New Shoots Children’s Centres Auckland, Waikato & Bay of Plenty


Our approach to learning at New Shoots is through play-based theory and our early childhood centres have specially designed rooms for infants, toddlers and preschoolers.

We are driven by integrity and are local and community focussed. We strive to make a positive impact on our children, and to provide them with a fun, exciting place to grow and learn.

At New Shoots we design our own early childhood education centres. Each one is unique and uses carefully considered, high end environmental design to create a space that perfectly suits the needs of the tamariki and teachers and encourages imagination and play.

We strive to use environmentally friendly design practices and our resources are carefully sourced and provide varied learning opportunities.
 

New Shoots Curriculum


Our curriculum at New Shoots is key to the children’s development, and encompasses a wide range of practices and research, all within a New Zealand context.

Our passionate staff provide the tamariki and family/whânau with support and respect.

We are constantly innovating and improving our centres and training our staff, based on new ideas and research.
 

New Shoots Group Sizes


Our early childhood centres have specially designed rooms for infants, toddlers and preschoolers.

There are regular opportunities provided for interaction between age groups. This is particularly important when there are tamariki attending from the same whanau.
 
  • Infant Rooms have an average teacher to child ratio of 1:4 and a maximum group size of 12 – 16 tamariki.
 
  • Toddler Rooms have an average teacher to child ratio of 1:6 and a maximum group size of 15 – 25 tamariki.
 
  • Preschool Rooms have an average teacher to child ratio of 1:8 and a maximum group size of 20 – 28 tamariki.
 

New Shoots Environments


New Shoots Children’s Centres are purpose-built, designed in collaboration between architects, engineers and consultants, landscape architects and early childhood professionals with a commitment to primarily functionality and secondarily aesthetics.

Every decision in the design process is led by putting children’s needs and aspirations first. New Shoots have an in-house design team working constantly on innovative ideas to inspire children, teachers and families.

Each environment is unique with a design concept that is contextual to the site and its community. They are oriented to receive natural daylight minimising the need for lighting.

We use passive ventilation methods to limit cross infection and reduce harmful CO2 build ups. Materials are selected with an understanding of the impact they have on a child’s health and well-being.

All items sourced are hand-picked and often designed specifically for early childhood centre to ensure an ethical supply chain and increased longevity.

We are very proud to work with some of the best suppliers who care as much as we do about the impact they are having on the environment and the communities within it.

Our aspiration is to provide future generations with opportunities better than those left to us.
 

Meals at New Shoots


At New Shoots Children’s Centres we value the importance of food and nutrition and we appreciate the impact we have in establishing healthy eating habits, helping to shape your child’s attitude towards food, and setting them up for life.

It is recognised now more than ever that the quality of food that tamariki eat significantly contributes to growth and development and is vital for young bodies and minds.

We offer whole foods made up of largely unprocessed, seasonal, natural, healthy ingredients and more often than not, gluten free. Where possible our products are New Zealand grown and locally sourced.

Our carefully designed menu has been created by London City and Guild trained Chefs and is monitored and checked by a qualified nutritionist.

This ensures it is well balanced, high-quality, nutrient-dense, meeting nutritional guidelines, and, importantly, delicious! This provides parents’ confidence that their child is getting the nutrients they need and simultaneously enjoying food.

Whole, nutrient-rich foods that we use include fresh lean meat, vegetables, fruit, whole grain bread, protein and fibre-rich grains including; polenta, rolled oats, quinoa and buckwheat, to name a few.

We have focussed on eliminating processed foods and have carefully considered our use of whole and additive-free foods to optimise nutrition.
