Little Minds Early Learning Centre

As the koru unfurls to a silver fern, we inspire little minds to reach their full potential

Welcome to Little Minds Early Learning Centre

At Little Minds Early Learning Centre we have a wonderful family of children, parents, whaanau and teachers. We have two inviting learning environments, our babies to two year old Koru room, and our two to 5 year old Fern room.

Our aim is to offer children and their families a quality education programme firmly embedded within the bicultural and multicultural diversity of Aotearoa.

Kotahi te kaakano, he nui ngaa hua o te raakau - A tree comes from one seed but bears many fruit.

Our Philosophy

At Little Minds Early Learning Centre we believe in inspiring little minds to reach their full potential, just as the koru unfurls into a silver fern. Through play-based learning, Teachers will follow the children's interests, as well as growing their minds by introducing new experiences to excite their imagination. We strive to build a respectful community of happy, engaged learners and encourage opportunities to build tuakana teina relationships. When our children leave our centre they will be equipped with all the skills and passion to continue on their lifelong learning journey.
