Childcare Centre in Albany
Welcome to our new purpose built childcare centre at Oteha Valley!
Our centre is built with latest and appropriate child learning resources and licensed for 75 Children. We have qualified teachers who have been carefully selected for their love and passion towards children and childcare.
We’re extremely proud of our open door policy and communication process, which encourages children, staff, management and parents/whanau/caregivers to feel a sense of belonging within our environment. We acknowledge the unique place of Maori children as Tangata Whenua in the sense that every child has the right to rich bi-cultural experiences that reflect their heritage.
As educators we believe in nurturing and teaching children to become confident independent learners who are confident in their own strength and abilities, and take pride in their own learning and accomplishments.
