Nurturing every child's potential in Tauranga

At Little Pals, we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential. Our carefully tailored programs are designed to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment where children can learn, grow, and flourish. With 10 years of experience in early childhood education, we are committed to providing the highest quality care and education to families in Tauranga.

Our programs


Our nurturing infant program provides a safe and loving environment where your baby can thrive. Our experienced educators focus on providing individualised care, fostering emotional and physical development, and creating a strong foundation for future learning.


Our dynamic toddler program encourages exploration, discovery, and social interaction. We provide a variety of age-appropriate activities and resources that promote language development, problem-solving skills, and independence.


Our comprehensive preschool program prepares children for a successful transition to primary school. Our curriculum emphasises literacy, numeracy, science, and social studies, while also nurturing creativity, critical thinking, and a love for learning.


Our playgroup sessions offer a fun and engaging environment for children to socialise, learn, and explore. These sessions are perfect for parents and caregivers who want to connect with other families and provide their children with early learning experiences.

Our approach

At Little Pals, we believe that play is essential for a child's development. Through play, children learn about themselves, their environment, and how to interact with others. Our programs are designed to encourage active learning, exploration, and creativity, providing children with opportunities to develop their physical, cognitive, social, and emotional skills.

We also recognize the importance of biculturalism and te ao Māori (the Māori worldview) in early childhood education. Our programs incorporate Māori culture, values, and language, helping children to develop a strong sense of identity and belonging.
