Motueka Early Learning Centre will have strong relationships with our families/ whanau and community by providing a safe, nurturing, sustainable environment where children can learn through play, adventure, exploration and equitable  care from our committed and passionate team.

‘Ko te Whanau te Putake o te kaupapa – the family, the heart of the matter’




At the Motueka Early Learning Centre we view inclusiveness, kindness and respect as values that support and foster lifelong social skills.

We believe in promoting positive outcomes for children through respectful and reciprocal relationships and we value fun and play as meaningful ways to foster this learning and development.

We believe in celebrating differences; acknowledging and appreciating the individuality and diversity in our children and their family’s aspirations, contributions and achievements within a welcoming whanau environment
