Welcome to our Centre
Welcome and thanks for stopping by! Our homely and well-established Early Childhood centre offers a safe and secure environment for children aged 0-6yrs. With a super convenient location, you will find us nestled in the heart of Otahuhu, making us a natural choice for busy parents and local families in the community.
At Happy Feet, 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 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.
Our 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 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."
“A big thank you to the teachers at Happy Feet Otahuhu for the hard work that they are doing for looking after our children. We do really appreciate your work.”
“I am very thankful for the love and care that the staff give to my darling baby. They have been able to settle her since she started when she was 4 months old. It gives me a lot of ease and peace of mind that my baby is well looked after and loves the environment that she is growing up in. Thank you to the staff at Otahuhu and they deserve to be recognised for their kind and loving work they do every day for my darling baby and all the other children.”
