Our Story

Our Story

Small Oaks Early Learning Centre was previously know as Original Kids and has been a part of the Manurewa community for almost 30 years. The centre is a converted bungalow that has been renovated to offer a balance of learning environments within a homely setting.  Since purchasing the centre in 2015 our established team of teachers have worked to create a centre that is not only warm and welcoming to all but also a stable environment for children to grow and to thrive.  Our centre is a small mixed aged setting where siblings and whānau are able to enjoy time together while making new friends and where children are able to engage in tuakana teina, learning from one another.

Small Oaks Centre Philosophy

Here at Small Oaks we view the environment as being the third teacher, alongside parents and teachers.  We believe that all children who leave here will be confident in their identity, language and culture. 

As teachers we will strive to create an environment that supports children to be, respectful, independent, competent learners who have the skills and knowledge required for lifelong learning.
