some limited 30 hours free for children 3 and over. Talk to the team about possible WINZ help as well.
Our play space is free and flexible allowing children’s creativity to flourish while understanding the rules and boundaries of respectful social interactions.
Our daily routine is structured in a way to suit the different age groups. We focus on Tuakana–teina where the older children are role models and experts for the younger children. This builds leadership qualities in our children and teaches respectful interactions and kindness. We go on regular trips to the bush twice a week to further our interests and love of the environment. This is a big hit with the children
