The Village is an early childhood education centre providing quality care and education for children from birth to five years.
At The Village, we celebrate diversity and individuality while helping to prepare children to become contributing members within the global community. Relationships between children, carers, parents/whanau and the local community are a key focus of our programme, and we welcome family participation in all the children's activities.
What makes us different?
We offer early child care and education services in Tauranga. We group children by age into 3 areas (Tots, Explorers, Preschool) allowing us to provide suitable educational experiences for each age group.
If your after a day care center that is family based, you can't go past the team at the village. We sadly relocated cities and wished we could take the village with us. My sons time at the center was amazing, he was supported by his teachers from 5months to 2years to be the confident, out going little boy that he is today. Friendly, caring and 200% supportive, the village really is just that a center that becomes family, supporting you to raise your children. Highly recommended.
From the minute we stepped into the village, we felt welcome, included, and the sense we had walked into a well-managed, well-oiled machine of a centre. After a few years of moving from centre to centre (due to work commitments), we have had an opportunity to know what works and what doesn't - and this centre truly WORKS. The staff are clearly well-trained, and they balance loving care with quality education. My sons confidence and sense of self has grown exponentially in the time we've been here, and every day he has learnt something I would have assumed was beyond his years - because the teachers encourage him to ask questions, and then help him work out how to find the answers. I am incredibly impressed at the quality of education he is receiving, and I believe he will be fully prepared for the leap to school when that time comes.
