Our experienced team have a real passion and enthusiasm for making a positive difference in the lives of young children and their whānau through providing a positive and fun environment for the children to explore, learn and play.

We value and recognise children as competent and capable learners and this is reflected in our environment where children are encouraged to develop their independence and build self-confidence.
