Is Early Childhood Education Important?

A recent report by the Ministry of Education and the New Zealand Council for Educational Research found that children benefit from quality early childhood education. The report showed that those children who had attended a quality early childhood education centre had higher scores as teenagers, on average, for literacy, numeracy, logical problem solving, and social skills. At Little Buddies Learning Centre, our staff is dedicated to ensuring that your child has the very best care and learning opportunities available – you can trust that we are a quality childcare centre, with excellent staff ratios, and fantastic facilities.

Our Environment

Little Buddies Learning Centre is dedicated to providing an optimal environment and excellent learning opportunities for your child. We have separate areas to cater to the needs of children of different ages; babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Each area is designed to include stimulating resources and activities that are full of fun, inspire learning and build confidence.

Babies (birth – 2 yrs)

For babies under the age of 2 years we have provided a large, colourful and inviting nursery with fun-filled activities that encourage a multitude of developmental skills. A peaceful sleep room provides a calming atmosphere where twinkling stars help to drift the little angels off to sleep.

Toddlers (2 – 3 yrs) & Pre-schoolers (3 – 6 yrs)

For toddlers and older children we provide a separate large area where they can enjoy a wonderful array of activities to meet the unique needs of each individual child. This area and activities are carefully planned, implemented and monitored to enhance every child’s holistic development – social, emotional, physical and intellectual.


We provide each age group with its own outdoor play area. For babies there is a safe, clean and inviting place where they can crawl and explore, encouraging curiosity. For Toddlers and older children there is an exciting playground with play huts, sand-pits, brightly coloured play structures and climbing frames, all of which help to develop motor skills and encourage social play and self-confidence.
