Vision and Values


We care

The dedicated and qualified team at New Shoots is committed to making a positive impact on our tamariki, our local community and the world around us. We care about family, whānau, our environment and your children, keeping what’s important at the heart of everything we do.

We’re driven by integrity, honesty and respect. We believe in sustainability and respect for our planet, with every New Shoots centre purpose built to reflect our vision for a better, more balanced approach to how we impact the environment.

Learning at New Shoots is through play-based theory, with a curriculum that encompasses a range of educationally holistic practices and research within a New Zealand context.

Our passionate staff are well supported in every way to build relationships with tamariki and whānau and provide quality care, understanding and encouragement. We believe in innovation, imagination and constantly improving our centres and training our staff to provide you and yours with a fun, exciting place to grow and learn.


You’re at the heart of what we do


Our Centres

You’re at the heart of what we do, which is why every New Shoots childcare centre is sustainably run. This means your child enjoys an environmentally-conscious, happy place where everyone cares about their community and the world we live in.

We’ve carefully designed every one of our centres in Auckland, Waikato and the Bay of Plenty to create a balanced, appealing space that perfectly suits the needs of the children and teachers, encourages imagination and play and reflects your community. We strive to use sustainable design and build practices and to source our resources ethically.

This magical mix of place, play and people helps your children enjoy every learning moment.

We’d love to get to know you and your family. Come in for a chat and a play and get a feel for what we do
