The little centre
with the big Heart
We are a family orientated centre, which has no more than 37 children at any one time.
Our children have chances throughout the day to interact with each other from their two age defined rooms.
The babies learn from the older children (tuakana-teina), and the older children enjoy knowing the younger ones are following their lead…..just like being in a large family.

We treat the care routines as learning experiences, fostering the children’s independence as they learn and grow.
We have a very spacious indoor area which we currently have divided into two areas – one for under 2s (Pipi) and one for over 2s (Paua).
We have plenty of resources for the children’s age and developmental stages, with the resources available on the shelves for them to choose from, being rotated on a regular basis.
Our lovely sunny outdoor area is also divided into two areas – one each for the Pipi and Paua, with sandpits, and climbing frames; resources, activities and experiences are rotated, and changed around, aligning with the children’s current interests.
We offer age/developmentally appropriate activities and experiences throughout the day, following the childrens’ interests.
We use Edcua to provide online Porfolios to share snapshots of your child’s fun learning day with you, and we also print these as the children enjoy looking at their pictures, and being able to show you.
