Creating the Magic of Childhood

Our environments both indoors and outdoors are filled with intriguing learning activities, and children discover practical life skills, sensorial exploration, mathematics, science, problem solving, communication skills, creativity and imagination. We want your child to love learning and discover their true potential as a human being. Our curriculum teaches important life skills, and instils in your child a sense of wonder about the world around them. Pukekos provides a balance between freedom, order and responsibility. This nurtures and stimulates the spontaneous curiosity within the children and develops self discipline and an internal sense of purpose and motivates within them. Unlike many other early childhood centres whose outdoor area is dominated by steel climbing frames, rubber matting and plastic outdoor toys, Pukekos is nationally renown for its safe, meaningful and beautiful natural environments and materials. We give children time to interact with nature and living things, including gardening and growing plants, as children learn most effectively through hands on experience and the process of investigation and discovery.
