At Peanuts, we embrace the rich natural surroundings and integrate them into our educational approach. We implement Te Whariki curriculum, ensuring that each child's learning journey is tailored to their unique strengths, interests, and needs.

We understand the importance of strong partnerships with parents/whanau and actively collaborate with them to align our teaching practices with their aspirations for their children. Together, we create a supportive and inclusive community where every child thrives.

Join us at Peanuts, where passionate staff, the beauty of rural living, and a carefully crafted curriculum come together to create an exceptional early childhood experience for your little ones.

Our purpose - to provide a nurturing and enriching early learning experience that celebrates the uniqueness of every child.

We prioritise holistic development, fostering curiosity, creativity, and well-being. We do this through strong relationships with families and our community. We create an inclusive environment that values cultural diversity and prepares children for lifelong success.

"Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood, for it alone is the free expression of what is in a child's soul."
