Early Childhood Centre

Tahunanui Community Early Childhood Centre


Every Monday - Friday  7.45am - 5.15pm
Open school holidays, apart from closing over Christmas/New Year.

An environment where children and families/whanau are valued and respected. Our curriculum is a balance of child/adult initiated play and learning. We encourage children to become creative thinkers giving them time and support to play, explore freely and in safety and to practise skills. We believe children are holistic learners and our programme is based on the four principles of Te Whāriki to promote this.

Learning should be fun!


Playgroup & Let's Dance Session


Every Monday during school term time: 9.30 - 12 noon.

A place that is welcoming, relaxed, playful and rich in learning. Playgroup provides for children’s basic needs for comfort, health and safety, nurture, stimulation and fun!

Starting at 9.30am in our Community Centre Hall with our fun "Let's Dance" session followed by a joint morning tea at the Tahunanui Community Early Childhood Centre at 10.30am. Cost for this session is $2.

A place to meet others where the focus is on positive cooperation, learning and enjoyment.
