New Shoots Tauranga Childcare Centre

Upon entering New Shoots Tauranga, you are immediately immersed in a calm, home-like environment. Warm and delicious smells drift from the kitchen where our chef lovingly prepares specially designed and nutritious meals to nourish our tamariki.

As you walk through the Centre, you will hear the sound of children happily exploring the beautifully set up learning environments that have been created by passionate kaiako who have taken into account the children’s interests and needs.  Our resources are sourced from ethical and sustainably minded providers allowing us to provide learning environments that are joyful, beautiful and show our commitment to support our tamariki to become global citizens.

Our passionate and dedicated kaiako engage in research and innovation to ensure we stay in touch and on top of new models of theory and child development.  We believe that relationships are at the heart of what we do and our compassionate and caring kaiako work with, and alongside, parents and whānau to ensure each child is recognised as a precious taonga.

Here at New Shoots Tauranga, we are committed to support children to develop dispositions that will see them becoming increasingly capable and competent, life-long learners, secure in their sense of belonging not only to the Centre, but also the wider community.  We go on regular excursions and celebrate local and national community events.

We are a family here at NewShoots Tauranga. Come in and see us. You will instantly feel a sense that our beautiful centre is a place where you and your child will feel at home.
