Our Vision

To activate a child’s own natural drive to learn

At Hātea Early Learning Centre we value an environment which inspires curiosity and encourages explorations which develop into meaningful interactions amongst peers and kaiako.


As well as embracing our bicultural heritage and the multicultural mix of our community, we also value the contribution and role played by parents and whānau and use open communication with reciprocal and responsive relationships with each child’s whānau.

"The goal of early childhood education should be to unlock the childs own natural desire to learn"

This centre was purpose built for childcare and was originally operated by another provider. When they moved on we didn't want to let this beautiful boutique little centre disappear, so we took over to start Hātea Early Learning Centre. We love our space here and we are sure you will too, come in and visit us any time!
