Our Rooms

The Tui Room, a nurturing haven for our youngest members aged 0 to 2 years, is where our babies explore and grow in a warm and secure environment. For our energetic toddlers aged 2 to 3 years.

We blend the Pikler approach’s freedom with Montessori’s joy of discovery. Our warm, stimulating environment offers open-ended play, sensory adventures, and respectful care, letting their natural curiosity bloom. Come see how our Penrose daycare fosters playful learning and healthy development!

Here are our daycare & childcare guiding principles:

  • We give our complete attention – especially when involved in a caring activity.
  •  Slow down our pace to sync with children.
  • Build trust, and your relationship, during the caring activity times.
  •  Babies are never put into a position which they cannot get into by themselves.
  •  Allow babies uninterrupted time for play.
  •  Babies send us cues all the time. Tune in respectfully.

The Kea Room offers a vibrant space filled with opportunities for play, learning, and discovery. Our “Kea room” though with careful childcare planning flows with engaging activities, open-ended play, and sensory adventures, all designed to spark their curiosity and build confidence.

We understand toddlers still need a guiding hand, so our nurturing teachers provide gentle support as they navigate the early education. Every playful discovery in our daycare centre becomes a stepping stone towards lifelong learning and a love for exploration, laying the foundation for a successful early childhood education journey.
