Barnardos Early Learning Centre Wellington Central

Wellington Central Early Learning Centre is a bright, stimulating and safe environment in the heart of Wellington where your child will thrive.  

We have our very own vegetable garden in our large, ground floor outdoor area with plenty of natural equipment and resources that will inspire your child. 

Light, bright and airy, our indoor environment is purpose-built to stimulate and develop the natural curiosities of our tamariki. 

We embrace and celebrate the uniqueness of every child that walks through our doors.

Vision Statement

Kakapo Kids is a warm and loving family environment, where children are empowered and respected as they learn and grow.

Family and Community / Whanaungatanga

We value meaningful and collaborative relationships with our families, and strive to support both personal and cultural aspirations for our children.

Children are supported and encouraged to become active members of our local, wider cultural communities.

Respect / Whakaute

At Kakapo Kids, we are inspired by the principles of RIE and Pikler as we practice respectful caregiving.

We see the importance of clearly communicating with children, and treating them as we ourselves would like to be treated.

We place value on learning to respect ourselves, others, and our environment.

Play / Tākaro

Children are empowered through a play-based education programme, where, through their interests, they are encouraged to lead their own learning and exploration.

To support this, we provide children with a wide range of resources that promote imagination, independence and discovery.

Empowerment / Whakamana

We strongly believe that children are extremely capable and competent learners, given the opportunities to initiate and self-direct their own learning. Children are encouraged to participate in and take responsibility for their own care and well-being.
