Top 5 Centre Benefits

The heart of the North Shore​

In the heart of Auckland’s North Shore lives New Shoots Hillcrest – conveniently located close to the popular family-orientated suburbs of Birkenhead, Glenfield, Northcote and Takapuna, and the business hub of Wairau Valley. A repurposed architecturally designed building, sustainably transformed into an early childhood centre that blends old and new, brick and steel, curiosity and comfort. The fascination of this centre begins at its core, the internal courtyard.

Handpicked & natural resources

Floor-to-ceiling glass roller doors bring light inside, where beautiful archways are the perfect backdrop for our custom-designed furniture and diverse range of hand-selected natural resources. Complete with comfy couches, cosy rugs and high-quality light fittings, our home-like aesthetic will put your children at ease.

Inspired by nature

Completely enclosed and generous in size, it is the perfect place for outdoor play, open-ended exploration and self-discovery. Our large, bright and airy rooms all flow out onto this courtyard, giving tamariki of different ages the chance to interact, learn and grow together.

A place that feels right

Inside and out, New Shoots Hillcrest is a place where children’s imagination is fostered, uninterrupted play is encouraged, and a lifelong love of learning begins.

If you are looking for your child’s home away from home on the North Shore, say hello to New Shoots Hillcrest.
