Children growing by connecting with the world around them

At Gumboots & Grasshoppers Childcare and Early Learning Centre we encourage children to grow through connections. Connections with other people, connections with the environment and cognitive connections.

Childcare and Early Learning Centre

We have a beautiful, purpose built 550sqm childcare and early learning centre on a large 5000 sqm section at 708 Te Kowhai Road.

We offer a picturesque rural setting with one of the largest playgrounds in the Waikato, giving children plenty of room to run, play and create. 

Children grow fruit and vegetables, learn about sustainability and the environment and play with our animals.

Our on site chef creates nutritious and homely meals from our commercial kitchen. Meals provided include; morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, and late snack.

We offer a warm and nurturing home away from home for children aged 12 weeks to 5 years.

We have three beautiful rooms, each with hand-picked, child focused, high quality resources and an amazing teaching team. 

Our learning programme is based on the New Zealand National Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whariki.

We have a community focus and enjoy participating in community events and engaging with our local retirement village and school.
