Te Atatu Discoveries Educare
‘Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of the future.’ – Maria Montessori

Kia Ora, Ni Hau, Namaste, Hello and Welcome to Discoveries Educare Te Atatu.

Our Centre is a hidden gem that caters for children from 3 months to school age. Here at te Atatu Discoveries Educare we pride ourselves on ensuring we provide the best possible care and education for all children. We believe in listening to the rhythm of your child and responding to their needs accordingly through fostering warm and responsive relationships.

Our teachers are qualified and believe that all children should be treated as individuals so that they grow to become confident, competent lifelong learners.

Our programme is flexible and tailored to the needs of each child using the Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whāriki to underpin the learning taking place. We are committed to a bi-cultural practice that also acknowledges Maori as Tangata Whenua. Our teaching team reflects the cultural diversity of our community, we embrace the knowledge gained from other cultures as well as sharing our own.

We welcome you to come up and see for yourself the warm caring nature of our centre. We are happy to answer any questions that you may have either in person, phone or email.

We aim to provide a consistent, high standard care and education to children through nurturing their inquiring minds and encouraging their individualism. We are here to foster the development of their critical thinking skills, initiative, choice and appreciation of differences.

It is our core mission to create a personalised, secure, caring and nurturing environment for your child and help them learn and grow all throughout their developmental years.

We understand and respect that each child has a different physical, emotional, social and spiritual development which is why we equip our centres with resources that acknowledge the value of cultural diversity. We respect the unique place of Maori children as Tangata Whenua and understand that each child has the right to rich bi-cultural experiences that reflect the heritage of all parties.

We strongly support the idea of building strong relationships between the parent and the child. We encourage that all parents, whānau and matua actively participate in our daily programmes and other special events.

Our centre’s programme is based on the ‘Te Whaariki’ New Zealand early childhood curriculum from Ministry of Education.  

We want to help build your child’s confidence and prepare him or her for the transition to primary school with ease. Our services are open to children and families of all race, religion, gender, cultural heritage and political beliefs. We put high value to your input in rearing your child at school. At Discoveries Educare, everyone is welcome to learn and grow.

We strongly believe in the philosophy that hands-on experience is the best way for a child to learn.

We ensure to include in your child’s programme a number of daily activities that will help in the process of learning and development. We encourage them to speak their minds and ask questions and we offer child directed activities like art and sensory time. We also organise activities that allow parents like you to establish a deeper bond with your child and collectively interact with other children at the centre.
