Under 2’s

Pukeko and Kereru Room

In both rooms we have small group numbers and high child – teacher ratios. Children have a specific primary caregiver who they develop a strong bond with. Our teachers are attentive and skilled in understanding and responding to your child’s individual needs and cues.

As a team we believe in a respectful, calm and nurturing approach to care to ensure your child has the best start in developing essential life skills.
