Eden Early Learning

We are a local family owned centre based in Tahunanui, Nelson. The sunshine capital of New Zealand. 

Here at Eden Early Learning we are a family owned and family focused centre. Providing care and education for children 6 months to 5 years. The heart of our philosophy is to create a sense of tūrangawaewae (belonging) and respect for all, within our Eden community.

Here at Eden our tamariki are invited to participate in a nurturing, authentic-rich learning environment where we can flourish together.

Trish and Holly (mother and daughter team-extraordinaire) are the managers and directors of Eden Early Learning. Between them they have over 39 years of experience working with children.

They understand the importance of creating a safe, friendly and whanau-orientated environment. This is instilled in everything they do to ensure that each child is able to enjoy their time at Eden Early Learning.

With both Trish and Holly being parents they understand the important role parents play in their child’s lives and they value what parents share with them – in fact it is encouraged. This enables parents to have influence over decisions being made around their child’s learning.

Fulfil the needs of our children and tomorrow they stand strong

Our large outdoor environments enable us to offer a wide range of activities for children to develop their physical skills and confidence; this has a direct correlation to brain development and their academic learning.

To enhance what we already have in our own backyard we access Burrell Park to run Physical Fun sessions.

Flexible, moveable equipment ensures we provide appropriate physical challenges for children from the day they start kindergarten to the day they leave.

We underpin our programme with clear and positive expectations that help develop social competence in children.

During their time at kindergart

In Harakeke​ we are using the language of 'Habits of Mind' to grow your child's image of themselves as a learner, their understanding of how they learn, and to challenge them to experience new ways of learning.en, children build positive relationships with each other and are encouraged to consider others in their play.

Paula's Tiny Tots Tahunanui

We are passionate about paying attention to your childs needs.

So at Paula's Tiny Tots we've kept things small - from the class size to the furniture, our custom-designed indoor and outdoor play areas and our warm and nurturing teachers provide just the right amount of challenge and support for your growing baby or toddler.

We have created a homely environment where families feel welcome and comfortable, and children are relaxed and calm.

The teachers are warm, empathetic and nurturing. All permanent staff are either qualified early childhood teachers or are teachers in training.

The outdoor area has been constructed to allow for children to freely move about and explore.  Our numerous resources and lots of space indoors allow for young minds to develop and grow at their own pace. Our huge back year is used all year round for exploring and play. There is no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing! (Waterproof pants are available to purchase).
