Montessori Beginnings Early Childhood Education Centre

Montessori Beginnings Preschool is a centre where children feel safe, loved, and empowered on their own individual learning journey.

Situated in a quiet residential street in the heart of Stanmore Bay, Whangaparāoa, Montessori Beginnings offers boutique, research-backed education for children aged two to six.

We believe in creating an environment where children can build their confidence, curiosity, and ability to focus and learn. Our small numbers and dedicated staff mean our centre has a warm, whānau-centred vibe, and children are empowered to discover and unlock their own unique potential.

Our preschool is a warm, happy environment where children can get stuck into the most important work of all, which we believe is play. Families choose Montessori Beginnings because they are looking for a small, caring centre where their child will be seen, noticed, and cherished.

Above all, the centre is designed with the hau ora (holistic wellbeing) of children in mind. It is an unhurried place, where children can relax, connect with others, and settle in to work and play.

A cornerstone of the Montessori educational philosophy is observing and noticing the traits, interests, and personality of each individual child, so that they can be encouraged and supported to take the next step in their learning – whatever that step may be. Our incredible teaching team are passionate about making those connections with children and taking time to discover the ideas and potential each child has.

Pukeko Early Learning Centre

Enrolment Promo - First 2 Months fees - FREE

Here at Pukeko ELC we provide a home away from home for children aged from three month’s to school age.

We ensure a safe, caring, respectful, fun, and natural environment with excellent qualified staff ratios.

Our aim is to nurture happy, confident, and curious learners and to install a life long love of learning within them.

Our Philosophy

At Pukeko ELC we are inspired and influenced by the Reggio Emilia and RIE approach. We believe it is important for Tamariki and their whanau to feel welcomed and develop a sense of belonging and Aroha through open and regular communication. Kaiako acknowledge and respect parent's aspirations for their child, and value community contributions to the planning and curriculum.

We strive to provide a nurturing, respectful, and caring environment rich in open-ended and intelligent resources. As part of our sustainable journey, we aim to be more eco-conscious and encourage children to build an appreciation for nature and papatūānuku. Our learning environment is intentionally designed to create a sense of wonder and curiosity so that Tamariki can be challenged, develop dispositions, problem-solve, and become capable and confident learners.

Our curriculum incorporates bicultural and multicultural experiences which acknowledge the partnership of Te Tiriti O Waitangi and values the unique place of Māori as tangata whenua of Aotearoa New Zealand. Te Reo and Tikanga are respectfully interwoven through our curriculum.

Learning is ignited for Tamariki when their interests are captured, supported, enhanced, and co-constructed by Kaiako who listen and follow each child's developmental needs. Kaiako respect that each child is unique and has the right to be an individual or to be a valued participant of a group.

At Pukeko ELC, we see all Tamariki as a taonga and want them to reach their fullest potential while developing a lifelong love for learning.

Coast Kids on Karepiro

We are a family orientated centre, which has no more than 37 children at any one time. 

Our children have chances throughout the day to interact with each other from their two age defined rooms. The babies learn from the older children (tuakana-teina), and the older children enjoy knowing the younger ones are following their lead…..just like being in a large family. We treat the care routines as learning experiences, fostering the children’s independence as they learn and grow. 

We have a very spacious indoor area which we currently have divided into two areas – one for under 2s (Pipi) and one for over 2s (Paua). We have plenty of resources for the children’s age and developmental stages, with the resources available on the shelves for them to choose from, being rotated on a regular basis. Our lovely sunny outdoor area is also divided into two areas – one each for the Pipi and Paua, with sandpits, and climbing frames; resources, activities and experiences are rotated, and changed around, aligning with the children’s current interests. 

We offer age/developmentally appropriate activities and experiences throughout the day, following the childrens’ interests. 

We use Educa to provide online Portfolios to share snapshots of your child’s fun learning day with you, and we also print these as the children enjoy looking at their pictures, and being able to show you.

Small Sprouts Early Learning

Small Sprouts is a purpose-built Early Learning Centre with an abundance of outdoor space to explore located in the heart of the Hibiscus Coast.

We endeavour to give children the very best start in life, while offering parents/whānau peace of mind that their children are experiencing quality care with a vibrant, qualified teaching team.

We perceive the environment as a third teacher, empowering children to learn through their play in a natural and unhurried way, as the holistic development of each child is encouraged.

Our family-owned centre values working in partnership with our whānau as we strive to create a nurturing, fun, loving and challenging environment for our tamariki.
