Welcome to New Shoots Tauranga – a modern, purpose-built early childhood centre nestled among the city’s main thoroughfare on Cameron Road. Opposite the hospital and close to the city’s downtown core, we offer a convenient location for hospital staff, local workers and out-of-town commuters alike.
Walking into our spacious building is like entering an oasis – delicious smells waft in from the kitchen and calming classrooms are filled with sustainable resources to create a homely feel that puts children at ease.
Centred around a beautiful old rhododendron tree, our outdoor spaces foster exploration and creativity, reflecting the needs and interests of our growing tamariki. Our infant playground is designed to peak our youngest children’s curiosity, while the toddler and preschool area promotes safe discovery of their ever-evolving abilities.
We offer our very own Born to Play sessions – a sport and movement programme that supports children as they hone their physical skills alongside social and emotional competency.
At New Shoots Tauranga, we pride ourselves on forming warm and loving relationships with our tamariki and their whānau. We take an unhurried approach to children’s development, knowing that play-based learning in a homelike environment is where they thrive.
We are proud to be part of Tauranga’s diverse community and give back by collecting toys for the children’s ward at the nearby hospital and spreading joy at the local rest home.
Pop in for a visit and join the family at New Shoots Tauranga children’s centre.
