ABC Foxton Beach
ABC Foxton Beach is a small childcare centre, located next to Foxton Beach Primary School. Our passionate team of qualified teachers have a wide range of experience. Our teachers have exactly what it takes to excite, motivate and extend children to fulfil their learning potential.
“Where children can learn and develop through the natural environment, building knowledge around sustainability and of our responsibility as Kaitaiaki (guardians) of the land.”
Living off the land
Our children are surrounded in beautiful vegetable gardens, fruit trees, driftwood, shells and harakeke. Children and whanau experience an environment where they can see the full process of planting crops and enjoying the rewards. We include education around healthy food options through the healthy heart program and this is promoted with healthy lunch box ideas, process cooking and daily fruit on offer for all children to enjoy.
Utilising our unique coastal environment
We love our beach lifestyle here and often go off for walks into the pine forest, sand dunes and investigate the lovely bird life we have here in Foxton Beach. The children have ‘investigation back packs’ to take when we go exploring. These include clip boards, pencils, specimen jars and magnifying glasses to explore and investigate.
Building knowledge around sustainability
We have started a journey of becoming a more sustainable centre and having less impact on the environment. This will see us get more involve in recycling, replanting crops each season, promoting the unique role that bugs and wild life play in our environment.
Be School Ready
Our Be School Ready initiative is carefully designed to support children’s next big learning step when they move to primary school. We support parents and children as they develop the skills and attitudes for being a lifelong learner. We have a unique advantage as we are situated next to Foxton Beach School. We connect with them regularly to ensure children are familiar with staff and the grounds.
Come and see us today. We’d love to show you some of the exciting things happening at ABC Foxton Beach!
We are proud to have a silver Healthy Heart Award!

“The overall feel of the centre is so welcoming and has the feel that we are all part of one big whanau. I know that when I leave my child that they are not just physically cared for but nurtured as she would be at home.”
“Very nice pleasant staff who have a great rapport with the children. They try their best to provide for the needs of all children (they really care). Our grandson loves going to ABC and never hesitates to go in when he arrives. Treat children like individuals and make them feel special.”
“We would like to say thank you and we really appreciate everything you you have done for Teimana. He is so lucky to have had such awesome people as teachers. You have created a positive learning environment in which he has grown and learnt so much. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts.”
