Pupuke Early Education Centre

Quality loving childcare in Takapuna

Pupuke Early Education centre has been open since May 2009 and we are licensed to care for children from 2 years of age. We have professional, qualified, experienced teachers who will care for and educate your child as if they were their own. Personable, loving care, home cooked meals and a philosophy embedded in the Virtues Project together make us one of the most sought after centres on the North Shore. We have 2 rooms: our Tui Room for our 2 to 3 ½ year olds and our Pukeko Room for our 3 ½ to five year olds.

Our rolls are nearly always full but our wait list is not too long and we would love to hear from you and give you the opportunity of a tour through the centre and a discussion about your childcare needs.

Client Photos/DSCF8494(copy).jpgWe have eleven lovely teachers here and a wonderful centre cook and we all consider it a privilege to care for, educate, love and feed your children. Our philosophy is based on the Virtues Project which is about teaching children gifts of character such as respect, love, compassion, justice, truthfulness, honour and commitment.

The five strategies of the virtues project are:

  • Speak the language of the virtues
  • Recognise teachable moments
  • Set clear boundaries
  • Honour the spirit
  • Offer the art of spiritual companioning

At Pupuke, we welcome children and teachers regardless of gender, ethnicity, ability, socio-economic status or religion. We value and appreciate diversity. We promote a balance of child choice and teacher initiated experiences. This will be achieved through supportive, nurturing teachers and a caring, child centred environment.

We would love to meet you and your family so if you are interested in a quality, professional childcare centre, please give our centre a call and speak to Shona Hewitt the centre manager or our lovely office manager Rhonda Pool regarding an appointment to have a tour through and discuss your childcare requirements.
