Hummingbirds Early Childcare Centre
Our purpose built early childhood centre is situated at 9 Farmhouse Lane, St Johns and caters for children three months to six years. We are open from 7.30am-6.00pm Monday to Friday, except statutory holidays.
Hummingbirds was founded on the vision of providing quality and affordable childcare to our community. We wanted to stand out as a special place for all, one that promotes leadership and professional development for its team, one where our children can engage in a setting that promotes creativity, curiosity and meaningful experiences for Infants, Toddlers and Young Children but most of all one that leaves lasting memories for children and adults alike.
Hummingbirds’ curriculum is inspired by the world renowned Reggio Emilia philosophy emanating from Northern Italy. This philosophy values the contribution made by the parent, teacher, environment and child to form a holistic base from which the child is encouraged to form their own working theories of the world they live in.
Our experienced and dedicated teachers create environments that empower children’s interests through hands-on inquiry learning that builds problem solving, collaboration between peers, self-help skills, confidence and creativity.
Hummingbirds enjoys a peaceful learning environment at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. Centrally located, our families come from many suburbs including St Johns, Meadowbank, Glen Innes, Mt Wellington, St Heliers, Mission Bay, Kohimarama, Remuera, Glendowie.
We feel 100% supported that our daughter is getting the best education and care. Rianna loves coming to daycare. She sometimes cries in the weekend because she wants to come to daycare.Anita Unka - May 2013 read more
