Kia Ora. Welcome to All About Children Childcare, Titahi Bay

Aesthetically beautiful childcare centre and designed to support the development of our curious inhabitants, ours is a much-loved childcare centre that has been a part of the Titahi Bay community for more than 22 years (we were previously called Bronwyn’s Place). Our Titahi Bay child care centre open late from 7am to 6pm, we care for children from birth to 5 years.

We take a holistic approach to childcare learning and take children amidst nature as they develop a lifelong love for learning. They’ll climb trees, go for nature walks, jump in puddles … just be kids. Happy kids!

The Titahi Bay difference

Our Titahi Bay Childcare centre offers a loving, warm and stimulating place for your child to grow. But most importantly we offer them an opportunity to learn from nature – just like the good old days. Our day care classrooms come without walls and discovery extends much beyond a fenced small backyard – it takes your child (even babies) into the real backyard – the bush, sea and parks.

We take learning outside the walls and boundary of our childcare centre and into the beautiful natural surroundings of Titahi Bay, Porirua. Your child will climb trees, jump in puddles, look for sea shells … learning while having fun leaves them with a lifetime of memories and strong foundation for all future education. Our unique nature-based early childhood programme is delivered by experienced childcare teachers in partnership with parents and whanau.

Our curriculum emerges from your child’s interests and unfolds and changes each day. As teachers we provide the resources, time, space and support for your child to explore, experiment and try things out. A lot of what we do extends beyond the boundaries of our centre through nature walks and outings – something that sets us apart from others.

Titahi Bay Kindergarten

Our kindergarten takes a place-based approach to learning, strengthening our connection to the land, people and stories of this area.     

We overlook te Mana o Kupe ki Aotearoa (Mana Island) Te Waipounamu/(South Island) and te maunga Whitireia  - significant landmarks for Ngati Toa Rangatira, the  mana whenua.       

Our programme includes hikoi ki te hapori (community walks) and we maintain strong connections with our local schools.      

Kaiako support tamariki to explore their interests, to take risks, and to see themselves as capable.    

We invite whanau to participate and share in our hapori ako (learning community).  Whanau aspirations are important to us.

Titahi Bay Playcentre

Our tamariki are supported to become confident, competent self-directed learners through play based around their interests. They gain knowledge through play, participation and positive guidance. 

Our children’s curiosity and creativity is nurtured through the fun range of experiences provided … no two days at Playcentre are the same. 

Our children develop nurturing and social skills which have lifelong benefits. Siblings attend together, allowing older children to mentor younger children and practise empathy and caring. 

Our whānau is truly multicultural with Māori and Pakeha, Samoan, Cook Island Māori, Filipino, Indian, French and Brazilian members, to name just some. 

Our parental relationships developed through Playcentre provide support from parents and help them develop new parenting and life skills. 

Our parents are actively involved in providing our children’s learning programmes. The high adult to child ratio allows a good balance for group and individual support during each session. 

Respect and a common focus enables us to move forward with the centre’s goals and aspirations. We are situated in the grounds of one of the four primary schools here in Titahi Bay and enjoy strong relationships with them all. This allows us to easily arrange visits for those children who are close to school age; share activities such as shows etc and acclimatise children to primary school routines. 

There is no other organisation for early childhood education and family development quite like it in the world. Thousands of kiwi children, and their parents too, have grown up with Playcentre … pop in for your three visits today (no need to book) and come and join the fun.

Te Kōhanga Reo o Tītahi Bay

Te Kōhanga Reo

The kōhanga reo movement is a unique initiative based on total immersion in Māori language and values with the aim of passing on Māori culture to future generations.

Kōhanga reo emphasise the revitalisation of the culture through te reo Māori and are dependent on the active participation of the whole whānau. The kaupapa of kōhanga reo aims to strengthen whānau capabilities in cultural, social, economic, spiritual and political matters. Education, health and wellbeing are inherent within all aspects of the kaupapa. The prime focus is the whānau – its collective development, growth, accountability and wellbeing set within a Māori cultural context.

Kōhanga reo do not regard tamariki in isolation, but as important members of the whānau. The kōhanga reo philosophy is that tamariki will benefit when whānau successfully operate according to the kaupapa. Tamariki are an integral part of whānau development.

The following key goals are the foundation of te kōhanga reo kaupapa established in 1982:

  • total immersion in te reo Māori me ōna tikanga in daily operations
  • whānau decision-making, management and responsibility
  • accountability
  • health and wellbeing of mokopuna and whānau.

The key goals of te kōhanga reo assure that there will be:

  • security in te reo Māori
  • a supportive, caring environment for mokopuna
  • whānau (collective) sharing of responsibilities, knowledge and expertise
  • greater respect and appreciation of each other.
