Top 5 Centre Benefits

Waikato feel

Conveniently located in the heart of Matamata, New Shoots caters to the rural and farming families who make up this close-knit community. Generous in size and beautifully modern, your tamariki will feel at home in our bespoke early childhood centre.

Our architect was inspired to design a stunning space with a distinct Waikato feel. The building’s striking gabled roof invites families into our spacious rooms which unfold onto gorgeous gardens beyond.

Little village

Designed for all-weather play with decks and sheltered spaces, a generous playground and an abundance of natural materials, we view our outdoor space as a little village. Children can move at their own pace, siblings can interact, and infants, toddlers and preschoolers can learn from one another.

Confidence & resilience

Local themes of hunting and farming run deep in our centre and there are endless opportunities to learn through genuine play and self-discovery. We encourage exploration – it’s the foundation needed to develop problem solving and perseverance, confidence and resilience.

Nurturing & teaching

Here, nurturing and teaching are one and the same and relationships are at the core of everything we do. Many of our teachers grew up in Matamata and we foster connections to our local community through rest home visits, parents’ nights, and our Christmas parade float.

If you’re a Waikato family searching for an early childhood centre that feels like home, pop into New Shoots Matamata today.
