Hand in Hand: Learning and Growing


We are a high quality non-profit early childhood centre surrounded by a beautiful semi-rural setting.  We receive quality funding from the Ministry of Education meaning we have low child to teacher ratios and a high proportion of fully qualified and registered teachers, well above ministry requirements.  We have a flexible pricing structure only charging you for the hours that you have booked, we also offer 20 Hours ECE for our 3 and 4 year olds. 



You and your children are the most important members of our Centre. We plan our programme and run our day to day activities  with your child’s needs  and interests as our first priority. It is important to us that your child is happy, safe and secure and  we build up positive relationships with your children, our families and whãnau. 

We provide high quality education and  we work very close  with our families and whānau to provide learning experiences that are meaningful and focused on each child’s individual interests and strengths.

We welcome your enquiry.  We have an open door policy. We encourage you to come and look around our facilities and talk with us about our programme.  Our under 2's use a primary caregiving approach and follow a freedom of movement policy please come and talk to us about this.
