Welcome to our Centre
Buttercups Early Learning Centre provides a fun and nurturing environment, where your child receives meaningful care, as well as personalised learning and development. Your child will love our separate Nursery, Toddler and Preschool areas, all well laid out for fun and learning at every age and stage, including a family play area, an art area, as well as a quiet space for reading and reflection.
We are open 7:00am – 6:00pm, Monday to Friday, conveniently located in Pukekohe, just across the road from Pukekohe Hill School and in close vicinity to local parks. We are within a short travelling distance to the Pukekohe CBD, making us a natural choice for busy parents and local families in the community.
We are fortunate to have our very own centre cook 5 days a week who prepares nutritious & delicious meals for all of our enrolled children within the centre; morning-tea, lunch, afternoon tea and late snack.
At Buttercups, our experienced teachers are warm, welcoming and fun. They guide our tamariki to engage in challenging experiences and treat all children with respect, providing equal opportunities to ensure your child gets the best start in life.
Parents love the rich sense of community that we instil within the centre, and our curriculum at Buttercups reflects our philosophy for strong relationships. We value input from parents, teachers, whānau, children and our wonderful community.
"My family has been a part of the Buttercups Early Learning Centre family since my daughter was 18 months old (now 6 years). Her little brother joined when he was 13 months old (now 4 years). I have always found the staff to be super friendly and approachable, my kids have always had smiles on their faces after a fun day at daycare. We, as a family can happily vouch for the team at Buttercups."
"I have two children at Buttercups and they absolutely love it there, they are always happy when we arrive and always smiling and having fun when I pick them up. They even ask to go on the weekends! We have experience with both the Nursery and Toddler Rooms and can say all the teachers are fabulous and go above and beyond when it comes to caring for children and their families. They really take an interest in every child on a singular basis and are able to provide care and education to benefit every child’s needs and development. Just under 3 years at Buttercups and love it! We also moved out of Pukekohe but decided to keep them there and do the drive daily as we love the environment and wouldn’t want our kids missing out."
"Buttercups is a home away from home. Our daughter loved it from the moment she started, and the educators are now part of the family. We love seeing the smiles at drop off and our happy wee girl on pickup, covered in sand and paint - that's how we know she's had a brilliant day. The food is homemade onsite, and looks delicious. Cannot recommend Buttercups highly enough."
