ABC Howick education and childcare centre is located close to Howick Village in East Auckland. Situated within easy travelling distance for parents living in Bucklands Beach, Eastern Beach, Cockle Bay and Highland Park, we provide a safe, supportive and engaging learning environment for our children.
Relationships with children and partnerships with parents form a strong foundation for learning in our centre. Our philosophy places emphasis on the importance of free play and our unique environment provides a home away from home feeling, providing children with engaging and challenging experiences that help them develop the essential dispositions that create a life long love of learning.
Our building is a converted heritage homestead which has catered to the early childhood education needs of the Howick community for over 20 years. Our centre is rich with character and all the teachers and children who have journeyed before us have filled our walls with love.
We are lucky to have a wonderful large outdoor play space that supports children’s ongoing physical development and natural inquisitiveness. Our outdoor area is an extension of our classroom and supports the development of children’s dexterity and social competence. Our beautiful heritage tree provides natural shade and can be climbed along with climbing frames. Our bikes, swings, water play area and creative arts area ensures our children are provided with numerous activities to develop and grow.
Our fantastic resources and fully qualified teachers support children to actively participate in centre life, empowering them to inquire and explore as they learn about the world around them.
We offer children the opportunity to participate in a small group sizes, with 8 children in our under 2’s room and 37 children over 2 in our in our preschool rooms. We support parent/whānau partnerships and welcome feedback and ideas that help us to create a meaningful learning environment.
