Kia Ora,

I’m passionate about providing the very best outcomes for your precious child, while in our care. I really enjoy watching the growth and development of each child, and how they acquire new skills—whether that be taking their first step or mastering a tricky puzzle that they’ve spent a lot of time trying to complete.

What I find so rewarding are those times when I’m out in our community, and I see or hear about tamariki who I have cared for and educated. Knowing that my team and I have played a part in that child’s life and their early development is such a privilege.

This is such an amazing time in your child’s life. And my team and I are honoured to be able to share it with you.

Why Choose Our Centre

Simply put, it’s because we offer outstanding early childhood care and learning. But here are a few other great reasons:

  • Our operational hours allow us to provide flexible options to suit your family’s needs, with full-time and part-time care.
  • Kai is included. We provide high-quality plant-based whole-food meals for tamariki—all cooked on-site and prepared with love.
  • We offer a generous leave policy because we understand the unpredictability of children’s absences.
  • For the 3–5 year old preschooler, we offer a kindergarten-style program from 9am–3pm up to 20 hours a week.
