Welcome to Summerhill Early Learning

Summerhill Early Learning offers enrolments for Tamariki from birth to school.  We have three age specific, spacious, well resourced rooms.

Tamariki at Summerhill Early Learning are empowered to learn by our dedicated, qualified, and registered teaching team who take every opportunity to build upon the natural curiosities and interests of tamariki. 

Our stunning outdoor environment provides further opportunities for tamariki to explore their own thoughts about how the world works through play.  Our Kaiako use this environment to extend on children’s working theories through gardening and growing our own fruit and vegetables, implementing sustainability practices, messy and water play, physical activity, gross-motor development, sensory exploration and innovative thinking through construction, deconstruction, and creativity.  

Tamariki will be engaged in their learning, develop their language, thinking and social emotional skills.  

We offer up to 30 hours ECE for 3-4 year olds and up to 10 hours for 2-3 year olds.
