The MBCC Philosophy

Children and their whanau are at the heart of everything we do.  The very essence of Murrays Bay Childcare Centre is warmth, peace and F.U.N (family, unity and nurturing). This builds a sense of belonging and the foundation for the development of mana and wellbeing.

Our ¼ acre traditional kiwi backyard and home provides a unique space for children.  They feel empowered to take risks, build relationships, discover and learn about their place in the world.  They have opportunities to connect with nature and collaborate with children older and younger, all the while creating memories in our wondrous, inviting and expansive environment.  The diverse learning needs of children as they grow and develop are met and extended through meaningful learning opportunities.

Children, their whanau and staff are exposed to and enriched by the dual culture of the Treaty partners. Each child and their family are special and bring to the centre their cultural values, aspirations and beliefs which we recognise and foster.  We celebrate the melting pot that our community has become. Kia ora, Goeie dag, Pravit, Ni hao, Hello!


He aha te mea nui o teo ao?  He tangata, he tangata, he tangata. 

What is the most important thing? It is the people, it is the people, it is the people.
