Welcome to Pukeko Early Learning Centre

Here at Pukeko ELC we provide a home away from home for children aged from three months to school age.  We ensure a safe, caring, respectful, fun, and natural environment with excellent staff ratios.  Our aim is to nurture happy, confident, and curious learners and to instill a life long love of learning.

Our Philosophy

We are inspired by the Reggio Emilia and RIE approaches and strive to incorporate these into our daily practices.
