Top 5 Centre Benefits

The journey begins here

In the heart of Papamoa thriving coastal community, you’ll find New Shoots’ very first early childhood centre. Built on a generous piece of land, this was the perfect spot to start our now nationwide movement of creating spaces where children and families grow together.

Beach inspired

Made up of two architecturally designed buildings – one curated for infants and toddlers, the other for preschoolers – our beachy, bach-inspired centre is encircled by our very own orchards. And yes, the mandarins, plums and figs that surround our centre often make their way onto our tamariki’s plates and into their tummies!

Curiosity approach accredited

At New Shoots Papamoa, we embrace the art of play and there’s no better place for it than our spacious, park-like outdoor areas. As a member of the Enviroschools programme and our own Kura Ngahere (Forest Kindy), we view the environment as the third teacher, promoting relationships that help children develop the confidence to freely explore the world around them, rain or shine.

We are New Zealand’s first Curiosity Approach Accredited early childhood centre, which means we focus on using natural, real-life items and sustainable resources to foster a culture of curiosity and wonder.

Culture & Community

Whānau is incredibly valuable to us and the strength of our community is evident through the turnout at our centre events like annual quiz nights, Matariki celebrations and picnic days. We’d love to welcome you to the New Shoots Papamoa family – please pop in for a visit anytime!
