Nurture Early Learning is owned and managed by two families. Their mission, when they built the centre in 2010, was to provide the Avondale area with a childcare centre that sets a benchmark for high standards within New Zealand.
To achieve this, they designed a building that encourages a high level of engagement between teacher and child. The layout allows teachers to easily create authentic, hands-on, exploratory learning opportunities for children, both indoors and outdoors. The centre design draws on influences from the natural environment. It features amazing natural lighting, sensitive use of natural materials, and landscaping that incorporates native and edible plants. Nurture Early Learning is also passionate about continued education for their staff, so they have an extensive budget for Professional Development. Throughout the year the team has guest lecturers at the centre, and staff often attend conferences with international key note speakers.
Our teachers are extremely proud to take ownership of the atmosphere fostered by these ideas. This enables Nurture to secure the highest standard of teaching staff.
The success of these factors is easily measured by the fact that our centre draws families from across Auckland, making Nurture Early Learning a destination worth travelling to. The owners are extremely proud of this achievement, and they wish to thank the Nurture families for their support. Kia Kaha
