Welcome to ABC Botany!
ABC Botany is a newly renovated, spacious purpose built centre with four different age specific rooms. These rooms are designed to meet the individual needs of the children and provide a safe and stimulating environment for the children to explore. Our recently redeveloped outdoor environments offer age appropriate experiences that help support children’s self-confidence as well as gross motor skills.
We have a multicultural team of dedicated teachers who understand the importance of Early Childhood Education. As a team we are committed to providing an environment where all cultures are supported, celebrated and respected. We encourage our families to share their culture with us, by doing this we create lasting links between the centre and home.
The development of our programme is driven by children’s current interests, dispositions, skills and Parent and Whanau aspirations. Teachers are confident in identifying your child’s interests and dispositions and in providing meaningful learning experiences that extend on these interests.
We use a programme called Storypark to share your child’s learning and development with you, as the Administrator of your child’s Storypark account you can invite as many family members as you would like to share in your child’s learning journey.
Our unique Be School Ready initiative starts from when your child starts with us, it has been developed to ensure that children leave the centre as confident, capable learners and prepared for the next step in their education journey.
ABC Botany provides morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea which are cooked on site. Our menus are on a 4 week rotation including sessional options and each of our healthy options can be adjusted to suit the individual dietary needs of each child.
At ABC Botany we provide:
- High child to staff ratios
- Large inviting and stimulating learning environments
- Caring and passionate teachers
We are excited to offer our families access to Storypark e-portfolios. They are a great way to keep up to date with what you child is doing while at the centre. You can log in to the secure platform wherever you are in the world to see what’s been happening in their day, check out photos of them and comment on their activities.

“Thank you for the wonderful relationship we have enjoyed over the years as my children have passed through your education system, forming new relationships and gaining knowledge. I can not fail to mention the outstanding skills of the teachers, who helped our child blossom from a shy child to a confident and happy little boy.”
“I am very happy with the centre and care that my child gets, i feel that his teachers all know my child very well and take an interest in what he is doing both in and out of the centre. He has built friendships with some of the other children within the room and is always excited to go back the following day to see them. My child has a great relationship with all of the teachers. Overall this is a great centre.”
“My daughter has only been attending the centre for a short period of time but in that time her learning has developed immensely. She enjoys her time at the centre and the staff are very understanding of her emotional needs and are empathetic towards her.”
“What a special place you have all made ABC Botany. Be proud! The teachers and staff are all so caring, you have all made ABC Botany into such a special place. Thank you for all that you have done for both of our children in the 8 and a half years of association.”
