Kopuwai Early Learning Centre is the only not-for-profit, parent run childcare centre in Alexandra and we pride ourselves on being a small centre, with a strong whānau and community focus. We have high teacher:child ratios, diverse settings and planning that focuses on individual children's needs.

Meet our team. We have a great team with a wide range of training and skills.

Our Centre's programme is developed around children’s present needs and interests, the principles of Te Whãriki.

Our teachers use specific teaching strategies to ensure we provide a secure, stimulating and challenging environment for all learner.

We are available Monday to Friday during opening hours to answer any questions, so please get in touch.

“Teachers use effective strategies to ensure smooth routines and transitions between parts of the day. Very young children are settled and show a strong sense of belonging within the centre whānau. Teachers are highly responsive to their nonverbal cues and gently foster children’s oral language development. Teachers know when to stand back and allow children to freely explore and problem solve.”
