ABC Dannemora is a spacious, purpose-built centre with five different rooms, each tailored to meet the needs of children in different age groups and at different stages of learning. We have different age appropriate playgrounds for each age group which allows them to learn, play and develop at their own pace.

We are proud to be part of a multi-cultural community which has proved beneficial to both our children and staff, enabling them to learn about, understand and respect the exciting cultural diversity within our community.

Our team believes that ‘play is a child’s work’ and children are encouraged to explore, ask questions and build on their current knowledge and skills. We strive to create a space/environment that allows children to make choices and to understand how things work through active exploration with all their senses.

We understand that choosing an early childhood centre is a big decision. We assure you that you and your child will enjoy your time with us. We as a team are committed to provide the best learning and care environment to all the children.

At ABC Dannemora we have created a warm, safe, educational environment for children and their families. We work closely with parents and this partnership helps children achieve their learning potential. Our nursery and preschool has excellent staff to child ratios, quality equipment and toys in a safe, nurturing, stimulating and attractive learning environment.

At our centre you will find a nurturing attitude and a commitment to ensure that each child is cared for by our friendly qualified staff. Our programme not only supports your child in their learning but extends their interests based on Te Whariki; our early childhood curriculum. Our unique Be School Ready initiative has been developed to ensure that children leave the centre as confident and capable learners.

Looking forward to be part of your child’s learning and development journey.

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.
