At Seeds & Sprouts Childcare, we aim to stimulate inquiry, encouraging the “why” questions and offer support and awhi throughout the day ensuring all individual children’s needs are met.

We pride ourselves in the provision of a safe, loving environment where your child will be nurtured and cared for by our kaiako who role model a caring, happy learning environment.

We are committed to providing a strong learning environment in partnership with you as the child’s parents, caregivers and whānau, so that together we can see your child become well-rounded, confident and competent. Our children learn through play and the shared experiences they have with their kaiako and other tamariki.

By providing carefully thought-out experiences, based on the children’s interests, from our team, we work to support and care for your tamariki. We support our tamariki to be independent learners, and we do this by encouraging them to try things for themselves and to take responsibility for their own learning in dressing, toileting routines and eating. We are here to guide and support our children through their learning and their everyday play and experiences.

At Seeds and Sprouts, we have a number of qualified staff along with untrained teachers who are doing Early Childhood Training. Valuing the concept of Ākonga, being teachers and learners together, we acknowledge the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whāriki as the guiding document that influences our work with tamariki.

At Seeds & Sprouts we think choosing the right early childcare centre is one of the most important choices you will make for your tamariki. By choosing Seeds & Sprouts, you can be assured that your child is cared for in an environment that fits well with your values, provides a happy, social environment where there are educational opportunities and your child can develop confidence and self-awareness in their journey with us.
