Top 5 Centre Benefits

Welcome to Bay of Islands

Found on the main road into town, our eye-catching early childhood centre is easy to spot and access for many Bay of Islands families. Our architecturally designed centre reflects the local culture and blurs the boundaries between indoors and out.

Inspire creativity

Taking advantage of the winterless North’s climate, our spacious outdoor area gives children endless hours to discover nature, challenge themselves through outdoor play, and learn to love our planet. Out here, tamariki can run, climb, splash, and play to their heart’s content.

In the middle of our purpose-built childcare centre you’ll find a big, beautiful pohutakawa, with all the pods facing this striking tree. Each room features an abundance of sunlight, excellent ventilation and a home-like aesthetic.

Our sustainable resources and countless opportunities for open-ended exploration inspire creativity, curiosity and self-discovery.

Watch your children blossom

Supported by warm and responsive kaiako, this is a safe and nurturing space where your children will develop from curious infants, to confident toddlers, to independent preschoolers. Watch your children grow, learn and thrive right before your eyes.

Beautiful & bespoke

This beautiful, bespoke childcare centre is about more than early childhood education. We also offer a dedicated space for our local community where people can gather right here in the heart of town, strengthening support networks. 

Head into New Shoots Kerikeri for a visit – we look forward to meeting you and your whānau.
