Henderson Early Childcare Centre
Infant Toddler & Preschool
Bear Park Childcare Henderson is a unique place. Nestled in the young, vibrant, fast growing Waitakere region of Auckland City, it provides a place where educational innovation, research and creativity are magnified by our distinctive New Zealand landscape and multilingual, culturally rich community. From the youngest infant in the Fantail Room to the pre-schooler in the Kiwi Room all the children who attend Bear Park Childcare Henderson experience an environment which encourages learning by discovery, a sense of belonging and exploration without borders.
The spacious light filled classrooms greet children’s natural sense of wonder and curiosity as soon as they begin their day. Their great desire to know, engage with and contribute to their world is met by beautiful hand crafted and natural learning resources, constantly reviewed by teachers and staff who passionately seek ways to nurture and grow each child’s delight in learning. Comforting, cosy nests of space are juxtaposed with shared open places where children collaborate, debate and learn from one another.
Our designer built Childcare Henderson Centre is nestled within an alcove of educational facilities, with the areas local kindergarten and Summerland Primary School beside us.
Opened in February 2004, we cater for our children in aged appropriate classrooms, where the learning environment is full of exciting explorative educational encounters.
Each classroom has easy access to a natural outside area, where the children can extend their gross motor skills; experience the joy of sand play; design their own water board; go on a "Bear Hunt" or just have fun creating their own game with friends.
Our caring and passionate team of teachers support the child in their learning and encourage them in a positive and responsive manner to develop their ideas and skills further.
Everyone at the Centre contributes to making the atmosphere a noticeably warm one, where children can be themselves and develop in their own time and way. Communication is the key factor on all levels.
The emphasis on parents’ input is also vital to the centre’s success. Parent participation is valued and warmly encouraged. The Parent Committee acts as another voice for the general parent body, encouraging open, honest communication between the parents and Centre.
There are parent teacher evenings, regular newsletters and regular social evenings - an opportunity to meet other parents and have some fun.
