ABC Rotorua East, part of the BestStart family, offer quality childcare and education in Owhata, Rotorua. We offer you and your child an environment that is a ‘home away from home’. We are a mixed centre where under two and over two year olds play and learn together.
Our centre is committed to supporting and extending your child’s independence and interests. Our children are empowered to make their own choices through the resources we are able to provide for them, learning through their own investigations and discoveries.

Our outdoor environment allows children to explore the natural world and to grow their own vegetables and plants. The environments are regularly set up with a range of equipment to ensure that the children are able to develop their physical and cognitive skills.

We believe in establishing and maintaining positive, responsive relationships with parents and whanau to support and extend the children’s learning.

We are passionate about providing a stimulating learning environment for our tamariki to ensure we have every opportunity to reach their full potential.
What else you can expect from our childcare centre:
• Individual learning programmes for each child
• Engaging toys and equipment to extend children
• Qualified teachers who stimulate children’s play and learning
• Nutritious, delicious meals
• Fun and friendship for children
• Free van pick-ups and drop-offs (conditions apply)


We are excited to offer our families access to Storypark e-portfolios. They are a great way to keep up to date with what your 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.
