What to Expect

Peanuts Childcare and Education Centre provides quality childcare for children 0-6 years of age.   Our qualified, passionate staff believe in celebrating the unique individuality of each tamariki in our care.  We are a child-led centre which enables us to journey alongside every child and their whaanau on their journey of learning in a way that is supportive, flexible and meaningful to each child, affirming them as individuals & forging a life-long passion for learning.
                       "Children are not things to be moulded, but people to be unfolded"

Our Philosophy
Peanuts is a place where relationships matter. We believe in order to touch a child's mind, first we must reach their heart. To do this we believe in developing nurturing, trusting, respectful and caring relationships which embrace both children and their whānau. We value parents as their child's first and most important teacher in life.
We are influenced by the RIE philosophy which practice focuses on key teacher care, freedom of movement and respect for infants. We never lose sight of the fact that we are caring for your child in partnership with you.

Why peanuts ?
Alongside our excellent child:teacher ratio we offer age-specific, calm, natural and thoughtfully resourced environments; encouraging tamariki of all ages, abilities, interests and backgrounds to engage in the learning that captures their interests.    

Our Learning Environments
Te Ruma Ruru (The Ruru Room) age 0-2/2.5 years
Named for our guardian resident Ruru (morepork) Molly, Te Ruma Ruru caters for our infants and toddlers in a calm, unhurried environment designed to evoke the comforting feeling of home.  The thoughtfully resourced and staffed environment reflects the belief that our infants and toddlers deserve the very best start in life.  Teaching practice in the Ruru Room is heavily influenced by the RIE/Pikler philosophy.  Here your infant or toddler will be supported and cared for in an unhurried, calm and respectful manner that follows their individual routines, preferences and rhythms.

Te Ruma Tui (The Tui Room) age 2/2.5 - 6
The environment in Te Ruma Tui is designed to facilitate choice, challenge, wonderment,    self-direction and inspire tamariki to follow their interests.  The kaiako in the Tui Room guide a program which is child-led, individually planned around each child's interests in a thoughtfully resourced environment to cater for a wide variety of interests, ages and preferences.  School readiness and key competencies (social skills, pre-literacy and pre-maths etc) are interwoven throughout the daily routines of Te Ruma Tui in an organic manner, setting a culture of responsibility, kindness, respect and integrity.

We have an open door policy.  If you wish to know more about our centre, please feel free to phone or come and see us.

Peanuts have such a great space indoors and out. My son has taken to the teachers wonderfully, I don't think he misses me at all! Great natural place.

Gabrielle Hardstaff

Both my baby's go here absolutely love it great teachers just started my youngest there and she absolutely loves plus thanks to all the staff who made it welcoming and easy for my baby to settle in.

Ayesha Mcqueen

Both Alex and Maddie have been going to Peanuts for coming up to 2 years. They love going each day and come home with exciting news of what they did. The teachers are so lovely and always make you and your children feel special. We recommend Peanuts to everyone.

Chelsea McLean

As an outside person new to town and an early childhood teacher when I visited Peanuts Childcare & Education Center I was very impressed with the care and attention that was given to the children, being a small center it had excellent ratios and the atmosphere was both loving and generous both indoors and outdoors.The children had time and space to learn and create aspects of play which had no time limits placed on them before it had to be cleared away. They say that if you can walk into a childcare center and observe children in their play, a lot can be said within those precious moments of observation. If a smile is genuine, laughter is key and magic is the ingredient then look no further, your child's journey will start here which will lead them on towards a future filled with fun, discovery and different ways of learning which will foster confidence, passion and empowerment. If my child was at this early stage in his life, I would love to bring him here, play and learning at its best amongst nature and caring educators who are passionate about there center.
