About Us and Our Programme

Our early childhood education centre is enhanced by its natural setting. We are energetic and enthusiastic; we have a have a passion for teaching, for celebrating creativity and for working alongside the community. This includes everything from offering parental education programmes, and children’s health checks, to creating floats for the Upper Hutt Santa Parade and stalls at the local Neighbours Night.


Whakawhanaungatanga/relationships that empower and recognise the identity of us all play a significant role in our curriculum. From the initial meeting with families we aim to develop a sound relationship with child, parent and whānau.


We place emphasis on your aspirations for your child, your family values and how we can work collaboratively, learning, recognising, sharing and celebrating.




Monday to Friday:  8:30am – 2:30pm



Our curriculum is based on the national early childhood curriculum, Te Whariki and the kaupapa or principles of the ‘Enviroschools’ project. Central to our programme is kaitiakitanga or guardianship of te ao/the world, whaka-ute or respect for each other and all things. We are committed to:

  • Learning together and problem solving

  • Being creative, using our imagination and having fun.
