Top 5 Centre Benefits

Growing Tauranga community

Children feel at home the minute they enter New Shoots. Catering to Tauranga’s ever-growing community at The Lakes, New Shoots is conveniently located down the road from the local school, and with many parks and walking trails on our doorstep. Our early childhood centre is the perfect choice for the many young families at The Lakes.

Family-feel centre

Winner of the 2020 Waikato / Bay of Plenty Architectural Awards, our purpose-built centre boasts high ceilings, exposed timber beams and a translucent roof strip. Within our walls, the rooms are filled with custom-made child-friendly furniture, a lush, earthy aesthetic and plenty of stunning Tauranga sunlight.

With an abundance of greenery, two sandpits, and a generous covered deck, our outside area lets children connect with nature, explore their boundaries and hone their creativity.

The outdoors is shared by all our tamariki, cementing our centre’s family feel. Nobody is a stranger and children float naturally between teachers and spaces as they might with a large, extended family.


Nurturing environment

At New Shoots The Lakes, we focus on a curriculum of care, kindness and respect. Relationships are at the heart of everything we do and our amazing kaiako provide every child with a warm, nurturing environment.
