Our Philosophy

Meadowood Community Creche is a not for profit community early childhood centre.  We offer sessional and day options for children of mixed ages and provide high quality early childhood care and education.


We aim to support children, their families and whanau by providing a safe enviroment in a mixed aged early childhood centre.  We are committed to honouring New Zealand's bi-cultural heritage.  Our teachers will strive to provide a high quality environment that ignites and nuture's children's passions, potential and a love of learning through play and relationships.


We believe in developing relationships between children, teachers, whanau and community that are based on trust, respect and caring.
