Top 5 Centre Benefits

Bespoke spaces

Welcome to New Shoots Whenuapai – a bespoke space where you’ll find children giggling and dancing as they climb through tunnels, hunt for dinosaurs and watch sandpit volcanoes erupt.

Famous for its prestigious award-winning building, our architecturally designed centre draws its inspiration from the sea. The building itself is shaped like a whale, and the sea creature theme is mirrored throughout with room names like Pipi and Moana.

Perfect for our three age groups

Within our walls, beautifully interactive spaces are tailored to each age group, inspiring tamariki’s imagination, stimulating their curiosity and supporting their growth. Our whimsical rooms are infused with shapes and colours, cosy couches and natural resources for endless hours of fun.

Explore & discover

We embrace tuakana-teina, reflected in our shared outdoor environment bringing older and younger children together to explore and learn from one another. Given freedom to run and climb, dig and splash, they become the masters of their own journey towards becoming confident, resilient young people.

A place of connection

Community is woven into our daily lives and we value the relationships we have built with the local school and our air force whānau. From hosting parents’ nights, to cultural celebrations and an open door policy, we view our early childhood centre as a point of connection within the community.

Pop in today and visit your child’s home away from home in the heart of Whenuapai.
