ABC Waterview is a small education and childcare centre tucked away in a quiet residential area in Waterview. We provide and deliver to each and every child, quality education opportunities and experiences coupled with the absolute best nurturing and care.
We are licensed for 28 over 2’s and 14 under 2’s and provide a range of age appropriate learning opportunities for our children incorporating literacy, numeracy, music and science. Parents and family are encouraged to share aspirations for their child to support their interests and learning.
Our centre has a large outdoor area that enables us to create lots of learning opportunities through play in our natural environment. Our large oak tree in the playground provides natural shade in the summer and a wonderful atmosphere.
Infants and toddlers
Our under 2’s teachers know how to support children in developing foundation skills using a variety of resources that encourage our babies to develop and reach their milestones. Teacher’s develop strong trusting, relationships with children and share their milestones with both parents and family. Nurturing and building solid relationships is very much the foundation for their ongoing development. Being a small centre, our older children have the opportunity to be part of this process, providing them with the opportunity to develop empathy with their younger peers.
Our preschoolers benefit from our Be School Ready initiative which ensures children leave the centre as confident, capable learners, prepared for the next step in their education journey. Children experience many learning opportunities throughout the day through games, art, music, mat time and various other activities that help develop their literacy and numeracy skills and increase their understanding of the world around them. Children’s physical and gross motor skills are also challenged in our wonderful outdoor environment. Our children learn to share and relate to each other and are encouraged to take responsibility for their belongings and develop self-help skills to prepare them for school.
For a limited time we are offering 30hrs free for children over 3yrs old. Special conditions apply so ask us for details.
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 to see what’s been happening in their day, check out photos of them and comment on their activities. Click here for more information.
Hapaitia te ara tika pumau ai te rangatiratanga mo nga uri whakatipu – Foster the pathway of knowledge to strength, independence and growth for future generations.
We welcome you to visit our centre to meet the team and see what we can offer you and your child. We look forward to meeting you.
“I looked at a few centres before having ABC Waterview recommended to me by a friend who has a child there and I’m so glad they did. It has a nice big outdoor area and spacious indoors too. The staff are excellent and very attentive and caring plus I’m always impressed at the variety of interesting activities they have the children doing. My son has been going there for a year now and absolutely loves it”.
“Since starting at ABC Waterview my child’s education has come along in leaps and bounds. Most important of all he has been happy and well settled there since day one!”
“We love ABC Waterview!! Some of the highlights are an amazing, large, shaded play area; friendly, positive, engaged teachers who genuinely care for the children; healthy, diverse menu and the expectations the children learn around eating, sharing, manners and trying new things;respect, communication and community are priorities and as a parent this is ideal.”
