ABC Greenmeadows – What matters to you, matters to us. This simple phrase is the backbone of our philosophy. It is our mission to find out what matters to you and your family in the care and education of your child, and to partner with you in best meeting the needs of your child.
We are conveniently located on one of Napier city’s main traffic routes- directly opposite the beautiful Anderson Park and in walking distance of the Greenmeadows shopping centre, providing our children with many opportunities to explore our local community and environment. We are also in close proximity to Greenmeadows School and Tamatea Intermediate and High School. This provides families from many suburbs ease of access between work, schools and home.
Our centre consists of 2 houses which stand back-to-back and boast impressively spacious outdoor play areas. Our grounds spread from Kennedy Road across to Tait Drive providing two access points. We are a home-like centre for those parents looking for a place with a heart for children, and a passion to respond to family values and aspirations. These are just some of the many things that make this incredible family-orientated centre so popular.
ABC Greenmeadows boasts three teaching areas. Children transition between these as they mature and develop throughout their time with us. Each room has a special nature or mauri that characterises the teaching and learning experience.
We pride ourselves on
- Attracting staff who are nurturing and sensitive to the needs of you and your child. Our staff are emotionally present and respectful of a child’s individuality. We actively seek teachers who are able to nurture a child’s sense of empathy and who inspire children to care for others in a genuine way.
- Creating environments where children experience growth, safety, love, strength and peace on a daily basis. And where children express daily kindness, appreciation, and love for others. We are purposeful about creating a climate of unity, kindness and togetherness, where children enjoy many opportunities to express their ‘Mana’.
- Providing physical spaces and resources that provide for rich sensory experiences, safe exploration and active whole-body learning. Spaces that have an inviting range of creative, construction, music, science, literacy and numeracy experiences available.
