We are set on magical acres in a home-like environment surrounded by rolling hills, farm animals, established trees and special gardens.
Children experience an enchanting and stimulating environment, with the environment playing an important role (regarded as “the third teacher”). Children are supported by qualified, motivated teachers who are passionate about their learning and growing confident, competent children of our future.
At The Secret Garden Childcare we value the importance of fostering relationships with parents, families and the wider community.
At the Secret Garden we are passionate about relationships and learning.
Our programme is based on our four priorities for learning.
Our Feilding centre opened in 2012 is next to Feilding golf course. This centre was established through a commitment and passion of wanting to create the best learning environment for all who come. Our centre is a place where you are able to revisit childhoods of old through interactions with animals and nature and provides a solid foundation upon which we can all search for understandings about the world around us.
Our Palmerston North "sister centre”, situated in the Kelvin Grove area was opened in February 2015. This centre set on 7 acres of farmland was built on the same philosophy of creating a quality educational experience for children and their families. This centre offers many adventures and opportunities in a unique environment complimented by quality teachers who support positive relationships and learning outcomes for all children.
We have separate Under 2 and over 2’s area and offer 20 hours free Childcare for all children aged 3 and 4 years. Come and visit our special places, you’ll wish you could go through your own childhood all over again!
