Why choose Fern Garden Preschool & Childcare Centre

 

  • At Fern Garden we wanted a ‘home away from home’ feeling for you and your child.

With 3 generations of teaching history in their families. that’s what a husband and wife team Nikeeta Singh (experienced ECE educator) and Dr Darius Singh (former university professor) have created for you and your child.

Fern Garden is a luxurious and award-winning centre, where we can focus all our attention and care on our 8 Babies, 16 Toddlers and 16 Preschoolers, right here in Otumoetai, Tauranga.
 
  • We wanted Fern Garden Preschool to be the most preferred and popular childcare centre in town.

That's the recognition we have now received from multi-national and local businesses who have chosen us exclusively for their staff childcare needs.
 
  • We wanted you and your child to be awe-inspired every day.

So we designed our own ‘personal meanings’ and ‘messages of hope’ and ‘wow factors’ throughout our Tauranga centre.

For example at Fern Garden Preschool & Childcare Centre we have:

- An 'infinity forest' projected on our backyard fence

- A giant indoor fern tree to read, play or sleep inside

- Peaceful music and soft twinkling starlight in our cot rooms where we project a life-like replica of the night sky onto the ceiling so your baby can sleep under the stars!

- Generously spacious play areas

- Rain or shine covered large outdoor playground

- An imagination room ...
 
  • At Fern Garden Preschool we wanted to give your child the best head start for school.

We have invented and patented an award winning ‘Learning Roots & Shoots®’ online system.

This system shows learning outcomes for your child growing on their personalised Learning Tree.

It’s also now licensed by popular demand and exclusively by a world leading parent portal (Kid Reports) to hundreds of centres in NZ (and soon around the world).
 

  • We wanted you to feel proud that you are sending your child to the best Preschool, Daycare, Kindergarten or Childcare Centre in NZ.

We worked hard to earn a Multi-Award-Winning status for Fern Garden and its sister centres, with over 12 nationally recognised awards and accolades since we started in 2010 in areas of play space design, teaching leadership, innovation, sustainability, and our popular 'Learning Roots and Shoots®' online system.
 
  • We wanted the best teachers for your child.

At Fern Garden Preschool we attract and hire the best. We then train with our best, with our very own Curriculum Manager and Development Manager who together support our teachers' registration portfolios, curriculum planning, mentoring, and constantly ensure the highest quality outcomes for children are being achieved.

We have become a sought after centre by teachers wanting to grow, experience and develop their careers, and as such, we only work with leaders and teachers who are equally passionate about our shared philosophies, values and vision for 'lifting aspirations' and 'messages of hope' in early childhood education
 

  • We wanted to put your child on the steepest trajectory of hope and possibilities in life.

At Fern Garden Preschool we have invested heavily to create 'never seen before' innovative features in our environment, and teaching and learning programmes to give your child the best head start we possibly can.
 
  • We wanted our teachers to feel valued and empowered so they can give your child their best every day.

We invest back into professional development of our teaching teams so they can continue to learn and deliver the latest best practices in early childhood education for your child, you and your family. See the list on our 'Our Professional Development' page for more information.

We also take care of our colleagues' health and life insurance, financial support and well-being needs as part of our commitment to offer one of the most attractive Benefits and Care Packages in the industry.
 

  • We wanted to give your child our full focus and attention at daycare.

We ensure we have the best Teacher : Child ratios and we operate in the highest band of qualified and experienced teachers from Otumoetai throughout nearby Tauranga suburbs of Bellevue, Bethlehem, Brookfield, Central Tauranga, Cherrywood, Greerton, Judea, Matua, and Pillans Point.
 
  • At Fern Garden Preschool we wanted to ensure your child's nutrition is personally looked after while they are in our care.

We provide diet-specific, healthy, nutritious meals every day by either our qualified chef or professional catering service that specialises in ECE centres (see our sample menu and our very own cookbook).
 
  • We wanted to make all of the above things visible to you every day

You can tell from our Testimonials page by our Parents, Teachers and Local Otumoetai Community cheering us on each month, plus we know you will see all of this too when you visit us.
