Piccolini Private Kindergarten & Childcare Havelock North

At Piccolini, we believe that as an Early Education Centre we have an important part to play in the Havelock North community and a very special opportunity to positively impact young children’s lives in their early stages of development.

With a safe and nurturing kindy and childcare environment for your child, we provide a place for children to learn, develop and grow through social interaction in an engaging environment, carefully set up by kaiako, with lots of opportunities to explore and learn.

Our kindergarten and daycare centre caters for tamariki aged 0 – 6yrs. We are open 7.30am – 5.30pm, Monday – Friday. Located in beautiful Havelock North, we are a short travelling distance to many local schools, making us a natural choice for busy parents and local families in the community.

Your child will love the well laid out learning corners at our centre, consisting of a family play area, creative art corner as well as a quiet space for reading and reflection.  There’s also plenty of natural resources with space to explore.

Our childcare teaching team is made up of passionate and experienced teachers who are warm, welcoming and naturally wonderful people. Our qualified Early Childhood Educators bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team and their special connection with our children is cherished and supported at our kindy and daycare centre in Havelock North.

Teachers guide our Tamariki in learning, engaging them with fun, sensory and also challenging experiences to nurture their development.  All children are valued at their unique stage of life, respected for who they are and have equal opportunities to ensure the best possible start in life.  This special environment with a community of talented individuals, encourages the joy and wonder of learning to come alive.

"We are very happy with the centre and are grateful that our child is happy and content."
