Top 5 Centre Benefits

Boutique early childhood centre

New Shoots early childhood centre is a beautiful, boutique home away from home nestled conveniently between Pakuranga, Botany and Highland Park. From the scent of home cooking to the sound of giggling children, our purpose-built centre delights the senses the moment you walk through the door.

Connect with nature

New Shoots Pakuranga is proudly part of Enviroschools – an environment action-based programme with a kaupapa of empowering tamariki to create a healthy, peaceful and sustainable planet through learning and collective action. 

Our community garden encourages hands-on discovery in nature, Māori perspectives, and respect for the diversity of people and culture. Our large outdoor play area gives children plenty of freedom to take the lead and explore in their own unique way.

There are logs to climb and pathways to bike along, but, hands down, our three-tiered sandpit is the favourite! In the great outdoors, toddlers and preschoolers blossom and learn from one another as they connect with Papatūānuku.

Nurturing relationships

Inside, our passionate kaiako believe in the power of play and tailor each room to the needs of our growing tamariki. With infants, we are focused on nurturing relationships as they quite literally find their feet. Older children can join Kelly Sports – fun, weekly group lessons that target gross motor skills. And preschoolers can opt into Forest Kindy, an outdoor exploration programme that transforms children into confident, resilient and independent young people.

Diverse community

Our diverse community is reflected in events we host throughout the year, from Matariki to Chinese New Year to Grandparents’ Day. These special community events bring us together through connection, food and shared cultural experiences.
