Manukau Central Kindergarten

Manukau Central kindergarten has been a part of our vibrant, diverse community since 1988. We are central to an established community, some of our children have parents who also attended as children. We have very strong links to Wiri Central School and the majority of our children transition to the school next door.

We place emphasis on establishing and maintaining strong relationships with children and parents/whanau. We welcome parent contributions to our children’s learning with parent help, sharing crafts and skills and shared lunches.

We regularly plan excursions aimed at providing opportunities for children and whanau to experience learning opportunities together, excursions are planned around children’s current learning interests and special events.

Our programme is highly responsive to children’s interests, we are well resourced and children lead their learning through play. Teachers assess learning outcomes with an emphasis on contribution, communication, belonging, well- being and exploration linked with curiosity, trust, perseverance, confidence and responsibility.

Literacy, numeracy and Te Reo are incorporated into most activities throughout the session daily. Children bring a packed lunch and morning tea snack. We encourage children to bring fresh fruit to share for afternoon tea.

Outdoor play does involve water and sand play, teachers consider the weather conditions when planning these activities, we ask that all children carry a complete change of clothes in their bags daily so that we can keep your child warm and dry.

Our teaching team value our relationships with support services that provide assistance in maintaining our children’s health and wellbeing, they include  Plunket, Ministry of Health hearing and vision and Ministry of Education speech-language therapy.

We are extremely proud and excited to announce that we have received a Rito Healthy Heart Award from the Heart Foundation for the amazing things we do to promote healthy food and physical activity. We are helping our tamariki to have healthy habits and healthy hearts for life.

Complete involvement of family

We believe in an open door policy and involve parents and family members in everything we do. Ensuring participation of parents makes the child feel comfortable and has a strong positive impact on the child. Keeping this in mind, we warmly welcome parents to the centre anytime.

The teachers and staff at Blossoms sincerely take care of the child’s happiness and comfort. We regard a three-way relationship between parents, caregivers and the child as an indispensable part of the child’s well-being.

Keeping track of everything

We make sure that parents are well-informed at each step of the way. They are provided with everything they need including newsletters, invoices, receipts and copies of learning stories.

Events and Outings

We believe that interaction and communication is vital. Keeping this in focus, we organize cultural events to help Blossom Educare members interact with other families and children and also with the teachers and staff. We are always on the lookout for such events and they form an integral part of our calendar.

Training for new teachers and volunteers

Volunteers and new teachers are thoroughly screened before getting onboard with us. They are required to meet our standards and adhere to our philosophy. Volunteers interact with the children and keep them engaged. Students of early childhood teacher training courses are properly supervised at the centre.

Facilities for availing subsidy

Our ‘Work and Income’ department operates a subsidy for parents. The subsidy is subject to an income qualification. Further information and forms shall be provided by ‘Work and Income’. Also, Blossoms provides 20 hours subsidy for all children above the age of 3. Please refer to our fees schedule for further information.

Educare Programme

‘Educare’ is a compound word meaning education and care. Our centres deliver educare programmes centered around the child. These programmes involve observing the children on a regular basis, evaluating their needs and concerns and planning activities around them. These programmes help the child develop in their own individual pace.

These programmes are founded on the guiding principles of Te Whāriki, the early childhood curriculum policy of the Ministry of Education. We keep revising our developmental programmes to stay updated.

There are four broad principles at the centre of Te Whāriki – the early childhood curriculum.

  • Empowerment - The early childhood curriculum empowers the child to learn and grow.
  • Holistic Development - The early childhood curriculum reflects the holistic way children learn and grow.
  • Family and Community - The wider world of family and community is an integral part of the early childhood curriculum.
  • Relationships - Children learn through responsive and reciprocal relationships with people, places, and things.

Nga Tamariki Puawai


A warm welcome to Nga Tamariki Pauwai early childhood centre.

Nga Tamariki Puawai has been delivering quality day care for 12 years now, and we love it.

Our unique vision for early childhood education is about laying a foundation for a successful  life. It is more than delivering or sharing of knowledge; our goal is to nurture and develop the latent potential in each beautiful child, equipping them with tools to rise above average and be successful in life. Children are being educated from the time they are born either by design or by default. 

At Nga Tamariki Puawai, we believe in the God-given potential latent in each child and we purposefully develop and encourage that potential.

 To achieve this, our programme philosophy combines an emphasis on quality learning, character education and outstanding care. A major key to our success is our highly motivated staff, these qualified practitioners love children and their craft. Registered teacher ratio is kept high.

When you entrust your child to us, they will marinate in a learning environment that is positive and caring. Everyday will be laced with opportunities to discover new learning, be adventurous, have fun, and enjoy warm relationships.

“The children at Nga Tamariki Puawai are confident, competent and clear communicators who are making their own choices in play and learning. They are shown love and respect by the teachers, who are consistently positive in their interactions. It is very clear that the virtues of care, respect and kindness are valued here. The environment is well resourced and the children have ample opportunity to choose from a wide range of resources and learning experiences. The teachers are engaged with children in different ways and are highly responsive to supporting social development”.
