About Us

Early learning at Flippers is a fully licensed early childhood centre that provides full time, part time and casual care. We have six awesome, registered and qualified staff. We are a mixed aged centre where the tuńĀkana/teina concept of learning and teaching works great as our children are encouraged to and enjoy looking out for each other and passing their knowledge on to each other.

We participate in the government 20 (free) hours ECE scheme for 3-4 yr olds and accept WINZ childcare subsidy. We are currently taking enrolments for children 0-5 years.

We pride ourselves on maintaining a fun and interesting learning environment that stems from your child’s interest and family input.

We have a settling process which makes the transition to centre easier for both parents/whanau and children to feel comfortable in a new environment and to get to know the Flippers whanau.

We have an exciting programme for our older 4 year olds which takes place on Wednesdays in "the bush" aka  Roberts Park not far from centre. 

Enjoy exploring our site and come and see us soon.
