Bambinos Early Childhood Centre

About Us

Bambinos is owned and operated by the Grgicevich family who have been involved in professional childcare for the last 30 years. Bambinos vision is for children to become life-long learners.

This vision is supported through teachers’ focus on developing children’s physical, social, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual potential, and their implementation of Te Whāriki, the early childhood curriculum.

Respect, empowerment, family and relationships are some of the key values that underpin the programmes for children. We believe each child is respected as an individual whose potential is recognized and supported accordingly to his/her strengths and interest and abilities.

Our capable directors, managers and supervisors provide very good leadership at governance and management levels.

How we help children

Children at Bambinos will experience a planned and emergent curriculum that will build on their experiences and dispositions. They are given opportunities to learn and develop to their potential as well as to share and participate fully in the teaching and learning process. From babies, through to school age children, Bambinos has a strong educational programme where children can become flexible and can adapt to new environments easily as they develop strong social relationships.

There are developmental milestones reached by each child as they transition from room to room.

For your child to transition into primary school with confidence, our educational programme provides extensive learning opportunities, which support foundations for further learning.

Foundation skills involve the provision of experiences that support our literacy rich environment.

Children over 3 years are involved weekly in a Activ8 sports program.

This program teaches children the fundamental movement skills and makes physical activity fun. The sessions are based around various themes and stories appropriate to the age of children and build on an individual’s skill, activity levels and self-confidence.

Our physical environment

Bambinos is a purpose built childcare centre. We are designed to facilitate the integration of the indoor and outdoor areas.
