Arohanui and Harinui Childcare Centres nurture confident, competent children
Set in Kerikeri in the beautiful Bay of Islands, you will find two unique early childhood centres for your child. Arohanui was established in 2001, and Harinui was built four years later. The centres are both under the same family ownership. We believe in providing high quality care and education for children aged from three months to five years, set in a beautiful environment focused on our natural ecosystem. The two purpose built centres, and our wilderness area called Ngaherenui, are set on two acres of land just on the edge of Kerikeri and Waipapa. Children and their whānau are warmly welcomed into our well-resourced childcare centres, with beautifully designed outdoor spaces with an ambience which stands out.
At Arohanui and Harinui Childcare Centres we want to encourage our children to wonder, to ponder, to discover, to get excited, to laugh, to get messy, to be creative, to be active and to share experiences with their friends and teachers.
We want them to reflect on their day and retell stories to parents at home. We want them to see themselves in print, and to look at their portfolio books. We want them to foster the love of learning, and to revisit their rich experiences again and again so they can become creative thinkers. We want them to be with passionate and committed teachers who get excited about their learning journey. To us, play is a fundamental tool in learning about our world.
