Our childcare and learning rooms

In the Pukeko Room (3 months to 2 years) We have a mixture of infants, crawling babies and moving toddlers. We develop warm, responsive relationships with our tamariki and our practice in this room is responsive and respectful of children’s autonomy, competence and capabilities. We provide a calm and nurturing environment where infant’s routines are unrushed, relaxed and child focused; babies are stimulated and supported, and toddlers are challenged and extended.

In the Kiwi Room (2 years – 3 years). Our toddlers are exposed to sensory exploration and are encouraged and supported to develop social skills and independence through group and independent play.

The Tui Room (4-5years) Focuses on developing independent skills, socialisation and helping children prepare for school with our unique Be School Ready initiative. We value and promote a learning programme that enables children the space and opportunity to explore, experiment and take risks when engaged in play.

The transitions between the rooms are carefully planned to ensure every child is developmentally ready and move with their friend groups.

kind words from our parents


Our daughter Bella has been with EduKids Montel since she was 1 year old. We are very happy with her progress and how well she has settled. The teachers are very nurturing and passionate on what they do and always encouraging Bella. We were very impressed when Bella started to use the words Please and Thank You a lot more and we were most impress when she started learning to use sign language which was taught by one of the teachers. Bella is more independent and we are very grateful for the support being given at EduKids Montel. We are looking forward to her transitioning into the preschool room and being well prepared to going to school.


Gardening and Sustainability

Teaching our tamariki the importance of living a sustainable life is something that we all value and having gardens that the children help tend to is a great way to do just that!

Our Garden Project

​We have planted some vegetables in our garden, including Tomatoes, Spinach, Carrots, Parsley and Beetroot.
