Our History

Discoveries Educare commenced in 2009 with a centre in Manurewa. This has expanded to 9 centres and a home based childcare service. Currently, Discoveries Educare has the capacity to cater to the needs of almost 300 children.

Discoveries Educare was the creation of Rippan Sandhu, a dedicated mother of two lovely children and a passionate advocate of quality childcare services. Her experience in the early childhood education of her own children led her to understand the key ingredients required for a child’s successful development. This, combined with her experience of Montessori education and New Zealand childcare practice in general has led to the creation of Discoveries Educare, enabling her to put her visionary ideas into practice.

She has a vision of childcare delivery where all the elements for a child’s wellbeing can be embedded in real practice and realised through the work of a dedicated and profession team.
