ABC Primrose Street
ABC Primrose is a centre licenced for 40 children that consists of two classes. Our Kowhai Room for Infants 3months- to 2.5years old and our Pohutakawa Room for children 2.5years old to 5years old. We pride ourselves on recognising the importance of whanau/family relationships. Teachers extend children through our Be School Ready initiative which aligns with Key Competencies of the NZ curriculum.
ABC Primrose Vision: The tamariki of ABC Primrose are rangatira in all aspects of Te Ao. Together we lead each other towards the vision of kotahitanga for the future of our tamariki as 21st century leaders. This is our commitment towards achieving Mauri Ora
Bi-Cultural practice is important to our teachers and whanau. Our children are given opportunities to know and share their whakapapa-who is in their family. Children’s sense of belonging is valued at ABC Primrose. Our teaching practice allows children the opportunity to participate, hear and speak Te Reo Maori. We have an ongoing relationship with the local marae Hemi Tapu. Every thursday we take a group of tamariki for a walk to hemi tapu to enjoy a fun session of kanikani mai.
Nutritious meals are prepared and cooked often alongside children so they can develop early habits of health and nutrition. Our centre has a shared spacious outdoor area with a bike track, a community garden, a child operated water feature, a large sandpit and much more outdoor equipment that can extend your child’s physical ability. Kotahitanga– Unity. Our children learn the importance of working with others, being respectful through positive guidance and sharing their learning space with different age groups.

“I would just like to take the time to write this email to display my gratitude towards the staff. Not only the staff in the Kowhai room looking after my child so well but also the staff at the end of the day in the other room for loving, supporting and teaching my baby to the best of their ability. When ever I walk into the centre I am always greeted with smiles and warmth. I say it all the time that Primrose is the best centre and recommend it to everyone I know! Thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart!”
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.
