Happy Feet Childcare Centre Otahuhu 

Our homely and well-established Otahuhu childcare centre offers a safe and secure environment for children aged 0 – 6 years. We are conveniently located right in the heart of Otahuhu and just a short drive from neighbouring Penrose, Mangere East and Papatoetoe. Our daycare centre is ideal for busy parents and local families in the community.

At Happy Feet Childcare, we have three age appropriate classrooms, specifically designed and set up to meet the needs of each individual child’s age and stage. This means that our kaiako are able to offer engaging, creative and age-specific learning opportunities that are relevant to a child’s age, stage and interests. Children are surrounded by their friends who are of similar ages where they build strong friendships and learn from one another as they transition through Happy Feet Otahuhu side by side.

With the inviting smell of home cooked meals and baking, you won’t have to search very far to find our fabulous and passionate childcare centre cook who freshly prepares all meals in the heart of our centre.

We proudly operate our own Happy Feet centre van, allowing us to help support both new and existing families who require assistance with transport to the centre from Penrose, Mangere East, Papatoetoe and other areas.

Our child care teaching team is made up of passionate, experienced teachers who are warm, welcoming and naturally wonderful people. Our qualified Early Childhood Educators bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team and their special connection with our children is cherished and supported in our daycare centre.

Teachers guide our Tamariki in learning, engaging them with fun, sensory and also challenging experiences to nurture their development.  All children are valued at their unique stage of life, respected for who they are and have equal opportunities to ensure the best possible start in life.  This special environment with a community of talented individuals, encourages the joy and wonder of learning to come alive.

"I view myself as extremely lucky to have found your daycare centre. You have the best childcare facility, making both teaching and learning interesting. Thank you so much for making my child a better person each and every day. Highly recommend."

"As a first time mum, the staff have been so supportive to both myself and our little one. The teachers are so kind and empathetic and treat ours like their own. We don’t have any family here and a couple of the teachers have become our adopted aunties ❤"
