Nau Mai, Haere Mai Ki
At Acorn Kids, we believe that as an Early Education Centre we have an important part to play in our community and a very special opportunity to positively impact young children’s lives in their early stages of development.
With a safe and nurturing environment for your child, we provide a place for children to learn, develop and grow through social interaction in an engaging environment, carefully set up by kaiako, with lots of opportunities to explore and learn.
Our centre caters for tamariki aged 0-6yrs and we are open 7.30am-5.30pm, Monday – Friday. Conveniently located on Cameron Road, in Tauranga’s CBD, we are easy to find and within a short travelling distance to the local town, making us a natural choice for busy parents and local families in the community.
Your child will love our home away from home, with our well laid out learning corners at our centre, consisting of a family play area, creative art corner as well as a quiet space for reading and reflection. There’s also plenty of natural resources with space to explore.
Our teaching team is made up of passionate, experienced teachers who are warm, welcoming and naturally wonderful people. Our qualified Early Childhood Educators bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team and their special connection with our children is cherished and supported in our centre.
Teachers guide our Tamariki in learning, engaging them with fun, sensory and also challenging experiences to nurture their development. All children are valued at their unique stage of life, respected for who they are and have equal opportunities to ensure the best possible start in life.
"I am glad that my son is in safe hands, and he always feel so happy whenever he is going to Acorn. Such a friendly environment. Thanks."
“My child is loving being at Acorn. Sometimes he gets upset when we leave but the lovely ladies are very comforting to him. The ladies are great and I love that you can have a laugh with them. Very welcoming!”
“The staff at Acorn Kids are amazing! I couldn’t be happier to leave my child in their care. They are well trained to handle the child and teach them, and are great with communication during pick up and drop off. Acorn really feels like family."
