Quality Child Care

Our Centre

Atawhai childcare is located in the heart of Toi Ohomai and provides childcare for students and the wider community.


We offer a warm, nurturing, stimulating educational environment, rich in learning resources with enthusiastic and passionate educators. Our educators are experienced, professional and hold either the Primary and/or ECE qualifications. Our aim is to provide quality childcare that fosters relationships and adventure that builds lifelong learners.


Our childcare centre is underpinned by the Reggio Emilia approach to learning and all environments provide opportunities for children to explore and challenge their own interest through play. Our learning environments are specifically designed to challenge children in all aspects of their physical, social and mental development.

Our Centre is separated into two spaces,

Our under 2 space caters for children aged from newborn to approximately 2 years old with:

  • Specialised infant and toddler areas

  • Caring, responsive and dedicated educators

  • Quality programmes to build your child’s developing strengths, needs, and interests

Our Over 2's space caters for children aged 2 years to 6 years. Our program will provide your child with the opportunity to continue to:

  • Build confidence and self esteem

  • Develop language and communication skills

  • Develop skills of inquiry, thinking and reasoning

  • Enjoy creative experiences and learn perseverance

  • Develop confidence, independence and self help skills

  • Develop learning caring, reflective and principled behaviour

  • Develop being open minded, well balanced and knowledgeable

  • Develop friendships and of course have fun in our challenging learning environments.


We look forward to working in together with whanau, educators and of course our priority, your children. This is the foundation of our philosophy that you will see evident in our day to day practice.

Our aim is to provide opportunities for every child to have the freedom to learn and grow in Atawhai Childcare..
