At New Shoots Children's Centre we know children grow and develop in an environment where they are happy and secure. They learn through being exposed to lots of different activities and through being taught by qualified and caring teachers. We know the importance of quality early childhood experiences to a child’s success later in life. New Shoots Children's Centre is situated on the corner of Tara Road and Twin Oaks Drive, Papamoa. Positioned on 6,000 metres of beautiful land, we have lots of space for children to run and play outdoors. This modern centre is purpose built and consists of two separate buildings.Nursery Building: • 0 - walking (12 children)• Walking - 18 months (13 children)• 18 months - 2.5 years (20-25 children)
Preschool Building: • 2.5 - 3.5 years (25 children)• 3.5 - 5 years (25 children)All our centres are purpose built early childhood facilities with a strong emphasis on connections with families and the community and have specially designed rooms for infants, toddlers and preschoolers.The participation of parents is also high on our list of priorities. The exchange of information between parents and teachers enriches the New Shoots’ experience.At New Shoots we know that the best way for children to learn is through fun and play, and we make sure they have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of fun activities and games that help them learn how to communicate, develop social skills as well as cognitive skills, concentration and fine motor skills.New Shoots incorporates the goals and learning outcomes of Te Whaariki (the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum) into our daily activities and programs, making sure children gain a strong cultural awareness and appreciation of their place in today’s society.We are proud of and have confidence in our dedicated and professional teachers who enable us to provide exceptional programs for your child.We look forward to meeting you and your family.
