ABC Manurewa Central
 has a brand-new playground!  We welcome all families to visit our centre and enjoy the dynamic and fun learning environment. At ABC Manurewa Central we’re open from 7.00am – 5.30pm, Monday to Friday. We offer sessions, short days and full day options both part time or full time over the week. We encourage you to come and have a look at our centre to see how we can help your child become an independent, confident learner.

Teaching Team

We have a well-established team of teachers, many having worked in the centre for many years who are dedicated, experienced and knowledgeable, offering quality education and care for our children. Our qualified kaiako are committed, hard-working and enthusiastic who provide supportive, encouraging and nurturing educational experiences and care for tamariki from 3 months to school age.


Our environment nutures children’s home cultures and is rich in cultural celebrations. We use a wide range of teaching approaches and strategies when working with our children and use the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whāriki, to provide engaging and stimulating programmes that are exciting for all the children in our centre.

Kiwi Room (3 months to two)

We value developing warm, responsive relationships with our tamariki and our practice in this room is loving and nurturing. We provide a calm environment where infant’s routines are relaxed and child focused; babies are stimulated and supported and toddlers are challenged and extended. The learning and development opportunities provided are personalised to their specific individual needs.

Pukeko Room (two years – school)

The Pukeko room has a new playground with a range of interesting play spaces. We use natural resources as part of our sustainable philosophy and teaching. Teachers work individually with each child and with groups of children, offering them the support and guidance to help them critically think, problem solve and explore. Our unique Be School Ready initiative has been developed to ensure that children leave the centre as confident, capable learners, having had many different experiences to prepare for the next step in their education journey.


We believe in having a positive attitude towards food and nutrition and we support our children to develop skills in healthy eating. We provide a nutritious morning, afternoon tea and lunch that is prepared by our cook in our on-site kitchen. Our cook caters for a range of different dietary requirements children might have each day. If you would like more information on our tasty, delicious meals, please let us know.
